Introduction to the Inaugural AEP

One of the lessons learnt after the celebrations of the 50th Anniversary of the OAU/ AU was that Africa has to take charge of its development if it is to meet the expectation of ever becoming “An integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the global arena.” The continent needs to set its agenda and take responsibility for its development, to find African solutions to our challenges and mobilise domestic and other resources for its needs, based on a set of ideals and priorities that reflect the values and aspirations of Africans.
