The European Business Council for Africa

On February 17, EBCAM attended the conference “Towards fairer markets in Africa and the EU – Fostering international partnerships in competition policy” at the College of Europe in Bruges, Belgium.

Three different panels took place during the day tackling cutting-edge topics like digital competition, international and regional cooperation and economic development, and the African Continental Free trade Area (AfCFTA) as a platform to foster competition.

Many subjects were brought on the table with different visions and perspectives from the African and European sides with the goal of building an inclusive cooperation. These discussions ranged from studying existing European experiences and best practices to setting up African solutions that take into account African countries’ realities and struggles with the aim of promoting a fruitful regional and continental integration.
