The aim of the summit is to present African countries with a vision aimed at the development of Africa. Italy wants to have an equal approach with Africa to grow together. For the Italian government, there is a need for a new approach towards Africa, not predatory, not paternalistic but not even charitable. An equal approach to grow together. The advantages are countless as everything that happens in Africa involves Italy: from migration to security to supply chains.
