African Union Summit will unfold in the capital from February 15-19, 2023. Three sessions of the AU Assembly and Executive Council are scheduled to endorse policies through a round of discussion for five days. Dubbed "Acceleration of AfCFTA Implementation", the session will begin with Permanent Representatives' committee meetings and continues to the Executive Council Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The intra-African trade agreement was established in 2018 with the goal of deepening trade ties between African countries by removing tariff and non-tariff barriers. Under the AfCFTA, Africa's expanded goods and labour markets will become more efficient, driving significant competition between the countries, according to a study conducted by the IMF. The National Committee, established to oversee preparations, discussed with representatives of the hotel and tourism sectors. In the discussion, Birtukan Ayano, state minister for Foreign Affairs said the tourism industry players are essential to make Ethiopia a top conference tourism destination by offering excellent services to AU summit participants. The Minister of State for Tourism, Selamawit Dawit, said the upcoming conference is an opportunity to showcase the country's potential in the field of conference tourism, stating that the Ministry has prepared tour programs for the guests.
