AFRICA DAY CELEBRATION IN URUGUAY
 


The South African and Egyptian Embassies, being the two resident African Missions in Uruguay, co-hosted Africa Day in an historic venue in the Uruguayan Ministry of Foreign Affairs attended by about one hundred influential contacts over a broad spectrum of Uruguayan society. Among the guests were the Uruguayan Minister as well as Deputy Ministers of Foreign Affairs,  various Members of Parliament, twenty seven Foreign Ambassadors, senior government officials, representatives of international organizations, Afro-Uruguayans, organized business and the media. The visiting Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Venezuela, Ambassador Jacqueline Mendoza, a former Venezuelan Ambassador to Africa, also attended the event.
Brief statements were made by the Egyptian Ambassador, Mohamed Abou Eldahab, and Ambassador Dawie Jacobs, Charge D’Affaires, followed by the key-note speech of the Uruguayan Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr Luis Almagro, re-affirming the increasing importance attached by Uruguay to the African Continent and the intention to open a third Embassy on the Continent.
Various posters on South Africa and Africa were on display and URUKA (abbreviation for Uruguay-Africa) wines, produced by a South African wine maker married to a Uruguayan lady, was served to emphasize Africa-Uruguayan ties. Similarly a poster on the Africa-Uruguay Chamber of Commerce (CCUA) was displayed and board members of CCUA were in attendance.
The Foreign Ministry congratulated the two African Embassies with this successful event and the quantity and quality of attendance. They indicated that they would like to assist again with future Africa Day celebrations, since it is also in line with the focus of the Foreign Ministry.
The high level participation, including the speech of the Foreign Minister underlines the importance that Uruguay attaches to Africa. The co-hosting by the two African Embassies conveyed a positive message of unity and naturally made the event more cost-effective. The venue was also conveying a positive message of the positive attitude of the Foreign Ministry towards Africa. Prominent and positive media coverage carried the message further afield.
