As time went on, the OAU be­came the African Union be­cause of the in­creas­ingly eco­nomic, rather than po­lit­i­cal, na­ture of the chal­lenges faced by the con­ti­nent.

Lim­popo is an In­te­gral part of South Africa, as much as it is of the African Con­ti­nent.

Lim­popo Prov­ince, the heart­land of South­ern Africa, is also known as the gate­way to Africa due to its strate­gic lo­ca­tion on the Great North Road to Zim­babwe, its links to the port of Ma­puto in Mozam­bique via the Pha­l­aborwa Spa­tial De­vel­op­ment ini­tia­tive and Ma­puto cor­ri­dor as well as its prox­im­ity to the Repub­lic of Botswana.

In light of Africa Day, the Lim­popo Prov­ince is work­ing to­wards:

• Op­ti­mis­ing the eco­nomic op­por­tu­ni­ties that ex­ist be­tween the prov­ince of Mate­bele­land and the City of Bu­l­awayo (Zim­babwe), the prov­ince of Gaza (Mozam­bique) and the four re­gions (Oshana, Ohang­wena, Omosati, Oshikoto) of Namibia; and fa­cil­i­tat­ing the de­vel­op­ment of the Lim­popo Spa­tial De­vel­op­ment Ini­tia­tive.

• Pur­su­ing ex­cel­lence in gov­er­nance that would com­mand in­vestor con­fi­dence and at­tract in­vest­ment.

• Pro­mot­ing and en­cour­age so­cial and

cul­tural de­vel­op­ment.

• Fa­cil­i­tat­ing the de­vel­op­ment of

re­sources.

• Pro­mot­ing the prov­ince as a unique eco­tourism des­ti­na­tion with spe­cial ref­er­ence to the emerg­ing Trans­fron­tier con­ver­sa­tion area.

South Africa, and Africa as a whole, has made great strides to­wards over­com­ing op­pres­sion and build­ing a bet­ter fu­ture for the con­ti­nent. This Africa Day, do your part in bet­ter­ing the world around you.
