  • Description

    Ministers from forty-three African, Caribbean and Pacific nations met in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia's capital, on Wednesday (20 February) to discuss future possible links with the European Economic Community.

    Convened by the Organisation for African Unity and opened by Emperor Haile Selassie, the meeting focused on unity between the participants in the force of what they alleged were European efforts to divide them.

    Many of the countries are former colonies of the European powers and are seeking associate membership of the European body. The power of these former colonies has considerably increased recently with the world-wide shortage of raw materials.
