On the occasion of the 10th edition of the MEDays Forum, the Amadeus Institute launches the “MEDays Initiatives”, platforms that will gather high-level personalities who will reflect upon and advance recommendations and measures on different political, economic and sustainable development topics. Working groups, consisting of decision-makers, opinion leaders and diverse economic operators will work together in closed meetings, in parallel to the MEDays Forum. The objective of the debates are to create the dialogue and to overcome challenges, in order to come up with concrete proposals to the challenges we are facing.
The MEDays initiatives have been designed to make the Forum more operational and to reinforce its stature and ability to bring about new ideas. The 10th edition of the MEDays Forum will hold two different initiatives, namely: ‘’Euro African Talks Initiative’’ and ‘’African Health Initiative ’
This first initiative will bring together more than 30 high-level leaders, mainly former heads of state, European and African prime ministers and ministers, to debate around common challenges for the two continents and to create more understanding between the two parties in order to enable better solutions to common challenges. The objective will also be to explore new collaboration opportunities between the two continents. The “Euro-African Talks” initiative has been designed to create dialogue and rapprochement between the European and the African continents, in order to inspire a new Euro-African dynamic. Several sectorial issues, namely the financial sector, FDI in Africa, immigration, co-development and security governance will be discussed.
The third initiative is a platform dedicated to discussing key health challenges in Africa and exploring investment opportunities in the health and pharmaceutical sectors in Africa. This initiative aims to respond to the lack of access to quality health care for African populations. In short, the objective of the initiative is to bring solutions to the major concerns of African citizens. The discussions will be in the form of workshops between health care professionals and investors.
