Tewolde GebreMariam, Ethiopian Airlines CEO (far left), celebrates another achievement.

New Perishable Cargo Facility

ethiopianairlines.com

This March, Ethiopian Airlines inaugurated a state-of-the-art cold-storage facility to meet the growing demand for perishable exports such as flowers, vegetables, herbs, fruits and meat. The new warehouse, built in line with the highest international standards, covers a total area of 3,700 square meters (12,139 square feet), with capacity to accommodate four aircrafts' cargo loads at one time. The adjacent building houses customs, security and quarantine facilities so that all necessary cargo services can be accommodated in one place. “The new perishable cargo warehouse and our new fleet of B777 freighters have special cooling capabilities and temperature control,” reports CEO Tewolde GebreMariam, “enabling our exports to reach their destinations while maintaining their quality and freshness. “In line with our Vision 2025 and our national obligation to support Ethiopian export growth, we have already placed orders for four B777 freighters and are finalizing preparations to build one of the biggest cargo terminals in the world, serving both dry and perishable cargo, with an annual capacity of 1.2 million tons.” Ethiopian, the largest cargo operator in Africa, currently operates six dedicated freighter aircraft to 24 cargo destinations in Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Asia. It is the first airline in Africa to operate the B777 freighter, with its extended range, efficiency and cooling capability. By 2025, Ethiopian Cargo plans to uplift 820,000 tons of cargo using 15 dedicated freighters.

Approved for Greater Maintenance and Overhaul Capability

selamta

noteworthy

Ethiopian Airlines’ Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul center recently received two pivotal approvals from the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration. “With these new approvals,” says Tewolde GebreMariam, CEO of Ethiopian, “Ethiopian MRO will now confidently market its services to sister airlines in the region.” Bombardier Q-Series In January 2013, Ethiopian Airlines received approval to provide full airframe maintenance for all of the Bombardier Q-Series turboprop airplanes, which are widely used by regional operators on the continent and across the Middle East. Ethiopian Airlines' MRO center was granted the approval due to its investment in facility expansion, equipment, personnel training and approved maintenance data. This is on top of the airline’s maintenance capacity for other aircraft, including Boeing 777, 767, 757, 737NGs, 737 Classic and MD-11 model aircraft.

The Little Engineer

CFM56-3 & CFM56-7 Engines In February 2013, Ethiopian Airlines’ MRO became an approved overhaul center for two engine types: CFM56-3 and CFM56. These are the sole engine models that power the Boeing 737 Classics and the Boeing 737 New Generation airplanes, both widely used in Africa and the Middle East. Ethiopian MRO already has full maintenance capability for both aircraft models. The addition of overhaul capability provides airline operators with a convenient one-stop shop to service their Boeing 737 fleet. Ethiopian invested close to US$21 million to develop the engine overhaul capacity, in collaboration with GE Aviation.

Last March, Ethiopian Airlines partnered with Airbus to host workshops for close to 100 students from schools in Addis Ababa. The workshops were conducted by The Little Engineer, an organization dedicated to instilling an appreciation of science and technology among today’s youth. These workshops took place at Ethiopian Airlines’ Aviation Academy. “We are proud to have joined efforts with Airbus,” says Tewolde GebreMariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, “so as to acquaint and inspire young Ethiopian students to join our technology-driven industry. “As the fastest-growing African airline, Ethiopian Airlines attaches great importance to the nurturing of young talents. In line with our Vision 2025, we aim to train and avail enough skilled aviation professionals to not only satisfy our growing needs but also cater for the demand throughout Africa.” “With its forward-thinking approach,” says Alan Pardoe, head of marketing communications for Airbus, “Ethiopian Airlines has a lot to offer the future of travel and to help in shaping it. We are very excited that Addis Ababa is one of our first destinations to conduct The Little Engineer workshops.” Airbus has formed a regional partnership with TLE as a result of ongoing efforts to inspire and instill a passion for science and technology at an early age. It aims through this partnership to engage with more than 500 students in Africa and the Middle East in 2013. The Little Engineer workshops were part of the 50th-anniversary celebrations of the Elysée Treaty by the Embassies of French Republic and Federal Republic of Germany in Addis Ababa.

New Services to Blantyre and Ndola Ethiopian Airlines commenced flights to Blantyre, Malawi, and Ndola, Zambia, on March 31, 2013. Both cities are second destinations for Ethiopian in their respective countries, in line with the airline’s goal of adding multiple destinations to better serve the continent. Ethiopian is flying three weekly flights to each of these destinations using its Boeing 737 aircraft.

Around Addis

African Union Landmarks Around the city In addition to hosting the AU’s headquarters, Addis Ababa is also home to several other sites that are significant to the history of the African Union and its predecessor, the Organisation of African Unity.

David johnson / addis life

Africa Hall This auditorium is the centerpiece of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa complex, located on Menelik II Avenue. The building, which opened its doors in 1961, has hosted numerous important Pan-African gatherings, including the 1963 Conference of Independent African Heads of State and Government that led to the creation of the charter of the Organisation of African Unity.

Around Addis

Kwame Nkrumah Statue

The new headquarters building of the African Union, inaugurated in January 2012, features a large bronze statue of Ghana’s first president, Kwame Nkrumah, in its entryway. Nkrumah is remembered, along with Ethiopia’s last emperor, Haile Selassie, as the guiding force and spirit behind the Pan-African movement that led to the creation of the AU's predecessor, the Organisation of African Unity. The statue is accompanied by a plaque with the famous quotation: “Ethiopia shall stretch forth her hands unto God, Africa must unite.”

ethiopia hotel

Located on a palm-lined street across the road from the National Theatre, Ethiopia Hotel is one of Addis Ababa’s longest-serving international hotels. The building was completed in 1963, just in time to host the delegates who came to Addis Ababa for the OAU’s founding. Today, the hotel still serves many international guests with its 110 rooms, restaurant, bar and the remodeled Terrace Lounge. africa park

Just across the road from Africa Hall sits Africa Park, a green space of 45,703 square meters (more than 11 acres) that was created to commemorate the OAU’s establishment. The park features trees that were planted in 1963 by the OAU’s founding fathers, as well as a more recent group of trees planted after the OAU transitioned to become the African Union in 2003. ras hotel

ras hotel africa hall

In the heart of Addis Ababa's old downtown on Churchill Avenue, Ras Hotel has played an important role in the city's history. The building hosted numerous Pan-African leaders during the early days of the OAU. Most famously, Ras Hotel was the Addis Ababa base for Nelson Mandela when he stayed in Ethiopia during the struggle against apartheid in South Africa.

