PAP delegation arrive Kenya for AU Mid Year Coordination Meeting

A delegation of the Pan-African Parliament (PAP), led by its President, H.E. Hon. Chief Fortune Charumbira, has arrived in Nairobi, Kenya to participate in the Fifth Mid-Year Coordination Meeting (5th MYCM) of the African Union (AU), the Regional Economic Communities, the Regional Mechanisms and the African Union Member States on the 16th July 2023.

The meeting is convened under the AU theme of the year 2023 “Acceleration of African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Implementation” and will be preceded by the 43rd Ordinary Session of the Executive Council, scheduled to take place from the 13th to 14th of July 2023.

The Mid-Year Meeting is expected to consider the following, among other issues:

* Presentation and discussion on the status of continental integration in Africa in accordance with the Abuja treaty

* Presentation and discussion on the status of regional integration

* Presentation and discussion on the draft report of the AU institutional reform

* Presentation on the division of labour among Member States, RECs/RMs and AU

* Presentation of the 10-year implementation plan of Agenda 2063.

As part of preparatory engagements before the Meeting, the PAP President will join other Heads of AU Organs for a strategic review workshop of the African Governance Architecture (AGA) on the 12th.

As the operationalization of AGA passes the ten-year mark, the workshop is an opportune time to look back, take stock of the achievements and challenges that AGA has faced and draw lessons to inform and influence the work of AGA over the next ten years. Thus, the first statutory Meeting of the African Governance Platform, which was held alongside the 36th Ordinary Session of the AU Assembly held from 13-14 February 2023 in the AU HQ Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, decided to convene a Strategic Reflection for the Platform Members and stakeholders.
