  • Description

    A new Joint African and Malagasy Organisation (OCAM) city has been built in Bangui, capital of the Central African Republic, and is ready to receive representatives to the 1974 OCAM Summit Conference opening later this month.

    At a conference of OCAM Heads of State held in Port-Louis, capital of Mauritius a year ago, Central African Republic Head of State, General Jean-Bedel Bokassa, suggested Bangul as the Summit venue, and his offer was accepted. Since then there have been intensive preparations for the conference in Bangui. OCAM President -- Senegalese President Leopold Senghor -- came to inspect their progress in February.

    OCAM was formed as a political and economic unit of French-speaking African states in 1965. It has thirteen member states.
