Recognising the critical importance of integration to the transformation and sustainable development of Africa as envisioned by Agenda 2063, the former President of the United Republic of Tanzania, H.E. Benjamin William Mkapa will convene the second African Leadership Forum (ALF) in Dar es Salaam on 30 July, 2015. Organised by UONGOZI Institute, the event will bring together political leaders, including current and former Heads of State, as well as leaders from government, business, civil society and academia.

Discussions of the Forum will be held under the theme: “Moving Towards an Integrated Africa”. The event will provide a platform to explore how best to overcome the obstacles to intra-African interaction, collaboration, coordination and harmonisation so that Africa’s richness could be better marshalled to realise the common goals of prosperity and security of the continent and its people.
