 Summit to be held on 30th May in Lomé

The extraordinary summit of the Economic and Monetary Union of West Africa (UEMOA) will finally be held in Lomé on May 30 in the presence of most heads of state of member countries.
The President of Ivory Coast, Alassane Ouattara, whose swearing-in ceremony will be held on May 21, will also travel to Togo. Abdulaye Wade of Senegal has also confirmed his attendance, as did the leaders of Burkina Faso, Benin, Mali and Niger. Only unknown, the presence of Malam Bacai Sanha of Guinea Bissau.
President Faure Gnassingbé has spared no efforts to ensure the presence of most heads of state. He completed a regional mini-tour in Ouagadougou, Bamako and Dakar, last week.
Mr. Gnassingbé, who holds the presidency of the UEMOA, did not want a summit on pittance, but a meeting where one can talk about concrete things with key stakeholders. And there is plenty to discuss.
First is the return to normalcy of Ivory Coast with the reengagement of the Central Bank (BCEAO) and mechanisms to revive the Ivorian economy which depends on many countries of the Union; there is also the problem of rising prices of raw materials and essential commodities.
UEMOA group consists of eight countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Guinea Bissau, Mali, Niger, Senegal and Togo.
