European Commission met its African ‘sister’

European Commission President José Manuel Barroso and six of his colleagues held a two-day meeting with the African Union Commission between 25 and 25 April  in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Barroso was accompanied by Commissioner: Andris Piebalgs (for Development), Karel De Gucht (trade), Kristalina Georgieva (International cooperation, humanitarian aid and crisis response), Connie Hedegaard (climate action), Dacian Cioloş (agricultural and rural development), and Algirdas Šemeta (taxation and customs Union, audit and anti-fraud).
The meeting is the 6th annual College-to-College session with the African Union, which an EU official described as the EU Commission “sister organisation” in Africa.

The meeting took place during the 50th anniversary of the Organisation of African Unity, the predecessor to today's African Union, and was meant to help prepare the Fourth Africa-EU Summit, due to take place in Brussels in April 2014.
