He added that the summit allowed participants to discuss a number of important issues, including migration and Africa’s right to development, the eradication of structural poverty in developing countries, and the opening of markets to developing-country products.

At the summit the Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni unveiled her government’s plan to boost economic cooperation with Africa.
