African Union Summit: accelerated economic integration tops Nigeria’s agenda

As the continent prepares for the January 2013 summit of the African Union, Nigeria’s main agenda is to canvass for an accelerated economic integration among all member states of the AU Commission. The summit, which will hold at the AU headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, is scheduled for January 21st – 28th, 2013. The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Olugbenga Ashiru, said although the framework to promote intra- African trade already exists, the implementation is very slow. The theme of the summit is “Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance”.
