Patike Communications Limited has partnered Africa Union (AU) to organise the 2010 Africa Day celebration, a global event meant to bail out Africa industrial development from the pangs of the global meltdown.
Patike Communications is the Nigerian representative of African Heritage Foundation (AHF) in the forefront of forging productive relationships between America and Africa in commerce, the arts, tourism, cultural education, student exchange programs and other cross-cultural endeavors.
The AU will unveil the global event where world industrial giants and other world leaders would meet in Atlanta, Georgia, to discussÂ how Africa would benefit from the renewed focus on industrial biotechnology industries, trade and infrastructural development financing which would involve mobilisation of hundreds of millionÂ dollars resources, for the targeted economic agenda.
The General Manager of Patike Communications Limited,Â Mrs.Catherine Agba-Ajibike while briefing newsmen in Lagos of the significance of the global event, declared that the time has come for African industrial giants and leaders to come out with a Blue Print to transform the continent.
She said, â€œWe have been given the mandate to market the event that will parade 54 African nations and highlight investment opportunities available to the world at the Africa Day Celebrationsâ€
According to her, the event which has the support of the AU, is the brain child of Chief Tunde Adetunji and has received the endorsement of Ambassador Andrew Young, The Mayor of the City of Atlanta, the 100 Black Men group and several others.
â€œThe 3- day eventÂ which will take place in Atlanta, Georgia, USA from May, 22nd 2010 to May 24th 2010, is an opportunity for nations to draw theÂ attention ofÂ foreign investors to themselves, and for strong networks to be created for the upliftment of economic potentials ofÂ nation statesâ€, she said.
She disclosed that participants from Nigeria would be required to register with Patike Communications Limited, through whomÂ all arrangements for the event from Nigeria would be made for the global event
She however called on African industrial giants to make enquiriesÂ to get details of the global events.
It would be recalled that the President/CEO of AHF, and Africa World Museum (AWM), Chief Tunde Adetunji, in a conversation recently said, â€œThe Africa Day celebration for 2010 is being organised with the active collaboration and support from the Mayorâ€™s office, the Atlanta City Council, the Atlanta Development Authority, the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce and the Atlanta 100 Black Men Associationâ€
â€œThe event also aims to fulfill the aspirations of concerned American individuals and institutions, particularly from the South East of the United States, to establish Atlanta as a gateway for integrated accelerated partnership between America and Africaâ€, he added.
He however said â€œIn addition to the 2010 Africa Union Day celebration, the AHF and the City of Atlanta will launch the first ever World Campaign and Celebration in South Africa 2010, in honor of Africa and the 2010 World Cup Games.Â This effort will focus on the launch of bringing the WORLD CUP to Atlanta, 2018â€.