High Tea in Burundi

If it’s a high-quality cup of tea you’re after, Burundi’s a hot source. In 2012, the country saw a record dry tea production of 9.1 tons with a sales increase of 34 percent. The Burundi Tea Board credits last year’s success to sufficient yearly rainfall and a brief dry season, updated machinery, and motivated growers from rural villages with newly expanded nurseries. Private investors and an increased farming footprint are expected to help Burundi remain one of the top-ranking tea producers in Africa. 14

Ocean Oil Surge

Recent drilling roughly 195 kilometers (120 miles) off Ghana’s coast revealed a commercially viable oil source, says Italian energy company Eni. Initial estimates predict approximately 450 million barrels, with up to 150 million barrels of recoverable material. The discovery could push Ghana further into the arena as a regional energy provider, following the country's first oil shipments from its offshore Jubilee field in 2012.

Kenya's Silicon Valley

In January, Kenya officially entered the first construction phase for Konza Technology City, 64 kilometers (about 40 miles) south of Nairobi. Plans for the city — aimed to establish Kenya as a hub for technology innovation — include a business and science park, a financial district, international schools, residential housing, and even a championship golf course, resulting in an estimated 20,000 new jobs by 2014.

Diplomacy + Development

In an unprecedented effort to track with the global automotive market, South Africa’s Department of Environmental Affairs is announcing the introduction of zero-emission electric vehicles — DEA Green Cars. The cars are fully solar-powered, using high-tech panels that generate enough energy to source some of the country’s national power grid. An outcome of the United Nations' 17th Conference of the Parties, the initiative represents South Africa’s latest move toward going green.

A little help getting started

Three African startups have received a sizable business boost, thanks to the 2012 Apps4Africa competition. Chosen from more than 300 applications, the winners include SliceBiz (Ghana), offering a web and mobile investment platform providing alternative funding for startups; Prowork (Nigeria), which creates mobile project management and collaborative business solutions; and Ffene (Uganda), which helps smaller businesses streamline their accounting, customer relations and product management. Each received $10,000, with the possibility for top-up funds if they meet set targets.

Closing the Gender Gap The next class of African women scientists chosen for the prestigious AWARD (African Women in Agricultural Research and Development) Fellowship will soon begin a two-year careerdevelopment program, empowering women to help close the agricultural gender gap. Representing 11 countries and more than 20 agricultural disciplines, the 70 recipients were chosen based on intellectual merit, leadership strength and the potential for their work to improve the livelihoods of African smallholding farmers. The fellows' research will span everything from plant breeding to climate change.

Durban, South Africa, will host the 19th World Transplant Games, where qualifying athletes of all ages who have received life-saving organ transplants will compete in 13 different sports. While you’re in the area, take a day trip to the Zulu Cultural Village or the Tala Game Reserve.

Founded by locals to celebrate these hairy desert giants, the International Camel Derby rounds up riders from across the globe to compete in two races through Maralal, Kenya. A novice race allows entrants to hire both a camel and a handler and sit back for the 10-kilometer (6.2-mile) jaunt, while the 42-kilometer PRO Elite race tests advanced riders as they tackle the desert solo. Visitors can also simply hire a camel for the day, or enjoy cycling races, donkey rides or dance performances.

50 Years Uniting Africa Celebrating the African Union.

M

ay 25, 2013, marks the 50th anniversary of the signing of the charter establishing the Organisation of African Unity, now the African Union. On this date, African leaders, personalities and representatives of the African people will convene in Addis Ababa to celebrate this historic Golden Jubilee. Ethiopian Airlines is, first and foremost, a Pan-African airline that has, for almost seven decades, been bringing Africa together and closer to the world. Our main hub, Addis Ababa, as the seat of the AU, is also the political capital of Africa. It is only natural that we dedicate the May-June issue of our in-flight magazine to the achievements of the OAU/AU in forging unity and solidarity, and in enabling the renaissance of our great continent. In this special edition, you will find stories on the OAU/AU through the voices of great leaders and personalities, past and present, talking about the beginning of African unity and their vision of a rising Africa on the global stage. We will also give you glimpses of the Ethiopian Airlines story, inextricably bound to Africa and our continental organization. Ethiopian is more than an airline to Africa. We have built the largest and one of the most efficient passenger and cargo networks inside Africa, connecting the continent with the rest of the world. Mobility and air connectivity are critically essential engines for the economic and social transformation of our continent. Africa is the next and perhaps the last frontier in globalization, and Ethiopian will continue to contribute its share in making Africa more accessible, more competitive and more successful in its economic and human-development initiatives, thereby improving the lives of its people. We wish a happy 50th anniversary to the OAU/AU. Thank you for choosing to fly with us and enjoy your flight.

L

e 25 mai 2013 est la date du cinquantenaire de la signature de la charte fondatrice de l’Organisation de l’Unité africaine (OUA), actuellement l’Union africaine (UA). En ce jour, les Chefs d’Etats africains ainsi que les personnalités et repr��sentants du continent se sont donnés rendez-vous à Addis Abéba pour célébrer cet anniversaire historique. Ethiopian est avant tout une compagnie aérienne panafricaine qui, pendant près de sept décennies, a œuvré pour l’intégration du continent et son rapprochement avec le reste du monde. Notre hub principal, Addis Abéba, est aussi le siège de l’UA et la capitale politique de l’Afrique. C’est donc tout naturellement que nous dédions l’édition de mai/juin de notre magazine de bord aux réalisations marquantes de l’OUA/UA pour l’unité, la solidarité et la renaissance de notre grand continent. Dans cette édition spéciale, vous trouverez l’histoire de l’OUA/UA racontée à travers différentes voix, Chefs d’Etats et personnalités africains (anciens et actuels), qui relatent le début de l’unité africaine et leur vision d’une Afrique montante qui prend sa juste place sur la scène internationale.  Nous allons également jeter un regard sur l’histoire d’Ethiopian Airlines qui est inextricablement liée à celle de l’Afrique et de notre organisation continentale Ethiopian est plus qu’une compagnie aérienne pour l’Afrique avec son réseau de voyageurs et de cargo le plus large et le plus efficace du continent, reliant l’Afrique avec le reste du monde. La mobilité et la connectivité aériennes sont essentielles pour la transformation économique et sociale de notre continent. L’Afrique est la prochaine, sans doute, la dernière frontière dans le processus de mondialisation. Ethiopian continuera à œuvrer pour assurer l’accessibilité et la compétitivité de l’Afrique ainsi que le succès de ses initiatives de développement économique et humain visant à améliorer le niveau de vie de ses populations.  Nous souhaitons un joyeux cinquantenaire à l’OUA/UA et à tous les africains.  Merci d’avoir choisi de voyager avec nous et bon vol.

s we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of our continental organization, it gives me great pleasure to share a few thoughts with our African brothers and sisters all over the continent and beyond. It is indeed fitting that we are celebrating the Golden Jubilee of our premier continental organization under the theme Pan Africanism and African Renaissance. Looking back at the distance Africa has traveled since those heady days of May 1963, it is indeed a source of enormous pride and achievement that the vision of our Founding Fathers for a continent free of colonialism and apartheid was realized by the OAU. At the time the Founding Fathers of our organization signed the charter of the OAU, their optimism was boundless. However, like all human endeavors, their vision may have been frustrated by a host of obstacles. As a result, it should come as no surprise that the objectives they set are by no means fully met. Nevertheless, what kept the spirit of the Founding Fathers afloat was nothing other than the conviction that the African dawn was indeed heralded in earnest. Indeed, the African dream of renaissance is beginning to come true. The OAU, having discharged its mandate, has now transformed itself into the African Union to realize the vision of our Founding Fathers with a view to better respond to the challenges facing our continent in this era of globalization. It is a source of satisfaction that today Africa has begun to give home-grown solutions to its myriad of problems and enjoy relative peace and stability as well as better political and socioeconomic governance. Africa has also charted its own path of development through the New Partnership for Africa’s Development. With the impressive growth that has now come to characterize the great majority of African economies, it is obvious that Africa has


indeed turned a corner. There is impressive change everywhere. This has made Africa an attractive destination for business and investment. Nothing could symbolize Africa’s progress toward its renaissance more than Addis Ababa and, of course, our national carrier, Ethiopian Airlines. As you can see from the all-too-obvious infrastructural expansion in every corner of Addis Ababa, the proud capital of the African Union, the whole country is being built from the ground up over the past two decades. Addis Ababa today is a far cry from the narrow roads on which limousines used to shuttle the Founding Fathers from the airport to their hotels. Speaking of such a change, Bole International airport, which is one of the largest airports in Africa, and Africa Avenue — the main thoroughfare between the airport and downtown Addis Ababa — spring to mind. The DC-3 aircrafts of the 1950s and ’60s have now given way to state-of-the-art flying machines such as the most recent Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Ethiopian flies to almost all African capitals and boasts more destinations inside and outside of Africa than any other airline on the continent. It remains truly African in everything it does and does so proudly. Ethiopian flies to so many destinations from and to Africa and it is as committed to linking Africa together as ever.

Moreover, Ethiopia’s unflinching commitment to PanAfricanism and African Renaissance is also as solid as ever. All the way from Emperor Haile Selassie’s Pan-African crusades of the 1960s through to Prime Minister Meles Zenawi’s globetrotting championing of Africa’s causes — are all testimony to Ethiopia’s enduring commitment to Africa’s renaissance. Looking back to the last 50 years, amid so many false starts and frustrating turns, there is a whole lot more to feel good about. After decades of political and economic experimentation that went wrong, Africa is finally getting it right — and the best is yet to come. Our voices are being heard louder and clearer thanks to our unity. There is every reason to believe that this century is indeed ours. But there is no room for complacency. What is needed is more hard work and single-mindedness of purpose on the part of all of us. Finally, I would like to call on my fellow Africans who are joining us for the celebrations to once again renew our commitment to a better, united and prosperous Africa. With passion and unity, our renaissance is around the corner. Come enjoy the truly African celebrations and see for yourselves how real our commitment is. Welcome to the capital of the African Union, your home away from home!

his year, 2013, has been themed the Year of Pan Africanism and the African Renaissance. It is also the year that our continent celebrates and commemorates 50 years of the establishment of the Organisation of African Unity. On May 25, 2013, we expect that thousands of people will descend on Addis Ababa, the seat of the African Union. These people will join hands with millions on the continent and throughout the world to recall the giant steps taken by the OAU founders and Pan Africanists. A key objective of the 1963 meeting of the Heads of State and Government, among others, was to provide institutional expression to continental unity. The commemorative events this year will therefore offer us an opportunity to: • Reflect on the past 50 years, highlight key lessons and acknowledge the contributions of founders of the OAU and Pan Africanism in all countries, regions and the Diaspora, linking the past, present and future. • Take stock of Africa today, its assets, capabilities, opportunities and challenges. • Establish a precise agenda and work plan for achieving the vision of “an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and taking its place in the global arena” in the 21st century (Agenda 2063) and mobilize the broadest strata of the African population in support of this vision. • Promote and define the Pan-African values that will underpin the African agenda over the next five decades, so as to inspire new generations of Pan-Africanists. In reflecting on this milestone, we will take into cognizance that our actions have been preceded by centuries of resistance and activism. These localized and continentwide battles found renewed expression through the Pan-African Movement, which was most famously promoted by the likes of W.E.B. Du Bois, Marcus Garvey, Katherine Dunham and many Africans in the Diaspora.

According to the International Air Transport Association, Africa will record the strongest passenger growth, with 6.8 percent compound annual growth rate by 2016. The movement was inspired by our African culture and continental resistance movements. The mutually beneficial relationship between the movement and the continent would in turn inspire the likes of Nkwame Nkrumah and many others to pursue institutional expression toward shepherding the ultimate goal of a united Africa — which is prosperous and at peace with itself, whilst taking its rightful place amongst the nations of the world. The commemoration of the 50 years of the OAU/AU also comes after a decade of the formation of the African Union. The AU was built upon the solid foundation of the OAU so as to consolidate actions toward the promotion of “an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in global arena.” Consequently, the year also offers us an opportunity to take stock on how far we have traversed in our programs directed at meeting this vision. Consequently, we will host thematic discussions and convene several forums throughout the year, so that we may elaborate on the various continental priority areas. These events and forums will not only be convened by the African Union and its organs. Already, member states, civil society, the private sector, academia and the diaspora have begun to convene such interactions. We take this opportunity to encourage all state and non-state actors to utilize their national days and other major events to commemorate the OAU/AU 50th anniversary. One of the priority areas we have identified is intra-African trade and tourism and free movement of persons and goods, so as to ensure that our citizens have a realistic opportunity to reach all the corners of our continent. Ethiopian Airlines, a member of the Star Alliance and many other airline groups, has begun playing significant roles in ensuring greater access and intra-continental travel. According to the International Air Transport Association, Africa will record the strongest passenger growth, with 6.8 percent compound annual growth rate by 2016. International cargo demand will also rise by 4 percent. The ease of the movement of persons and goods are important elements in facilitating continental solidarity, unity and prosperity. We must therefore ensure that we all participate in the exchange of ideas offered by the 50th anniversary toward ensuring that we create and contribute to the Africa we want to see for our children’s children. We will therefore engage with all sectors of the society toward articulating the road map for Agenda 2063, which should secure a united, prosperous and peaceful Africa. God bless Africa!

history in the making The Organisation of African Unity / African Union.

O

n May 25, 1963, the Organisation of African Unity was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, bringing together under one umbrella the then32 independent African nations. The OAU arose as an affront to colonialism and in response to questions about Africa’s role on the world stage in the 20th century. Fifty years later, the OAU’s successor, the African Union, has become one of the world’s leading institutions dedicated to cooperation and economic integration between nations, and the premier international body concerned with PanAfrican affairs. In this special issue of Selamta, we look back at the unique history of this organization and its contributions to the nations and people of Africa.

Part one: birth The decades leading up to the formation of the OAU were simmering with agitation and expectation across the African continent, as an increasing number of nations became free from European colonialism. The 1945 Pan-African Congress, held in Manchester, England, brought together activists from the African Diaspora in the United States, Europe and the Caribbean with leaders of the various nationalist movements on the African continent. The outcome of this assembly — whose secretary and chairman were Kwame Nkrumah and W.E.B. Du Bois, respectively — was an unambiguous call for Africa to be completely freed of colonial rule. Twelve years later, Ghana became the first British colony to gain independence, and in 1958 Nkrumah hosted an assembly of the eight independent African countries in Accra. In the aftermath of the Accra meeting, colonialism began to rapidly recede across the continent, with more than a dozen former French colonies gaining independence in 1960 alone. Within a few years, the majority of Africa was made up of independent states — a total of 32 nations by the end of 1962.

In the excitement of this dawning post-colonial era, several different views developed within Pan-African diplomatic circles about how these new sovereignties should relate to one another and the rest of the world, and at what pace unity should be manifested. The two main camps, alliances of different African governments, were known as the Casablanca Group and the Monrovia Group. The Ethiopian government played a crucial role in mediating and bringing together the two sides. Largely through the efforts of the Ethiopian government, the leaders of all independent African nations were convinced to attend a summit in Addis in May 1963. The goal of this assembly was made clear in the opening speech by Ethiopia’s Emperor Haile Selassie: We cannot leave here without having created a single African organisation possessed of the attributes we have described. If we fail in this, we will have shirked our responsibility to Africa and to the peoples we lead. If we succeed, then, and only then, will we have justified our presence here. Other leaders in attendance expressed a similar sense of urgency, with Kwame Nkrumah famously declaring, “We must unite now or perish.” The assembly of independent African states agreed to quickly establish a unifying Pan-African institution. After extensive deliberations, the Conference of Independent African Heads of State and Government in Addis Ababa ended successfully with the signing of an official charter establishing the Organisation of African Unity. After the signing of the charter, the meeting hall was filled with the “euphoria of Pan-Africanism.”

Part two: development The OAU charter was just the beginning. After the signing of the charter, Kifle Wodajo — then a young Ethiopian diplomat — was appointed acting secretary-general. At subsequent meetings, it was decided that the OAU would be headquartered in Addis Ababa and that Diallo Telli, then Guinea’s ambassador to the U.N., would become the OAU’s first secretary-general in 1964.

On May 25, 1963, delegations from 32 independent African nations gathered in Addis Ababa for the historical launch of the Organisation of African Unity.

The decades leading up to the formation of the OAU were simmering with agitation and expectation across the African continent.

Once its administrative framework was in place, the OAU launched into an agenda of promoting Pan-African cooperation and working to end colonialism and minority rule. The OAU also served as a forum for mediation and the resolution of intra-state conflicts. A range of important Pan-African conventions, treaties and charters were adopted during the OAU’s first three decades, covering issues ranging from civil aviation and environmental conservation to culture and technical cooperation. Some significant initiatives undertaken by the OAU during this period include the 1981 African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights and Africa’s Priority Programme for Economic Recovery, which addressed the severe challenges faced by many African countries during the 1980s. In 1990, the issue of economic integration came to the fore with the signing of the Abuja Treaty, outlining a multiphase plan by which a unified African Economic Community could be created. The 1990s also saw the OAU adopt strong stands in regard to the foreign debt burdens shouldered by African countries. Since its inception, the OAU was at the forefront and worked vigorously for the abolishment of the apartheid system in South Africa, and in 1994, South Africa finally joined the family of independent African states as the 53rd member of the OAU.

Part three: renewal At the dawn of the 21st century, African governments engaged in a series of conversations about better empowering the OAU to address the challenges facing the continent. This culminated with a 2000 summit in Lomé, Togo, where the African Union was created to replace the OAU. The African Union’s first official assembly took place two years later in Durban, South Africa. The transition from the OAU to the African Union represented much more than a simple name change. The African Union was established with a more complex organizational structure and a broader mandate for a peaceful and prosperous Africa. The AU is governed by a higher body called the Assembly, composed of the heads of state and government of the member nations, which in turn is served by the Executive Council, composed of foreign ministers. The African Union Commission — the Addis Ababa-based secretariat of the Union — conducts day-to-day operations. The AU is also served by several councils and technical committees, each specializing in a particular area of Pan-African policy or economic activity. The AU set up a robust peace and security architecture, including the Peace and Security Council, aimed at taking African ownership and leadership of the resolution of conflicts on the continent. This proved to be a success, with the declining of conflicts in Africa. The other major act of the newly formed AU was the launch of a Pan-African economic-development program: the New Partnership for Africa’s Development. NEPAD provides a strategic framework for African states in pursuing sustainable socio-economic development, African integration and increased international trade, in the context of democratic good governance. Under the leadership of the late prime minister of Ethiopia, Meles Zenawi, who also served as chairperson of the NEPAD Orientation Committee, NEPAD became the main instrument for advocating Africa’s position and interests on the global stage, including the G-8 and G-20 summits. This was followed by the establishment of the African Peer Review Mechanism, a system by which African governments hold themselves accountable to high standards of governance. In 2012, the gleaming new African Union Conference Center and Office Complex1 was inaugurated in Addis Ababa, serving as a visual representation of the AU’s future ambitions and the rise of Africa. That year also saw the election of the first female chairperson of the AU Commission, Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma of South Africa. As the world increasingly looks to Africa as a source of economic opportunity, the African Union stands poised to help an emerging continent achieve its potential. 1 Read more about the African Union’s new administrative headquarters in Selamta’s online edition (selamtamagazine.com/stories/africas-diplomatic-center-attention).

celebrating from the skies Ethiopian Airlines congratulates the African Union.

Selamta magazine spoke with Tewolde GebreMariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, about the AU’s 50th anniversary and the Pan-African vision that the two organizations share. As CEO of one of Africa’s oldest airlines, what perspective do you have on the African Union’s 50 years promoting Pan-African cooperation? The Organisation of African Unity/African Union has brought the ideals of PanAfricanism to bear fruit and has played a major role in fostering unity and solidarity. Although our continent has gone through some difficult times during the last half century, the OAU/AU has laid the foundation for the promise of a continent that is taking off today, just like the Asian tigers in the 1980s and ’90s. All the work that has been done by our continental organization is the cornerstone of the African renaissance we are witnessing now. As an indigenous and truly African airline, we at Ethiopian are uniquely privileged to have been part of the Pan-African cooperation and integration process. With its original motto, “Bringing Africa together and closer to the world,” Ethiopian has advanced the objectives of the OAU/AU since the beginning: serving as a presidential airline during the post-colonial era; providing critical air connectivity to many African countries when foreign airlines did not even have Africa on their maps; availing aviation training to African countries; providing aircraft maintenance services at preferential rates to African airlines; and promoting Africa as a tourism and investment destination of choice to the outside world. When the OAU/AU outlined the objectives of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development in 2001, and the continent began preparing itself to actively participate in the global competitive stage, we came up with our new motto: “The New Spirit of Africa.” This motto is very telling of our dedication to realize the new Africa as the next and perhaps last frontier of globalization.

How will the airline commemorate the AU’s 50th anniversary? We have planned a yearlong commemoration, promoting the AU and the continent through various outlets in our African destinations. Many plans are being put in motion, such as putting the colors of the AU in one of our aircraft; preparing a short, in-flight documentary on the partnership between Ethiopian Airlines and the OAU/ AU; and sponsoring events in connection with the OAU/AU golden jubilee celebrations. Our goal is to remember the past and celebrate the African renaissance. Ethiopian Airlines is currently following an ambitious strategic plan, titled Vision 2025. How will this plan intersect with the future work of the AU and similar institutions that are promoting the development of the continent? Our Vision 2025 will see the airline become the leading aviation group in Africa by 2025, with US$10 billion in annual revenue, operating more than 120 aircraft, and transporting 18 million passengers and 820,000 tons of cargo. By 2025, we will have multiple hubs in all the regions of Africa, connecting the continent to the world. As the AU and similar institutions continue to work on integration of the continent, Ethiopian is well-positioned as the flagship carrier of Africa, providing all facets of aviation services. We are continually enhancing our services to better serve Africa and become the airline of choice for our customers, who will be traveling to and from, as well as within, this great continent. What is your vision for the role that the African aviation sector can play in Africa’s future? As mobility and air connectivity are critical and major drivers of economic development, African airlines have a crucial role in the growth of the continent. With more than a billion people (and mostly a young population); a land mass larger than China, India, Europe, the United States and Mexico put together; 60 percent of the global uncultivated arable land, rich in natural resources; and good governance, peace and democracy, the continent is seeing phenomenal economic growth and human development. My vision is that at least 50 percent of travel to and from Africa will be served by indigenous African airlines. At present, all African airlines combined have a meager 18 percent share. This must change. Africans must benefit from their economic development and develop indigenous industries that compete on the global stage. I also wish to see the continent coming together to forge a common aviation policy and framework, bringing about a mutually beneficial operating environment for African airlines, which will make them globally competitive. Through such collaboration, African airlines will be well-equipped to serve the huge growth in passenger and cargo traffic resulting from increased tourism, trade and investment in the continent. We, at Ethiopian, are certainly working hard to serve the huge air transportation need that is expected from the economic growth of the continent. That is why we are implementing our 15-year strategic roadmap, Vision 2025, with the future growth of Africa in mind. Our fleet modernization and expansion, aviation infrastructure development, human resource development, and the introduction of the latest information and communication technology are all geared toward serving the air travel needs of this great continent.

The Organisation of African Unity/ African Union has brought the ideals of PanAfricanism to bear fruit and has played a major role in fostering unity and solidarity.

past, present, future Ethiopian Airlines: A symbol of Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance. The half-century of the African Union’s success has significant ties to the success of Ethiopia and its national carrier, Ethiopian Airlines — established almost two decades earlier. Take a look at the airline’s remarkable story:

Past It was 1945 and most of Africa was colonized. That year, Ethiopia established an airline in a joint venture with Trans World Airlines. It was a bold, albeit humble, beginning that would change the aviation industry in Africa. On April 8, 1946, Ethiopian Airlines made its maiden flight to Cairo in one of its five Douglas C-47s. This ushered in an era of prominence: an African airline with weekly services to destinations in Africa and beyond. Before 1946, passengers had to transit through countries outside of Africa in order to reach their destinations within the continent. With its motto of “Bringing Africa Together,” Ethiopian Airlines eased travel within Africa while also marking major milestones in the continent’s aviation industry. —continued on page 44

Ethiopian Airlines eased travel within Africa while also marking major milestones in the continent’s aviation industry.

