South Africa and the European Union are meeting on 15 November in Brussels for the seventh Summit of the SA-EU Strategic Partnership.

It is a high-level event with South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, and President of the Commission, Jean-Claude Junker, attending.

This EU-SA summit is significant because it is the first one since 2013 despite the partnership calling for annual engagements.

Five key areas are on the agenda: economic, trade and investment cooperation; development cooperation; global challenges such as climate change, migration and human rights; multilateralism and cooperation in multilateral fora; and the situation in the neighbourhoods of each partner.
