Under the auspices of the Vice-Chair of the European Parliament Development Committee MEP Nirj Deva, the roundtable will provide real life examples of constructive interaction between government and business to achieve sustainable economic development contributing to local and regional development especially in the agriculture sector.

Some of the confirmed speakers include Dr. Patrick Gomes, ACP Secretary General
, H.E. Aziza A. Baroud, Ambassador of Chad to Belgium and the EU, and H.E. Tadeous T. Chifamba, Ambassador of Zimbabwe to Belgium and the EU.
