Aid for Trade Global Review 2022
Date: 27-29 July 2022
This year’s Global Review takes place against the backdrop of overlapping crises. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to exert a toll on human health and cause turmoil in global trade. Economies everywhere face inflationary pressures with high food and energy prices hitting poor people hardest – and placing additional pressures on hard-pressed public budgets. These pressures are further exacerbated by the war in Ukraine and food security concerns that it has caused. Trade continues to play an important role as a driver not just of economic recovery, but also poverty alleviation and women's economic empowerment. Trade is also an integral part of the transition to low-carbon models of growth and a just climate transition.

Europe and Africa in a time of crisis
Date: 27 June 2022, 13:30 (CEST)
Hybrid, Addis Ababa
Only a few months after the African Union (AU)–European Union (EU) Summit in Brussels, the partnership is being tested. The EU’s Strategic Compass seeks a more ambitious and capable security sector in the face of evolving threats. And AU reforms aim to better position the body to deal with new challenges.
In this context, what is the value-add of the EU–AU partnership? How do we prevent marginal differences from affecting our ability to jointly respond to global cross-border challenges? And how do we enlist other strategic partners?
Africa Forum 2022: Africa On the Move
Date: 28 June 2022, 11:00-17:00 (CEST-1)
Returning, in person, to the City of London on 28 June 2022, our 9th Hogan Lovells Africa Forum, Africa: On the Move, considers what it is going to take to get the wheels of change turning to push the continent towards a sustainable, accelerated growth.
‘Post-pandemic recovery’. This remains one of the most popular phrases when considering Africa’s economic outlook in 2022, and indeed how commentators continue to frame regional analysis globally. Estimations from the IMF point to modest growth from 3.7% this year to 3.8% in 2023, linked to increased inflation rates and an anticipated slowdown in the global economy, overlayed by the impact of geopolitical events outside of Africa. The effects of the pandemic can certainly not be ignored, with the continent having experienced an ‘almost fully synchronised economic downturn in 2020'. Africa’s emergence from recession in 2021 has not only improved sentiments about recovery, it has revitalised and renewed the region’s pre-pandemic optimism; Africa is on the move.
