The EU and Japan have so much in common.

Our values – democracy and the rule of law.
Our economic model and a certain vision of the world.

We promote a multilateral global system based on rules designed to protect and benefit all.

President @vonderleyen at 🇪🇺🇯🇵 Summit ↓
@vonderleyen In this increasingly unpredictable world, the EU can count on one of its oldest and closest allies.🇯🇵

Also, on further cooperation and alignment on sanctions in response to Russia's aggression against Ukraine.

@vonderleyen Our collaboration with Japan is excellent, but we can achieve much more.

First, we are today launching an EU-Japan Digital Partnership. The first of its kind.

Because leadership in this field is key to our competitiveness and security.

#Mali is not officially on the agenda of today's #EUAUSummit summit in Brussels.

But given the question mark that now hangs over future EU military involvement in the #Sahel, it is sure to come up on the sidelines.
The #EUAUSummit is now underway.

@eucopresident Charles Michel starts the opening ceremony by saying the relationship needs to be rethought.

The context is Africa now has other partner choices than the West: China and Russia. Image
President #Macron is addressing the #EUAUsummit now.

"The summit we're having today comes at an exceptional crossroads in time, where we as Europeans need to decide whether we want to build a unique alliance with you in Africa." Image

🟢🔵 Africa and the EU, together today, for tomorrow.

For us, #GlobalGateway stands for building sustainable and trusted connections that work for people and the planet.

Strengthening health, education and research systems across the world is a priority for us.

#TeamEurope is lead contributor to #COVAX with close to €3.5 billion and is Africa’s biggest #COVID19 vaccines donor.

We are helping accelerate the roll-out of vaccines with supply of auxiliary material like syringes, supply chain management, logistics and service delivery.
We will support African partners in strengthening local pharmaceutical systems and manufacturing capacity.

This means better access to medicines and vaccines for people in the region.

the #GlobalGateway strategy seeks to 'unleash' EUR300 bn for infrastructure investments around the world based on 'values, transparency and sustainability'
values first infrastructure is a new one:

wonder what values embodied by (German) Compact with Africa push for PPPs in health or education that force user-fees and de-facto privatisation of social infrastructure

1/ The #GlobalGateway proposed by the @EU_Commission is a most welcome initiative. It builds on EU strategic priorities and strength on development finance for sustainable investment
2/ But the real question is whether the EU will have the means of its ambitions. Where is the additional financial firepower? Or is it just smart re-branding of what the EU planned to do anyway?

EU aid long-term budget is set. Programming of EU aid is already underway.
3/ The EU needs to collectively identify new sources of funding beyond its current resources to deliver at scale and truly compete with the BRI.

It needs to empower its PDBs/DFIs to do even more, beyond EFSD+: @EIB @EBRD @EDFInetwork @AFD_en @KfW_FZ_int @CDCgroup @AECIDEGIPTO

The EU launched today its plan to support infrastructure development around the world: the #GlobalGateway. This is more a repackaging of existing initiatives than EU fresh cash, but anyhow represents an important step forward for the EU. Let’s see why [Thread🧵]
Baseline: the world needs major infrastructure investments. The World Bank estimates that to achieve key global goals –such as climate protection, access to energy, water and sanitation, greater mobility, etc– the world must invest in infrastructure EUR 1.3 trillion per year
China understood the strategic importance of global infrastructure development a decade ago and launched in 2013 the Belt and Road Initiative. Meanwhile, the EU action in the field remained fragmented in countless initiatives, undertaken at both EU and national level