—continued from page 42 Although many routes in Africa back then were very thin, with passenger numbers not justifying service, Ethiopian stuck to its operations. Along the way, the green, yellow and red livery of Ethiopian across African skies came to symbolize an independent Africa. Ethiopian soon became the sole operator to other African countries as they broke free from the yoke of colonialism. To this day, many of the celebrations of Ethiopian inaugural flights to African destinations coincide with the years those countries gained their independence. In the early 1960s, a wave of Pan-Africanism was spreading across the continent. Along with it came the idea of establishing a continental body that would serve as the instrument of change and the voice of a united Africa. It was aboard Ethiopian Airlines that the founding fathers of the Organisation of African Unity traveled across the continent to negotiate its vision and birth. Then came the realization of a dream: In May 1963, leaders of 32 African nations gathered in Addis Ababa to sign the charter establishing the OAU and to herald a new chapter in the unity and solidarity of Africa. It was also on Ethiopian Airlines that many of the leaders traveled to Addis for this historic event. Making history had already become commonplace for Ethiopian. Just a few years before the signing of the charter, Ethiopian became the only airline to operate eastwest services across the continent, truly bringing Africa together. In 1962, a new airport and tower were built to accommodate the growing fleet and destinations. Soon after, and a few months before the establishment of the OAU, Ethiopian again made history by introducing the continent’s first jet aircraft: the Boeing 720. While Ethiopian operations in Africa grew, there was a shortage of skilled Africans in the aviation sector. Realizing that a true African airline should be managed by Africans, Ethiopian Airlines started to train Ethiopian professionals to take complete management of the airline, with the first Ethiopian CEO coming to the helm in 1971. Trained Ethiopians began taking over the various operations, providing an eyeopening experience for many passengers—even Nelson Mandela, who wrote in his autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom, about his surprise upon encountering a black pilot during a 1962 flight to Ethiopia. Although the Ethiopian Aviation Academy first provided training only for Ethiopian pilots, aviation technicians and cabin crew, it eventually opened its doors for trainees from other African countries. Soon, a third of its intake capacity was utilized to train professionals from the rest of the continent and later from Middle Eastern countries. As the Ethiopian fleet grew, the need also grew for a technical facility where maintenance and repair could be done in-house. Backed by skilled professionals from its —continued on page 47

ethiopian airlines timeline

In 1945, Ethiopian set out on a remarkable path of history that would take it from being a continental airline with five military aircraft to a leading international carrier flying one of the most advanced fleets in the skies today. Begin here to trace the evolutionary milestones that have marked that path throughout the past 68 years.

—continued from page 44 own training academy, Ethiopian launched Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul services and soon began offering these MRO services to other airlines as well. Meanwhile, Addis Ababa was fast solidifying its position as the continent’s political and diplomatic capital. The airline began serving as the presidential airline for many African nations, carrying heads of state to OAU assemblies. As other African nations started establishing their own airlines, Ethiopian assisted technically or offered advice in developing the necessary human resources. In 1968, Ethiopian spearheaded the formation of the African Airlines Association — a platform for establishing best practices. At the same time, Ethiopian was expanding in other ways. In 1973, the airline became the fourth in the world to fly to China. And in 1984, Ethiopian became the first airline in Africa and second in the world to operate the Boeing 767. It landed at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport after a 13½-hour delivery flight from New York — setting a new world-distance record for a commercial twin-engine jet. This introduction of jet service in Africa and acquisition of the first 767 would become the hallmarks of Ethiopian Airlines’ appetite for innovation and technology. By 1996, as it celebrated 50 years of operations, Ethiopian had established itself as a truly African airline, renowned for its operational excellence and safety record. The goal of bringing Africa together was being achieved, and no destination seemed out of reach as Ethiopian spread its wings. Two years after celebrating half a century of flight, Ethiopian became a crossAtlantic airline as well, with service to Washington and New York — once more increasing tourist flow to the continent, especially to East Africa. Ethiopian Airlines had established itself as adept in all facets of aviation services — with its cargo business catering to the growing demand for transportation of goods, and its aviation academy and MRO business endowed with state-of-the art technology, both in infrastructure and services. All these proved instrumental in realizing the OAU’s own founding tenets of political and economic integration. Ethiopian provided a convenient and smooth means for bringing people, goods and services of the continent closer together. This was true even when some African countries were embroiled in conflicts. Ethiopian was the last airline to stop operations in these countries, long after many had pulled out. Even then, Ethiopian service to some of these countries continued in a different form: It was aboard Ethiopian that many of the peacekeeping forces were deployed to conflict areas in Africa. At the same time, Ethiopian was an ambassador for Africa, promoting the various economic, cultural and tourism opportunities wherever its airplanes flew. This inflight magazine, Selamta, was a constant source of information and promotion, highlighting destinations and attractions of the continent.

The existing airfield at Lidetta, built in 1936, is not suitable for jet operation. A decision is made to construct a new airport at Bole (which opens in 1962).

The Ethiopian Airlines engine test cell is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, to ensure top engine performance.

In 2005, Ethiopian ordered 10 Boeing 787 Dreamliners while the aircraft was still on the drawing board.

Present The turn of this century saw the global prominence of Africa and its renaissance taking root. In 2002, the OAU restructured as the African Union, setting goals and visions for the continent of the 21st century. Africa was rising and the world noticed. It was also an era of technological boom, and Ethiopian followed suit. By 2005, Ethiopian became one of the few airlines in the world to order 10 Boeing 787 Dreamliners while the aircraft was still on the drawing board. By then, Ethiopian’s fleet was more and more composed of the most modern aircraft being operated. As the continent grew, Ethiopian stepped up to the challenge, crafting visions and goals for the long term, consistent with the vision of the AU. After fulfilling its initial motto of bringing Africa together, Ethiopian was ready for a new one. Initially setting a five-year plan — Vision 2010 — Ethiopian chose “The New Spirit of Africa” as its motto for serving the Africa of tomorrow. True to form and its history, Ethiopian far surpassed the goals set in Vision 2010. By 2010, it was time for a yet bigger vision of this continent and its airline. Hence, Vision 2025: a 15-year strategic road map. In the meantime, Ethiopian continued to excel, marking its seemingly never-ending milestones. The airline became the first on the continent to introduce the ultra longhaul and wide-body aircraft: the Boeing 777-200LR. This enabled Ethiopian to serve the ever-increasing number of African passengers that resulted from a booming continent. Africa’s growth also demanded a sophisticated level of operations. Ethiopian set up a second hub in Lome, Togo — establishing a community airline called ASKY with a 40-percent paid-up capital and full strategic management to cater to West Africa. This was the birth of the multi-hubbing concept, which further enhanced Ethiopian operations in Africa. ASKY is not only serving passengers in West Africa but also feeding passengers to Ethiopian through its main hub in Addis for long-haul, trans-Atlantic routes. By 2011, Ethiopian had expanded its reach by becoming a member of the Star Alliance, the world’s biggest and most prestigious airline alliance. Passengers on Ethiopian now have access to 1,293 airports in 193 countries. Ethiopian is truly a global airline. In August 2012, Ethiopian took the world by storm by introducing the first Dreamliner in use in Africa and the third in the world. Those who had not noticed Ethiopian before now did so, as the airline delivered the ultimate travel experience aboard the most technologically advanced passenger aircraft in the world. However, the airline's achievements did not stop there. Ethiopian Cargo, the biggest African freight operator, was about to see the addition of a technological marvel as well. Soon after taking delivery of the Dreamliner, Ethiopian introduced Africa to the first ultra-modern and long-haul cargo freighter: Boeing 777-200LR. —continued on page 51

