COMMISSION ON AFRICA
REPORT BACK ON WORKSHOPS

You may recall I recently reported on my attending a workshop organised by the Commonwealth Business Council on behalf of The Commission for Africa, an independent international commission set up by the United Kingdom (Tony BLAIR) to take a fresh look at how the international community can do more to support Africa's development.

These workshops were held in South Africa; Cameroon; Ghana and Tanzania during November 2004 and the objective was:

To generate new ideas and action for a strong and prosperous Africa, using the 2005 British presidencies of the G8 and the European Union as a platform;
To support the best of existing work on Africa, in particular the New Partnership for African Development (NEPAD) and the African Union, and help ensure this work achieves its goals;
To help deliver implementation of existing international commitments towards Africa;
To offer a fresh and positive perspective for Africa and its diverse culture in the 21st century, which challenges unfair perceptions and helps deliver changes; and
To understand and help fulfill African aspirations for the future by listening to Africans.

I have just received the feedback and outcomes of these workshops and must commend Steve Godfrey, Managing Director Commonwealth Business Council Consulting and his team for these reports that truly outline the essence of Africa's current situation and what is now required.

These reports have been published on our website and make must-read material!
