Ministers of State for Foreign Affairs from Germany and Portugal and EIB Vice President Thomas Östros yesterday joined more than 80 business leaders, diplomats from Africa and Europe, financial experts, and development specialists at the Berlin Green Talk to share investment best practice and outline how to accelerate the green transition in the context of EU-Africa relations.

Participants highlighted how innovation and close cooperation can scale up clean energy, sustainable transport and business investment in Africa. The green transition was highlighted as a unique opportunity that can both create economic opportunities and strengthen economic resilience to COVID-19, as well as increasing protection from a changing climate and enabling more sustainable use of resources.

The virtual dialogue, organised by the EIB and Portuguese Embassy in Berlin, is one of more than 25 events being held across Africa and Europe ahead of the High-Level Green Investment Forum taking place in Lisbon on 23 April.
