”We will continue to promote Africa’s interests together and work together to address issues and challenges common to us.

”Africa’s development and growth should be the centrepiece of our relations and we must promote this across every spectrum of our relations, from the economy to trade, from the social sector to the political and cultural sectors,” the President said.
