Ghana's Ministry of Foreign Affairs Launches May as "Regional Integration Month"

At a time when I mooted the idea of virtually launching May as the "African Unity" month (!/event.php?eid=154734547925672) in March 2011, I am terribly encouraged to read that no less than Ghana's own Ministry of Foreign Affairs has launched May as "Regional Integration" month. The full story can be found here: In the interests of time, however, allow me to flesh out what some of the activities will be:

1. Between 18 and 27 May: LaPalm Royal Beach Hotel: gala awards night and African achievement awards

2. 19 May: Accra International Conference Centre(AICC): seminar on the theme: "Free Movement in Security"

3. 20 May: Flagstaff House conference room: launch of "ECOWAS Front" -- quarterly newsletter

4. 24 May:sponsored walk;

5. 25 May: African Unity day; flag-raising ceremony at forecourt of the State House; mounting of three-day exhibition (25-28 May) at AICC; fun-fair to showcase African dishes; fashion show

6. 28 May: joint Ghana-African-American Chamber of Commerce investment forum: LaPalm Royal Beach Hotel ; football match: El-Wak Stadium

These details are not from the site, but come from today's edition of THE GHANAIAN TIMES(p.33)
