Africa/South America Summit to Advance South-South Cooperation

By: Odeen Ishmael

The leaders of South America will meet with their African counterparts at their first summit on November 30-December 1 in Abuja, Nigeria. If all the 54 African and the 12 South American leaders attend this historic event, it will be one of the largest gatherings of world leaders at any single two-day event. 

For this summit, preparatory meetings of coordinators from the two groupings have already taken place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in September and in Santiago, Chile, earlier this month. A final meeting will take place in Abuja a few days before the summit.

Formally established in 2004, the South American Community of Nations (SACN) has taken the lead in promoting dialogue with other developing regions, and last year it started this process by organising the first South America-Arab League summit in Brasilia. Mechanisms are already in place to carry out follow-up strategies on an action plan developed by that forum.
