  • Description

    THE SIXTH SUMMIT CONFERENCE OF THE AFRO-MALAGASY-MAURITIUS ORGANISATION (OCAMM) ENDED ON FRIDAY IN YAOUNDE. AFTER TWO DAYS OF CLOSED SESSIONS. AT THE CONCLUSION, A DECISION WAS MADE TO HOLD THE NEXT OCAMM AT FORT LAMY, CHAD, IN JANUARY 1971.

    ONE OF THE LAST DECISIONS OF THE CONFERENCE WAS TO CHANGE THE ORGANISATIONS'S NAME FROM THE AFRO-MALAGASY COMMON ORGANISATION (OCAM) TO ITS PRESENT TITLE. THIS FOLLOWS THE ADMISSION LAST YEAR OF MAURITIUS, A FORMER BRITISH COLONY IN THE INDIAN OCEAN, AS THE 15TH MEMBER OF THE CLUB WITH 13 FRENCH-SPEAKING AFRICAN COUNTRIES AND MADAGASCAR.

    THE SUMMIT FOLLOWED A WEEK-LONG MINISTERIAL COUNCIL BY DELEGATES WHO DISCUSSED POLITICAL, ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL MATTERS.

    CREATION OF A MEAT MARKETING BOARD WAS DISCUSSED, AND THE CONFERENCE ASKED PRESIDENT HAMANI DIORI OF NIGER TO CALL A MEETING TO RE-EXAMINE WAYS AND MEANS OF PUTTING THE PLAN INTO EFFECT.

    THE CONFERENCE ALSO ADOPTED A PLAN FOR A COMMON ACCOUNTING SYSTEM FOR MEMBER COUNTRIES, AND CUSTOMS AND FISCAL ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE MULTI-NATIONAL AIR AFRIQUE AIRLINE, TO COME INTO EFFECT ON FEBRUARY 1.
