The New Africa Union Commission Chairperson, Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, Scheduled to Visit Atlanta
September 12-15, 2013, will not only mark the fifth visit of the powerful delegation of African Union top Executives and Chairperson, but will also coincide with the African Union's 50th Anniversary as well as the 50th Anniversary of the historic March on Washington, a moment immortalized by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s 'I Have a Dream' speech. Not least of all, it will also coincide with Africa Day celebration and the inauguration of the city of Atlanta and the state of Georgia as the epicenter and the destination of the 55 nations of Africa business potentials and opportunities to USA pioneered and founded by the Africa Heritage Foundation, which is heralded by the Atlanta City Council, Georgia State Senate, the Office of Governor Nathan Deal of Georgia, Africa Union Commission, the United Nations , the Martin Luther King Center, Southern Polytechnic State University, Morehouse College, the CDC, the Secretary of State's office, the World Affairs Council of Atlanta , the 100 Black Men of America, Inc., and Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
The new Chairperson, Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, is the first woman chairperson of the African Union, and acts as a single voice for the AU. Her visit in September follows the legislation of the SR9 Resolution which specifically designates Georgia as the international gateway for the exchange of knowledge and commerce between the United States of America , Africa and the Diaspora. This powerful new legislation opens a promising pathway of commerce for not only Georgia, but the United States as a whole, and is in lieu with Governor Nathan Deal's commendation of Africa Day, in which he cites the primary objectives of Africa Day being '[the development] of international trade, supporting emergence of Africa's private sector and promoting the beneficial relationship between African nations and the United States'.
The SR9 resolution is the culmination of the African Horizon Movement which began in 1996 with the Olympics in Atlanta, and signifies the Africa Heritage Foundation's dynamic work toward the celebration and unification of people of African descentindigenous, intimate , and distantacross the Diaspora.
The Chairperson seeks to address all the nations of the world simultaneously. National leaders, CEOs of Fortune 500s, the Africa Business Round Table, the United Nations, and major associated press, whom all have a vested stake in the future of the world's economy and direction, are invited to hear the message of the AU, "Africa is the future. Africa matters." Committed to mutualistic business opportunities, this four day event will provide crucial information about Africa's development and future, while simultaneously seeking to establish partnerships for the development of Africa and the bridging of international gaps between Africa, the Americas and the Diaspora.
"Africa is open for business," the CEO of the Africa Heritage Foundation, Ambassador Tunde, proudly declares. "This is larger than Georgia. This is larger than the United States. This is larger than Africa. This is about bringing the world together for sustainable development and divine economic undertaking. This is a new legacy of mankind."
The Press Director of the White House expresses the desire to make the African Union 'the face of Africa'. President Obama, recently awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Law from the University Johannesburg, was asked, "What will be your legacy?" His answer was, "Africa will be my legacy." Citing Nelson Mandela as his hero, this recent honor symbolizes not only the President's stake in Africa, but interwoven future of the United States and Africa. "The destiny of Africa and America is tied together," once stated Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma.
The recent investment of China into the African Union with the construction of the African Union Conference Center has set the tone for foreign interest in emerging African development. With maturing and continued ventures from the States, the facilitation of a lasting relationship with Africa will generate job opportunities and incalculable growth. The strategic use of resources, wisdom in communication and coordination, and the invaluable capital of trust and dignity will set the pace for the growth between Africa and the States for years to come, if not, the pace of growth in the world.
"Africa is the continent of possibilities and has re-emerged as the new frontier and the antidote to the global economy," says Ambassador Tunde Adetunji. "Vision is greater than ambition."
