On March 19–20, 2023 an International Parliament Conference “Russia – Africa” was held in Moscow. Members of parliaments of over 40 African countries as well as deputies of the State Duma, members of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation and representatives of the business and academic community participated in this conference. Within the Conference, several round tables were organized on March 19 where the most crucial issues were discussed on the inter-parliamentary cooperation in the field of science and education, the search of the joint solution on economic challenges, different security issues and the resistance to the Western neocolonialism. On March 20, the plenary session entitled “Russia – Africa in the Multipolar World” took place with the participation of Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia.

The Conference not only identified major problems that impede the further sustainable social and economic growth of African countries but also proposed possible ways to solve them. Representatives of the business and academic community expressed their readiness to work together with their African partners to solve common tasks.
