  • Description

    THE PRIME MINISTER OF CONGO BRAZZAVILLE, COMMANDANT ALFRED RAOUL, RETURNED HOME YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) AFTER A THREE DAY CONFERENCE WITH PRESIDENT BONG OF GABON AND PRESIDENT AHIDJO OF THE CAMEROUN.

    THE THREE LEADERS MET IN YAOUNDE TO REVIEW THE WORK OF THE CENTRAL AFRICAN ECONOMIC AND TARIFF UNION (UDEAC), OF WHICH COMMANDANT RAOUL IS ACTING CHAIRMAN.

    THE MEETING WAS THE SECOND OF ITS TYPE BETWEEN THE THREE LEADERS IN RECENT MONTH, AND WAS A CURTAIN RAISER TO A LARGER MEETING OF THE UNION TO BE HELD IN BRAZZAVILLE NEXT MONTH.

    AT THE END OF THE THREE-DAY MEETING THE CONGOLESE LEADER OUTLINED THE IMPORTANCE OF UDEAC TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF CENTRAL AFRICA, AND THE ROLE THE ORGANISATION HAD TO PLAY IN THE PEACE AND PROGRESS OF CENTRAL AFRICA.

    HE DISMISSED SUGGESTIONS THAT THE UNION WOULD NOT FULFIL ITS FUNCTIONS AS PESSIMISTIC.

    IT WAS DECIDED AT THE YAOUNDE MEETING THAT A REVIEW SHOULD BE MADE OF THE STRUCTURE OF UDEAC, TO ENABLE THE ORGANISATION TO PURSUE ITS WORK OF INCREASING COOPERATION AMONG AFRICAN STATES.
