“The presence in this first edition of our Forum of representatives from so many African countries is the recent expression of our common belonging to the great African family.

It reflects our commitment to our natural, geographic and political roots,” Ms. Mbarka Bouaida told attendees and the press.

Mr. Mohamed Faouzi completed this statement by saying that: “The objective of this Forum is to achieve a vision that can define a framework for African citizens; a framework that meets the needs of people, without compromising the needs of future generations; a framework that allows regional officials to build Africa by and for Africans.” Mr. Abdennabi Bioui, President of the Eastern Region, recalled that “the idea of ​​creating the Forum of African Regions was born here, in our region, our land.

This land connects the present with the past and anticipates the future in a spirit that understands that the goals of liberation from colonialism are the same as the goals of sustainable development, considering that in the end, in both cases, the goal is to achieve Africa’s development.

Mr. Jean Pierre Elong Mbassi, Secretary General of UCLG Africa, underlined that he hoped that “through the discussions and deliberations that will take place during these two days, we can realize how much we can and must do to change the face of our continent, beginning to sow the seeds that will make the Africa of the Peoples emerge beyond the Africa of the National States, which is the Africa that we want.” The program of the day included the following sessions: Panel 1: Regional Governments and Institutional Environment Panel 2: Regional Governments, climate change and resilience Panel 3: Regional Governments and Territorial Competitiveness Panel 4: Regional Governments and the year of human and financial resources challenges Panel 5: Regional Governments and Open Government Panel 6: Regional Governments and African Integration During the second day, on September 9, 2022, the Forum will focus on the discussion of the FORAF roadmap and the election of the heads of FORAF.
