EC president welcomes the first chairwoman of the AUC

The President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, welcomed  Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, a South African politician and former anti-apartheid activist, following her appointment as Chairwoman of the African Union Commission (AUC).
He took the opportunity to delve into the EU-Africa Strategic Partnership and said that it is “a partnership of equals, [ which ] has grown ever stronger across a wide range of areas such as Peace and Security, Democracy and Human Rights, Trade and Infrastructure, Climate Change and Environment, and economic and social development”.
European Commission President stressed he “looks forward to further reinforcing our partnership with the African Union Commission” under the leadership of Dlamini-Zuma. Barroso also had some pleasant words for the former AUC Chairman, Dr Jean Ping, in view of his “outstanding work in taking the AU forward over the past four years”.
