Meeting on the AGI with the African Union Commission
29 Dec 2006

UNDESA held a meeting with officials of the Directorate of Political Affairs of the African Union Commission (AUC) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on 13 December 2006. This was possible thanks to the facilitation of the Office of the Minister of Public Service and Administration of the Government of South Africa. The AGI Project Manager, together with AGI focal points of Benin, Congo-Brazzaville, Ethiopia, Ghana, South Africa, Tanzania, Togo and Uganda, briefed the AUC on the AGI evolution and its achievements to date. The AGI focal points stressed the benefits of the system which could be of immense use for the governance work of the AUC. The latter, acknowledging the complementarities of the AGI objectives with the AU Governance and Public Administration agenda and programmes, suggested that the meeting be followed by formal communication exploring modalities of partnership with the AUC on the initiative.
