EU-Arab World Summit is an international Forum of economic and political dialogue between the EU and the Arab World. Since 2016, when the Summit was established in cooperation with the Government of the Hellenic Republic, our goal has been to identify and promote the two regions’ common interests and values collectively and single out key priority areas for cooperation, taking account of regional and global challenges.
The EU-Arab World Summit, being the first forum held within European grounds to acknowledge the need for further enhancement of EU-Arab relations in turbulent times for the global community, has been organized for the past three years with the support of the Greek government, the European Parliament, Arab League and the European Commission.
Based on the significant success of the previous three Summits, the 4th EU-Arab World Summit entitled “A strategic partnership”, will focus on economic cooperation and investments, especially in the fields of energy, trade, science and technology. Securing respect, peace and collaboration between the two regions, will also be discussed during the Summit. The Summit’s vision is to continue forging a deep and comprehensive relationship between the EU and the Arab World, based on the solid foundation of our common values and respect of each other's unique cultural heritage. The 4th EU-Arab World Summit will take place in Athens, Greece, at Megaron Concert Hall, on October 29th-30th, 2019.
The Summit is organized by the pan-Arab conference organizing group Al-Iktissad Wal-Aamal in cooperation with Delphi Economic Forum, featuring the largest Arab construction group Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) as a Strategic Sponsor.
