The Togolese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Cooperation and African Integration is organizing the second edition of the African Integration Week on 22 and 24 May. According to the head of Togolese diplomacy, Robert Dussey, this edition will be marked by a series of cultural events.
African integration is the free movement of goods and movements throughout the African continent. It requires above all political will, harmonization of policies, establishment of continental institutions and a unit of action.
For Professor Robert Dussey, African integration necessarily involves the promotion of peace, unity, solidarity, cohesion and cooperation between African States and their peoples.
It is to join the act to the word that the department in charge of African integration has organized since last year, the eponymous week. The event, which is a perpetual event, responds to the Togolese government’s commitment to grant foreigners living in Togo the full enjoyment of their rights to sub-regional and continental integration.
For this 2nd edition, the theme chosen is: youth and integration. Seminars, debates and a series of cultural events are planned. There will also be folk dances troops from different communities, and tasting of African food.
The communities of Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, Ghana, Benin, Gabon, Nigeria, Niger, Burkina Faso and Guinea, among others who live in Togo are expected this week. According to the program, the activities will take place at the Agora Senghor media library in Lomé and within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
