Myles Wickstead, head of the Commission for Africa Secretariat, also spoke at the meeting.
Commissioners spoke of the importance of following up on the report’s recommendations. They reiterated the Commission’s original message that Africa is ultimately responsible for its own development and said that the Commission had offered a comprehensive package of measures for how the international community could support Africa in this endeavour.
