The 4th summit between the European and African Union was held at Brussels on April 02 and 03, 2014 and assembled the African and European leaders as well as the senior officials of the above-mentioned institutions. "Invest in the people for peace and prosperity" was the main guideline of the various meetings and gatherings.

Relationship between the European Union and Africa are mainly based upon a common strategy EU-Africa adopted in 2007. Concomitantly with this strategy an action plan for 2011-2013 was approved during the last summit of 2010, with concrete goals within precisely defined cooperation domains, such as peace and security, the democratic governance and the human rights.

Following the visit of the American president Barack Obama on March 26 and of the Chinese president Xi Jinping from March 27 till 29, the Brussels airport and the military airbase of Melsbroek was once again in effervescence as to accommodate the various governmental aircraft, quite unusual in our regions.
