Africa shall be a strong, united, resilient, peaceful and influential global player and partner with a significant role in world affairs. We affirm the importance of African unity and solidarity in the face of continued external interference including, attempts to divide the continent and undue pressures and sanctions on some countries.
We aspire that by 2063, Africa shall be:
- A major social, political and economic force in the world, with her rightful
- share of the global commons (land, oceans and space);
- An active and equal participant in global affairs, multilateral institutions,
- and a driver for peaceful co-existence, tolerance and a sustainable and just
- world; and
- Fully capable and have the means to finance her development.
Africa will take her rightful place in the political, security, economic, and social systems of global governance towards the realization of its Renaissance, establishing Africa as a leading continent. We undertake to continue the global struggle against all forms of exploitation, racism and discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerances; to advance international cooperation that promotes and defends Africa’s interests, and is mutually beneficial and aligned to our Pan-Africanist vision; to continue to speak with one voice and act collectively to promote our common interests and positions in the international arena.
Africa shall continue to advocate for the reform of the United Nations and other international institutions, with particular reference to the UN Security Council, in order to correct the historical injustice of Africa not being represented on the Council by a permanent seat.
Africa is on an upward trend and seeks mutually beneficial relations and partnerships with other regions and continents. It, therefore, looks at the nature of partnerships with a view to rationalizing them and enhancing the benefits to its transformation and integration efforts. We shall do so by strengthening our common perspectives on partnerships and by speaking with one voice on priorities and views on global matters.
