Bahir Dar city will host the 8th High-Level Forum on Security in Africa on May 4-5, according to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia.
‘Political Dynamics in the Horn of Africa: Nurturing the Emerging Peace Trends’ is the main issue of the meeting, which every year gathers African leaders with the aim of projecting solutions, from a common perspective, to guarantee peace and regional stability.
Known as the Tana Forum, participants in this event will debate and exchange experiences, sign agreements and foster strategic, proactive procedures in which all nations are involved.
It complements the group of meetings held by African Heads of State and Government, under the umbrella of continental and international organizations, driven by the interest of contributing to a better awareness of the subject.
Bahir Dar, about 378 kilometers from Addis Ababa, is the capital of the regional state of Amhara. It is located in the northeastern Ethiopian geography, on the south shore of Lake Tana, source of the Blue Nile.
