“37th AU Summit deeply resonates with our Peoples’ quest for progress and development” FM Taye Atske-Selassie


The Minister of Foreign Affairs, H.E. Taye Atske-Selassie Amde, this morning addressed opening session of the 44th Executive Council of the African Union.

In his remarks, the Minister stressed the crucial importance of this year’s AU Summit “Educate an African fit for the 21st Century.” He said, it profoundly resonates with the quest for progress and development of the African Peoples. The theme, Minister Taye noted, underscores the urgent need to build resilient education systems that provide increased access. He added, it also aspires to promote inclusivity, champion lifelong learning, and ensure quality education for all children in Africa.

Speaking of the special emphasis accorded to the key sector recently, he stated, over the last five years, the Government has prioritized investment to enhance quality education. Through our nation-wide school feeding programs, feeding over six million students daily, he added, we have ensured participation and witnessed the positive impact education can have on the lives of our people. Through a deliberate policy intervention, the Government increased the number of public boarding schools and remote learning centers, thereby enhancing inclusive and quality education the FM disclosed.

FM Taye also called upon the participants to support the proposition by Ethiopia for the inclusion of Amharic as the official language of the African Union. Realistically realizing this aspiration has the potential further empower indigenous African languages in the fruition of the Continent’s progress and would gradually honor Africa’s linguistic diversity and strengthen our collective identity as Africans, he stated.