—continued from page 48 With six dedicated freighters — two of them B777Fs — Ethiopian Cargo now caters to the growing market for imports and exports of Africa in 25 destinations, with Liege, Belgium, as its second cargo hub. On the domestic and regional front, Ethiopian garnered another world’s first — this time as the first to operate the Bombardier Q-400 with business and economy classes. Technicians at Ethiopian were highly involved in reconfiguration of this aircraft, which initially had a single cabin. Not only that, but the airline’s MRO is an approved maintenance and overhaul facility for all of the aircraft it flies. This is remarkable, because most other African airlines outsource their MRO services. With such capabilities, Ethiopian Airline’s passenger service now caters to 80 destinations worldwide — 55 of them in Africa — with a unique in-flight service that conveys the flavor of the continent. In 2012, Ethiopian spanned its intercontinental reach by launching Africa’s first scheduled nonstop flight to Canada. These and other achievements have made Ethiopian a multi-award-winning airline unparalleled in operational excellence and profit. Despite operating in an aviation industry that has seen reduced returns because of high and volatile fuel prices, weak demand and geopolitical unrest, Ethiopian has proven to have mastered a recipe for success. With an average growth of 25-30 percent over the past seven years, Ethiopian is now the fastest-growing airline in Africa and is solidifying its position as the flagship carrier of Africa.

Future Ethiopian is betting on Africa for its future, as can clearly be seen in the goals and dreams of Vision 2025. With the continent’s increasing prominence, Africa’s population is fast demanding the most efficient and convenient means of transportation. With its growing and young population of 1 billion people — more than one-seventh of the world — Africa is becoming the destination of choice for investment and tourism. As air travel is one of the drivers of economic growth, Ethiopian has positioned itself as the airline that can cater to the growing demands of aviation services in Africa. In an industry in which it is difficult to plan for even one year, Ethiopian is implementing a 15-year strategic roadmap. Already in the third year of its Vision 2025, Ethiopian is laying the foundation to become the leading aviation group in Africa. For example, Ethiopian has carved its various aviation services into seven profit centers: domestic and regional passenger services, international passenger services, cargo, maintenance/repair, flight training, in-flight catering, and ground services. These profit centers will also eventually see half their income coming from thirdparty clients, many of them African airlines.

Ethiopian Airlines is clearly the flagship carrier best positioned to lead the continent into this time of renaissance, bringing Africa to the world and the world to Africa.

Central to these goals is the geographical location of Ethiopian’s main hub, Addis Ababa. The city is situated at the intersection of the fastest-growing trade lanes between Africa and the countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China. Ethiopian is also establishing additional hubs in central and southern Africa as a way to provide smoother and hassle-free connections both within the continent and beyond. These are being complemented with continued fleet modernization, state-ofthe-art technology, facility expansion and modernization, and an increased investment in the development of human capital. For example, Ethiopian will soon become the first airline in Africa to own and operate the Airbus 350-900, with an order of 14 scheduled for delivery starting in 2016. To maintain and continue its fast growth and profitability, Ethiopian is also undertaking massive expansion projects: Cargo The new cargo warehouse, with a capacity of 1.2 million tons per year for both perishable and dry cargo, will be the biggest in Africa. Its capacity for perishable cargo alone is slated to be one of the biggest in the world. MRO As part of its increased Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul services, a fourth modern hangar will accommodate the world’s largest commercial aircraft. Training Ethiopian has invested US$42 million in the expansion of its Aviation Academy. When completed, the academy intake capacity will increase fourfold from current capacity to 4,000. By then, half of the trainees will be from other African countries. By 2025, Ethiopian plans to fly 18 million passengers, uplift 820,000 tons of cargo, and serve 121 destinations using a mix of the youngest and most modern fleet. Success in these plans will see Ethiopian generating US$10 billion in revenue and close to US$1 billion in profit. Indeed, Ethiopian Airlines is betting on Africa, as it has done since its inception, and it is betting big. This Pan-African airline is clearly the flagship carrier best positioned to lead the continent into this time of renaissance, bringing Africa to the world and the world to Africa.

“At Ethiopia’s historic Africa Hall, the founders of the OAU envisioned a continent that would be better for their children and their children’s children. The AU must now accelerate the fulfillment of that vision by shaping the continent’s growth path for the betterment of its people. The world may have its own particular interest in a rising Africa, but the growth that must matter for Africans is one that is primarily anchored on their interests and concerns. “Together, we are committed to turning that vision into reality.

“The quest for liberty, self-determination, freedom and independence is inherent in all human beings. During the colonial era in Africa, the people in different parts of the continent rose against colonialism and foreign domination. “The independence of Ghana in 1957 served as an inspiration to many freedom fighters that victory was achievable no matter how long the struggle. I was privileged to attend the independence celebrations of Ghana with other freedom fighters from various parts of Africa. We were inspired by the founding president of Ghana, His Excellency Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, when he proclaimed that “the independence of Ghana was meaningless until the entire continent was liberated. “As the freedom struggle intensified in different parts of Africa, we realized the need to coordinate our efforts. Thus, after intense consultations among the leaders of the then-independent African countries and various liberation movements, the Organisation of African Unity was established. “Now, with political independence having been achieved, Africa needs to take deliberate efforts to achieve economic and social development. I sincerely believe that the continent has a chance to attain a higher standard of living in years ahead for the benefit of our succeeding generations.”

“I am indeed very happy to celebrate more than half a century of my own diplomatic service together with the 50th anniversary of the founding of the OAU. I was a young diplomat when the OAU was established. As such I had the privilege to witness the first Conference of Independent African Heads of State and Government, held in Addis Ababa in May 1963, and the signing of the OAU charter by the 32 founding fathers. “I still have vivid memories of the euphoria and optimism about Africa’s rejuvenation through the unity and solidarity of its people. Our founding fathers have bequeathed to us a continent that is liberated from the shackles of colonialism and apartheid. Now that the decolonization process is long over, I believe that the task of the new generation of Africans is to work toward the realization of the founding fathers’ vision — that of creating a peaceful, prosperous and united Africa.”

