EU to deepen relationship with Horn of Africa on peace, human development, economic recovery

In establishing a new strategy with the Horn of Africa, the EU will deepen its strategic relationship with the region on areas of cooperation such as democracy, peace and security, social and human development, trade and regional integration, and post-COVID-19 social and economic recovery. 

The EU’s new strategy will promote multilateralism, provide "principled" humanitarian assistance, address the growing impact of the climate crisis and environmental degradation, enhance resilience, and strengthen the health sector while exploring potentially boosting local vaccine manufacturing capacity. Providing the region’s young people with skills and education will drive the EU’s approach to social and human development.
