Ambassadors of African diplomatic missions in Kuwait organized an African Day celebration at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on 30 October. Assistant Foreign Minister for African Affairs, Ambassador Hamad Al-Mashaan was the chief guest at the function. In his address, Ambassador AlMashaan emphasized the depth of historical relations between Kuwait and African countries, and expressed the interest of Kuwait to preserve and enhance these relations. He also stressed Kuwait’s keenness to ensure security and stability in Africa through Kuwait’s non-permanent membership in the United Nations Security Council for the year 2018/2019.
 
He noted that the significance of the partnership was in part because Africa is regarded as a major pivot for investment due to the opportunities available in the country, and added that Kuwait’s presence was represented in the implementation of developmental projects via its public and private sectors in Africa.
 
On his part, acting Dean of Diplomatic Corps in Kuwait and Ambassador of Botswana H.E. Ambassador Manyepedza P. Lesetedi lauded the African Day celebration for providing a unique opportunity for the African embassies to play a role in promoting and marketing available opportunities in the continent, and deepen the friendly and cooperation-based relations shared with Kuwait. An exhibition showcased the multifaceted beauty of various African countries, with a focus on culture, heritage and handicrafts.
 
‘Africa Day’ marks the establishment of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) on 25 May 1963, and celebrates the unity, culture, achievements, and progress of African nations. Today, Africa Day is celebrated in various countries on the African continent, as well as by the African diaspora.
