Kuwait to co-chair Arab-African meeting in Equatorial Guinea
Kuwait is set to co-chair with Chad an extraordinary meeting of the Arab-African partnership Coordination Committee due in Equatorial Guinea on April 29, a Kuwaiti diplomat said on Sunday.
 
During the meeting, Equatorial Guinea is expected to make a presentation on logistical preparations for hosting the Fourth Africa-Arab Summit, as well as recommendations to be produced by the second meeting of the summit's preparatory committee slated on April 27, Assistant Foreign Minister for Africa Ambassador Hamad Al-Mashaan said to KUNA.
 
Apart from Kuwait, Egypt, Mauritania, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe and Chad are poised to participate in the committee's meeting, he added.
 
The Arab League and African Union (AU) Commission will also give a briefing during the meeting on activities to be carried out on the sidelines of the summit, primarily a ceremony to honor the winners of the Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Sumait Prize for African Development, he said.
 
Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Sumait Prize is named after the Kuwaiti physician, Abdulrahman Al-Sumait who spent his lifetime dedicated towards helping the poor in Africa in the field of health and education.
 
The objective of the prize is to appreciate and recognize the best studies, scientific projects, applied research, and innovative initiatives, which within the health field have made significant impact and lasting influence in advancing progress to economic and social development in Africa.
 
The extraordinary meeting of the Arab-African partnership Coordination Committee also features a youth forum, a book fair and an Arab-African economic forum, the Kuwaiti diplomat pointed out.
 
The Fourth Africa-Arab Summit is scheduled to take place in Equatorial Guinea in November 2016.
