The events are being organized by the Roscongress Foundation, and the co-organizers of the Russia–Africa Economic Forum are Russian Export Center and Afreximbank.

The high level discussions would vary from access to housing, one of the most pressing issues facing most African countries, to humanitarian partnership between Russia and African countries. Participants would also discuss how to strengthen ties between Africa and Russia in thd transportation sector as well as the role of the media in developing Africa.

Security would be a dominant issue at the summit, and one of the key panel sessions ‘A Safe Africa’ will take place on the sidelines of the Russia–Africa Economic Forum on October 24.

The event will be devoted to security issues faced by African countries and their people.

The key discussion themes will be measures needed to maintain state security and ways to timely prevent possible threats, protect the state border and major facilities of state importance, promptly identify offenders, optimize the work of urban infrastructure, and other issues.

The organizers of the summit said a news release that an effective set of measures has been developed in Russia to counter terrorism, curtail illegal activity, and provide dependable protection for citizens.

Russian organizations and companies will share their experience with their African partners during the session.

The session will be moderated by Alexey Ivanov, Head of External Economic Activity and Military-Technical Cooperation at Russian Technologies State Corporation

“Security problems issues are relevant to any region of the world, and they are especially important to Africa. Terrorist attacks involving loss of life, hostage-taking, and crime are a challenge to the sustainable development of African countries. As part of the ‘A Safe Africa’ session, we plan to discuss the most significant threats and come up with proposals for building a regional security architecture using new technological solutions. Ensuring security in cities, closing borders to criminals, and creating a buffer against the illegal movement of explosives, weapons, drugs, and smuggling are all part of the set of measures that could reduce the level of terrorist danger on the continent”, Alexey Ivanov said.
