Hi Anne-Rachel,

Thanks for the heads up, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I've also been checking on the Summit, but it seems (according to the draft program on the Summit Web site) that with regards to the ICT theme, the Summit will mainly consist of a discussion and adoption of the Oliver Tambo Declaration.  I think (with my limited knowledge of these procedures) that the bulk of the issues were thrashed out before and during the Johannesburg meeting last Nov.  Furthermore, given that the Oliver Tambo Declaration was made by a Ministerial meeting, I suspect it will be adopted, with minimal (if any) changes by the Assembly.  The issue moving forward will thus be how to implement the Oliver Tambo Declaration, especially in light of the fact that many similar declarations have been made in the past.  The real work now begins ...

Google Translation:

Merci pour la tête haute, et HAPPY NEW YEAR!

également eu la vérification sur le Sommet, mais il semble (d'après le
projet de programme sur le site Web du Sommet) qu'en ce qui concerne le
thème des TIC, le Sommet consistera essentiellement en une discussion
et d'adoption de la Déclaration Oliver Tambo. Je
pense (à ma connaissance limitée de ces procédures) que l'essentiel des
questions y ont été abordés avant et pendant la réunion de Johannesburg
novembre dernier. Outre, étant donné que les Oliver Tambo déclaration a
été faite par une réunion ministérielle, je pense qu'il sera adopté , avec un minimum (le cas échéant) les modifications par l'Assemblée. La
question de l'avant sera donc la façon de mettre en œuvre la
Déclaration Oliver Tambo, compte tenu notamment du fait que de
nombreuses déclarations similaires ont été faites dans le passé. Le vrai travail commence maintenant ....

Again, HAPPY NEW YEAR to all!

Heads up to all. I hope Esam can give us all the gist of what will happen regularly during the Summit. You can find all the different programmes here: http://www.africa-union.org/root/AU/Conferences/2010/january/summit/14thsummit.html# 
I do hope that all who can make it will be there on national delegations to help carry the waters of ICTs on the continent via the Oliver Tambo declaration.

Pour information et action: J'espere qu'Esam pourra nous donner des informations pendant le sommet. Ou alors, si nous pouvions avoir autant d'experts que possible sur les delegations nationales, pour pousser les recommendations qui sont sorties de la reunion de Johannesbourg, intitule Declaration Oliver Tambo.. Ce serait un pas de plus pour la region.
Le programme est ici: http://www.africa-union.org/root/AU/Conferences/2010/january/summit/14thsummit.html# 

Esam, if you can be so kind as to attach the Oliver Tambo Declaration in the different working languages, it will help people see where we are heading. Thanks also for attaching any documents that you think the community should be awre of and maybe some of the ways we can help going to the Summit?
