Eight heads of state of the OEACP have already confirmed their presence at the Luanda summit

At least eight heads of state and government of the Organization of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OEACP) have already confirmed their presence at the 10th Summit in Luanda, whose works started this Tuesday, announced the Government.


The information was transmitted by the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Domingos Vieira Lopes, noting that the 79 member countries of the OEACP confirmed their presence at this summit taking place in the capital.

"We already have confirmation from eight heads of state, prime ministers, deputy prime ministers and foreign affairs ministers who, in some cases, will participate on behalf of their respective countries", said the Angolan official.

Speaking at a press conference at the Aníbal de Melo Press Centre, in Luanda, where the situation regarding the organization of the event was presented, Vieira Lopes said that other important personalities will also participate in this meeting.

"The OEACP also invited important personalities who will participate in high-level meetings such as the African Development Bank [AfDB], the United Nations and the Commonwealth", he pointed out.

The 10th OEACP Summit will take place between the 6th and 10th of December in Luanda.

This Tuesday began the preparatory work, which extends until Thursday, with a meeting of the Council of Ministers of the organization, and the meeting of the Heads of State and Government takes place on Friday.

Angola will assume the presidency of this organisation, which brings together countries from Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific, for the next three years.

The coordinator of the summit's organizing committee and Angolan Foreign Minister, Téte António, noted, on the occasion, that the summit also brings together thematic forums, namely on business, youth, women and the diaspora.

"Economic and Social Impact of Road Accidents - The Role of Youth" will be the theme of the OEACP youth forum as explained by Téte António, noting that the resolutions of the forums will be submitted at the meeting of Heads of State and Government.

Around 100 businessmen from OEACP member countries will participate in the business forum, financed by the World Bank, which will take place under the motto "Promoting the Competitiveness of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises of the OEACP in the World Market".

"Three Continents, Three Oceans, a Common Destiny: Let's build a Resilient and Sustainable OEACP" is the motto of this 10th Summit, centered on the sustainable development of Member States.

Asked by Lusa about Angola's financial expenses to host the summit, Téte António replied that the authorities "have not yet taken stock" of the aggregate expenses for the event.

"But we also need to look further, by hosting a meeting we bring to our country people who perhaps many of them have never been to Africa, so not only is it a good way for us to get to know Angola, but the arrival of many delegates has an impact in our lives, in the businesses that are generated", he maintained.

The meeting in Luanda will produce a final declaration, the minister also pointed out.
