Togo to host 9th pan-African congress of Lomé next year

(Togo First) - Togo will organize the 9th pan-African congress of Lomé in 2024. Though the exact date is still unknown, its theme is: "Renewal of Pan-Africanism and Africa's place in global governance: mobilizing resources and reinventing ourselves for action." 

Robert Dussey, the Togolese minister of foreign affairs made the announcement last week, after a forum that he co-chaired in Morocco. 

The upcoming pan-African conference will take place in the framework of the African roots decade. The latter is a Togolese initiative with 15 member countries at the moment. Its goal is to make members of the African diaspora key actors in the continent’s development. 

According to the Togolese government, the conference will be “a privileged opportunity for Africans living on the continent and outside it (the diaspora and Afro-descendants) to question themselves about their human, political, cultural, social and societal future, in an increasingly unstable world, lacking collective responsibility and collective governance involving Africa.” 

"African countries will have to think about how to invent a form of human association, political organization, and new visions to define what they want and can do for themselves and by themselves alongside other major players in the global economy and the international political scene," the same source added.
