  • Angolan President, João Lourenço
Luanda - The Angolan Head of State, João Lourenço, reaffirmed Angola's commitment to the Agenda 2063, of the African Union (AU), whose focus is on sustainable development, social cohesion and peace for the continent.

Speaking at the II Aswan Forum for Peace and Sustainable Development in Africa, an initiative of the Egyptian Government, President João Lourenço underlined the importance of this Agenda for the continent.

 

At the meeting, which took place by videoconference, the Angolan statesman recalled that Agenda 2063 aims to stimulate African solutions to African problems, in search of the “Africa we want”, as stated in the Charter of the African Union.

 

João Lourenço, who participated in the Forum, as a guest of the President of the Arab Republic of Egypt, Abdel Fattah AlSisi, recalled that, in recent years, Angola has developed inclusive mechanisms to strengthen national cohesion.

 

He said that these mechanisms take shape with the involvement of all in the process of building a sustainable and lasting peace, capable of bringing positive economic and social impacts on the lives of citizens.

 

He informed that Angola is carrying out actions aimed at sustainable promotion, socio-economic development and policies that have allowed the economic and social inclusion of the most vulnerable families.

 

At the Forum, the Angolan statesman encouraged the joint efforts of African leaders in the search for regional peace and security, which are priority factors in each country's agenda.

 

He recalled that, in this area, Angola has been developing specific actions in order to guarantee its effective implementation through dialogue between the countries of the sub-region.

 

Regarding the II edition of the “Luanda Biennial-PanAfrican Forum for the Culture of Peace”, held in Angola in 2019, he considered it to be a clear affirmation of the confidence of the States in building new ways to materialize the culture of peace in the continent.

 

To the Angolan statesman, the engagement of political players and of African civil society is extremely important, in the total understanding of the challenges, in order to transform the improvement of development indicators into effective actions, for the well-being of African communities.

 

The event, a wide-scale reflection on what to do in the post-covid period in African societies, took place under the motto “Shaping Africa's new normal: recovering stronger, rebuilding better”.
