AU and Croatia to strengthen cooperation towards achieving Agenda 2063 aspirations

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 16th July 2015: The African Union Commission Deputy Chairperson, H.E Erastus Mwencha has met today with a high delegation from the Republic of Croatia led by the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign and European Affairs, H.E Dr. Vesna Pusic. The meeting aimed at exploring possible sectors of cooperation between African Union and Croatia.

H.E Erastus Mwencha welcomed the delegation and commended the increasing interest of the Republic of Croatia in closer cooperation with Africa. The Deputy Chairperson recalled the spirit of sharing and collaboration that Africa had once had with Croatia, formerly part of Yogoslavia, through the non-alignment movement. He also took advantage of the visit to introduce Agenda 2063, the new Pan-African development framework for the next 50 years. Moreover, the Deputy Chairperson pointed out the fact that the cooperation with Croatia could be a window of opportunity for the structural transformation of the African economies.

H.E Dr. Vesna Pusic expressed the commitment of Croatia to strengthen cooperation ties with Africa. She highlighted the readiness of Croatia to share its know-how and experience in different sectors in order to support Africa in its development process. “Even though Croatia is a small country, there is a possibility to share our development experience with other regions in the world”, she said.

During the exchange of views, the two parties identified priorities areas for cooperation including women empowerment, post conflict reconstruction, engine industry, tourism, education, and agriculture, among others.

African Union and Croatia have committed in the months ahead to sign a memorandum of understanding as entry point of a fruitful cooperation.
