The Africa APPG exists to facilitate mutually beneficial relationships between Africa and the UK and works to further understanding within UK parliament of contemporary African and Pan-African matters. Through its enquiries, meetings, public events and reports, the group critically engages with a wide range of topics and ideas in the political and policy space. The APPG prioritises engaging with African voices, diaspora and interests to promote African-led development agendas. And with a membership of over 200 parliamentarians from across-parties and houses, it is one of the largest and most active APPGs in UK parliament.
Current thematic focuses of the group set at the last AGM on 15th October 2019 include:
- Visa problems for African Vistors to the UK (Following up on our 2019 inquiry and report)
- UK-Africa trade relations and Brexit (Following up on our February 2017 report available here).
- Investment to support trade within Africa and Africa's green industrialisation
- Partnerhsips for mental health provision in Africa
