Energy transition, decarbonization, protection of natural resources and territory, the health of oceans and forests, safety: the green transition is crucial for Africa and its development. If effectively supported, it has the potential to undertake an authentically green path without the use of inefficient technologies and focusing on hydrogen and renewable energy. In this regard, Italy can play a leading role, becoming world champion in sustainability and ecological transition. Italy is at the forefront of the development of the African continent where some of its largest companies have been engaged for decades, but there is also a lot of space for small and medium-sized enterprises in an area of enormous extension that is growing at an accelerated pace both economically, and demographically.

On the bilateral level, Italy is already deeply committed to laying the foundations for the energy and ecological transition of the two shores of the Mediterranean, with particular reference to the formation of human capital, the construction of infrastructures, and the creation of synergies between the Italian productive fabric and the African one. For several years Italy has been among the top countries in the world for volume of Foreign Direct Investments in Africa and among the main energy partners of the Continent. Italian companies (SMEs / SMEs) can lead the global transition because of their specialty in customized products, and niches of excellence with high added value. The Italian economic model built on SMEs can only grow in a continental area in full development where small and medium-sized enterprises have enormous weight.
Among the themes of this new edition, we will have Innovation, Sustainability, Energy Independence, Digital Infrastructures, Strengthening of health systems, Green transition, Training, and Development of the agricultural department. Here lies the starting point for economic and commercial cooperation between Italy and Africa, one that focuses on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as the backbone of the Italian economy, as well as that of Africa. Cooperation based on entrepreneurship, professional training, and entrepreneurship, are three key elements that can lay the foundations for investments in a shared value business and achieve the important sustainable development goals. The 6th edition of the Italy Africa Business Week Forum will seek to bring together African and European political leaders, policymakers, and business representatives to discuss best practices, alliances, and concrete solutions for sustainable development, green investments, and post-pandemic recovery.
