It was reported that a delegation of Libyan businessmen are visiting Botswana's Meat Commission to explore the possibility of importing Botswana beef under the country's policy of using African countries for exports before looking elsewhere, MBendi news service reported.
The Libyan step came after the decision of the special African Leaders’ Summit - Organization of African Unity (OAU) - which proclaimed early March the birth of the African Union, designed to unite the continent politically and economically.
"The African Union was proclaimed through the political determination of the participants, who rose to applaud," one of the participants told the agency.
To be adopted, the Union had to be ratified by the parliaments of 36 of the OAU's 53 member states – Albawaba.com
