Madbouly heads to Addis Ababa to partake in 11th AU Extraordinary Session

Published in Daily News Egypt on 18 - 11 - 2018

Egypt's Prime Minister, Mostafa Madbouly, arrived in Addis Ababa on Saturday to participate in the 11th Extraordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Union (AU) on 17-18 November.
The session will address the status of the AU's institutional and financial reform progress. It will also review reports on the amendment of the AU Commission and other bodies.
Madbouly attended the session on behalf of President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi.
Egyptian Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, travelled last week to Ethiopia to participate in the AU Executive Council meeting in preparation for the 11th Extraordinary Session, and held bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the AU meeting.
Before the Executive Council, Shoukry asserted the significance of promoting the concurrence of views among African countries, and maintaining unity to achieve the AU political, economic, and developmental goals.
Around 45 African leaders will participate in the 11th AU session. They will address reforming the AU Commission in order to meet the demands of the AU's 55 member states.
The leaders will also discuss the status of implementing the AU Agenda 2063, which will acts “a strategic framework for the socio-economic transformation of the continent over the next 50 years," according to the AU official website.
The AU Agenda 2063 aims at “an integrated, prosperous, and peaceful Africa, led by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the international arena."
In January, Egypt was elected by African leaders to chair the AU 31st session in 2019. The African leaders voted for Cairo during an AU session in Addis Ababa.
