The fourth EU-Arab World Summit will take place at Megaron Concert Hall in central Athens on Oct 29-30.

This year's summit is titled A Strategic Partnership, and it will focus on economic collaboration and investments, especially in the fields of energy, trade, science, technology and healthcare.

The EU-Arab World Summit is an international forum of economic and political dialogue between the EU and the Arab World. Since 2016, when the summit was established in cooperation with the Government of the Hellenic Republic, its goal has been to identify and promote the two regions' common interests and values collectively and single out key priority areas for cooperation, taking into account regional and global challenges.
