Yesterday in Addis Ababa, Foreign Minister Sven Mikser and the Commissioner for Infrastructure and Energy at the African Union Commission, Dr Amani Abou-Zeid, discussed the implementation of a Memorandum of Understanding on IT cooperation between Estonia and the African Union.

Mikser said that Estonia has recommended to develop a training module in e-governance at the Commission of the African Union, where decision makers from African countries could share best practices in e-governance and the opportunities offered by it.

“We hope that the corresponding offer will be adopted into the post-summit action plan of the African Union and the European Union," Mikser said.

Commissioner Abou Zeid also made a proposal for bilateral cooperation at the Smart Africa Summit of African IT leaders, whereas Mikser invited representatives of the African Union to attend an e-governance conference taking place in Tallinn in May.

The foreign minister's visit to Ethiopia continues on Thursday with various meetings and participation in the opening session of the meeting of African Union foreign ministers.
