Cape Town - The 4th EU-Africa Summit opened in Brussels on Wednesday with the president of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy saying Europe needed Africa's help in many areas, according to an Africa Review report.

"Make no mistake, there are things on which Europe needs Africa's help", Van Rompuy said, mentioning the tackling of climate change, managing of migration and security on both continents as some of the issues of concern.

The summit, running under the theme; "Investing in people, prosperity and peace", opened with calls for peace, prosperity and more trade.

The summit brings together 40 African and 20 European heads of state and government with an aim of deepening cooperation between the two continents.

Some of the African leaders at the summit are AU Commission boss Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, presidents Hellen Sirleaf-Johnson of Liberia, Paul Kagame of Rwanda, Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, Jakaya Kikwete of Tanzania, Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria and Paul Biya of Cameroon and King Mswati of Swaziland.