“Le Cinquantenaire de l’OUA est une occasion privilégiée pour faire un bilan exhaustif du chemin parcouru, de la contribution que l’Organisation a apporté au niveau du continent et des peuples africains, de sa reconnaissance et de son appropriation de plus en plus réaffirmées aussi bien au sein du continent et à l’extérieur, les défis traversés et ceux auxquels elle fait encore face, ses atouts majeurs ainsi que les perspectives d’avenir. En effet, le 21eme siècle sera africain si nous savons tirer parti de toutes nos potentialités. “Cette étape historique doit être aussi une occasion pour reconnaître les contributions inestimables des éminents penseurs et dirigeants panafricains depuis le début du 20ème siècle jusqu’aux indépendances des pays africains au cours de la deuxième moitié de ce siècle et de leur détermination de créer une Organisation panafricaine qui puisse porter haut les couleurs de l’Afrique et ses valeurs d’unité, de solidarité et de défense des intérêts communs au profit des peuples africains dans leur quête légitime de dignité, de développement intégral et de gestion démocratique de leurs propres affaires. “La transformation de l’OUA en Union africaine à travers l’adoption de l’Acte constitutif à Lomé en juillet 2000, a constitué un saut qualitatif vers une plus grande intégration continentale et la définition et la consolidation des valeurs partagées dont la promotion de la gouvernance démocratique, le règlement pacifique des conflits internes, la lutte contre les changements anticonstitutionnels de gouvernement, la solidarité avec les groupes défavorisés, la promotion de la culture et des valeurs positives de la société africaine, la défense des intérêts communs de l’Afrique sur la scène internationale. —continued on next page

Toutefois, les défis pour profiter de toutes ses potentialités restent énormes. “Pour cela, l’Afrique, consciente de ses avantages comparatifs, doit définir une vision stratégique pour les 50 prochaines années afin de traduire ses potentialités dans un meilleur bien-être de ses populations dans tous les domaines de l’activité humaine. “Que vive l’Union africaine et que notre Union puisse réaliser sa Vision d’ une Afrique unie, intégrée, prospère, en paix avec elle-même, conduite par ses propres citoyens et jouant un rôle dynamique sur la scène internationale.”

Dr. Jean Ping Former Chairperson of the African Union Commission, 2004-2005

The Embassy of Italy in Ethiopia, Luigi Varnero constructions PLC, Ignazio Messina & C., Mattioli Joint Venture and Proras SrL Engineering & Contracting wish to congratulate the African Union on its

50th Anniversary!

Italy is proud to be a partner of the African countries in promoting the integration of the continent and its economic growth. We are ready to stand on the side of the African Union in the future to contribute to its ambitious agenda and to strengthen our mutual friendship.

voices from the past Historic African leaders speak out.

t

he African Union is a pivotal world player today, but at its inauguration, it was groundbreaking. Back in 1963, a multitude of African leaders spoke

out about their love for their continent and the challenges and opportunities they envisioned in the future. Consider their words and how they still call us forward today:

ahmed ben bella prime minister of algeria, 1963-1965

“To free the people still under colonial rule, let us all accept to die a little or even completely so that ‘African Unity’ doesn't become mere words.” may/june 2013

61


Ahmed Sékou Touré P r e si d en t o f Gu i nea , 1958 - 1984

“Indeed, none of our nations, if taken individually, would be able to effectively represent Africa or fully restore its people. Africa’s contribution to humanity requires all African people to unite in achieving universal happiness.”

Kwame Nkrumah

Haile Selassie I

President of Ghana, 1951-1966

Emperor of Ethiopia, 1930-1974

“The masses of the people of Africa are crying for unity. The people of Africa call for the breaking down of the boundaries that keep them apart. We all want a united Africa, united not only in our concept of what unity connotes, but united in our common desire to move forward together in dealing with all the problems that can best be solved only on a continental basis.”

Julius Nyerere President of Tanzania, 1961-1985

“We are all agreed that the time for palaver has come to an end, that it is time to take action; that the time when our brothers fought alone has come to an end and that from now on, independent Africa must help its brothers in countries that have not yet achieved their independence.”

Gamal Abdel Nasser President of Egypt, 1956-1970

“What we need is an African spirit of organization and a dynamic, African courage to guide its free will and to launch against the problems and obstacles that stand in our continent’s way and prevent the blossoming of opportunities that could change the course of African history.”

“The challenges and opportunities that open before us today are greater than those presented at any time in Africa’s millennia of history. The risks and the dangers that confront us are no less great. The immense responsibilities that history and circumstance have thrust upon us demand balanced and sober reflection. If we succeed in the tasks that lie before us, our names will be remembered and our deeds recalled by those who follow us. If we fail, history will puzzle at our failure and mourn what was lost. “We approach the days ahead with the prayer that we who have assembled here may be granted the wisdom, the judgment and the inspiration that will enable us to maintain our faith with the peoples and the nations that have entrusted their fate to our hands. “What we require is a single African organization through which Africa’s single voice may be heard, within which Africa’s problems may be studied and resolved.”


Meles Zenawi Prime Minister of Ethiopia, 1995-2012 From a speech delivered at the January 2012 inauguration of the new AU headquarters:

“The African Renaissance that we all dreamed of is beginning to happen. There could be no better proof of this than the fact that the pundits and academics who were publicly advocating for the re-colonization of our continent have now refrained from doing so, at least in polite company. The very international magazine that came up with the banner headline ‘The Hopeless Continent’ about a decade ago has come out with a new banner headline that simply read ‘Africa Rising.’ Africa is rising indeed.”

“The African Renaissance has begun and it is within our means to keep it going. It is within our means to create a new pole of global growth in Africa, to fully stabilize our continent and to make sure that it takes its rightful place in the global scheme of things.”

From a speech delivered at the 2002 adoption of the AU charter:

“If we are considering a union as a panacea, as a magic wand which removes all our economic problems, clearly we will be disappointed. When we in Ethiopia support this union, we support it not because we believe it will be a magic wand, but because we believe that a bigger economic space is in the interest of all of us. I agree with the African Union because I assume it will be an instrument of fundamental transformation of our economies from that of rent collection to that of value creation.”

L

os Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and, if he has his way, every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It's enough to intimidate even the bravest, streethardened cops . . . except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O'Mara and Jerry Wooters, who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart. R / 113 minutes / Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone
