Dear colleague,
Africa Union-African Diaspora in Europe Regional Consultative Conference
(RCC)
On behalf of the Paris Embassy Organising Committee, I would like to extend our
sincerest appreciation to you and the colleagues in your Mission, for all your effort
towards ensuring the success of the African Union-African Diaspora in Europe
Regional Consultative Conference (RCC) held on 11 and 12 September 2007.
In particular, I would like to take this opportunity to extend my personal thanks to
you, fellow members of the Heads of Mission Co-ordinating Committee for leading
your Mission's unstinting commitment and active engagement in the Europe Diaspora
process. Your dedication, as reflected in every step of the process to date, reflects well
the theme of partnership that permeates the Diaspora process.
Following from the Diaspora RCCs held in Brazil for Latin America, in London, in
New York for North America and in the Bahamas for the Caribbean, the
representation from the African Diaspora community in Europe will now also add
their voice to the Ministerial process that shall culminate in the African Heads of State
and Government Summit in 2008.
I am sure you would agree with me when I say that the Europe RCC was a good
conference which has yielded an outcomes document articulating the Europe region's
particular characteristics and strengths, and one reflective of the objectives envisaged.
It is my pleasure to attach the following documents (in English and in French) for
your information and record:
