Certainly a great city for DCA to continue its campaign to build partnership, develop its constituencies and raise awareness for the .africa initiative.

The summit theme “The African Policy Forum – A vision for the 21st Century” was organized by the Leon Sullivan Foundation. Its aim was to create a policy dialog to build bridges across generations, geographic impediments, religious differences, ethic and tribal conflicts, and political perspectives and philosophy. “These criteria are a match made in heaven with the objectives of DCA . So many of these challenges can be helped through unity and that’s exactly what DCA promotes through its single domain for the African continent", said Ms. Bekele.
The platform and infrastructure provided by the Leone Sullivan organizers provided for an Africa-focused discussion, but looked to Africa to provide the prescriptions. The dotAfrica domain is to bridge the economic and digital divide by promoting regional integration between national identifiers such as co.ke (Kenya), co.za (S.Africa), as well as COMESA.africa or ECOWAS.africa. DCA took opportunities to discuss and present the positions of dotafrica and how it can assist bridge this cultural and dialog gap,. The message was received by attendees with excitement and optimism for the future.
Naturally as a world class city, Atlanta has so much to offer the visitor and it did not disappoint. The Africa Policy Forum also gave an opportunity to visit this wonderful city and meet its welcoming people. Along with large gathering of African Diaspora, African Heads of State and policy makers this was a truly memorable event.
We thank the organizers for their warm African hospitality and holding a very successful summit.
