Chairperson of the Commission of the African Union visits South Africa

2 November 2017

The Chairperson of the Commission of the African Union, Moussa Faki Mahamat, embarked on an official visit to South Africa on 30 October 2017. During this visit, the Chairperson consulted with President Jacob Zuma, the Minister for International Relations and Cooperation, Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, and other senior Government officials.

The visit provided an opportunity to exchange views on a number of issues of mutual interest. Discussions focussed on efforts to address some of the conflict and crisis situations on the continent; as well as on economic integration and development and the related flagship projects of the First Ten Year Implementation Plan of Agenda 2063, including the Continental Free Trade Area, the establishment of the single air market in line with the Yamoussoukro Declaration and the operationalization of the Pan-African University Institute for Space Sciences.

Progress on the implementation of the African Union institutional reforms as agreed during the Addis Ababa Summit of January 2017 also featured in the consultations with the South African authorities.

The Chairperson of the Commission used the opportunity of his visit to meet with the heads of some of the South Africa-based African Union institutions: the Pan-African Parliament, the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) Planning and Coordinating Agency, the African Peer Review Mechanism, the African Commission of Nuclear Energy, the Pan-African University Institute for Space Sciences, the African Risk Capacity, the African Union Foundation and the Pan-African Women’s Organizations.
