Joint Statement on the occasion of the Africa Day 2010

For many countries in Africa, 2010 marks an important anniversary, as independence swept across the continent fifty years ago. And today, Africa Day, marks the founding of the Organisation of African Unity in 1963. This was the first step towards the African Union which we know today - 53 countries bound by one Union, encompassing the diversity and dynamism of the modern Africa. For the European Union, Africa Day is also a chance to look forward. In particular, we look forward to building on the successes of the first ever Joint EU-Africa Strategy adopted two and a half years ago. This is taking relations between the two continents beyond traditional development to forge a genuine partnership of equals. It goes beyond Institutions, to emphasise the people to people links. And it has opened the way for Europe and Africa to look beyond their own borders to work together in tackling the global challenges such as climate change.
