The discussion focused on the international issues and the cooperation between the International Organisation of la Francophone (OIF), the European Union (EU), African Union (AU) and the State Groups ACP.  

Georges Chikoti is a candidate - on behalf of Southern Africa - for the position of the General Secretary of ACP Group.

The pre-application was held on 12 September during the 10th Ministerial Meeting of the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC), held in Gaborone, Botswana.

ACP is an association of 79 African, Caribbean and Pacific countries, tasked with coordinating the activities at Loma Convention (Togo) dated 1975, and then replaced on 22 June 2000 by the Cotonou Agreement (Benin).

All countries of the region are signatories, with the exception of Cuba.

The Cotonou Agreement regulates ACP-EU relation until 2020.

It gathers more than 100 States, including 28 from EU and 79 ACP.

Currently, with 57 member State and 20 observers, the OIF is an international organisation comprising French speaking countries or a privileged status.

Angola’s former Foreign Affairs minister, Georges Rebelo Pinto Chikoti, was appointed Angolan ambassador to Belgium in February, 2018.
