ADDIS ABABA--The African Union (AU) today seeks to strengthen ties with Guyana, based on the joint history of the struggle against colonial domination and the commercial mechanisms of mutual interest that could be established.
According to a statement issued by the AU, the commission vice president, Kwesi Quartey, held a meeting with the Guyanese President David Granger in which they evaluated ways to consolidate the strategic partnership.
According to the statement, in this way, the community block also guarantees the strengthening of its relations with the Caribbean, with whom Georgetown has close ties, especially from the cultural point of view.
At the meeting, they also discussed the celebrations and plans for the commemoration of the 180th anniversary of the abolition of slavery, as well as the International Decade for People of African Descent.
Granger pointed out that his Government is committed not only to the full observance of the International Decade, but also wishes to develop plans for beyond that, which definitely rebound the ties that bind them to the so-called black continent.
