Rabat – The African Union has announced the agenda for its 32nd ordinary summit, which will take place from January 15 to February 11 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The summit will take place under the theme “Refugees, Returnees and Internally Displaced Persons: Towards Durable Solutions to Forced Displacement in Africa.”
The agenda of the summit will include the 37th Ordinary Session of the Permanent Representatives’ Committee (PRC) January 15-16; the 34th Ordinary Session of the Executive Council February 7-8; and the 32nd Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the AU’s Heads of State and Government February 10-11.
Irregular migration has been the focus of the pan-African organization in recent years.
In 2017, King Mohammed VI addressed issues such as youth immigration in a message to the participants of the 29th AU summit.
“African population growth, African institutions, migration and youth issues are opportunities we should leverage together,” the King said.
The King renewed Morocco’s commitment to Africa’s development during the international conference of migration held in December 2018 in Marrakech.
The monarch said in his message to the symposium that Morocco’s efforts to tackle migration are “neither recent nor incidental.”
The King also emphasized Morocco’s “longstanding, voluntary commitment expressed through a policy which is humane in its philosophy, global in its substance, pragmatic in its methodology and responsible in its approach.”
