Moscow inaugurates it’s House of Africa

On Thursday, Russia’s capital, Moscow opened its House of Africa, “Russia’s central platform for diplomatic, business and cultural activities aimed at developing Russian-African relations,” according to a report by the Russian news publication Sputnik.

The report also noted that the chairman of the board of trustees of the Africa House, Konstantin Klimenko, gave over the keys to Auguste Ludovic Aimontche, the director of the House of Africa.

“This is a significant event for us in the cooperation between Russia and African countries. It is of great importance,” the director stated.

“It is an exchange platform, a communication platform, which will allow any African to have any information that concerns them about Russia, and which will also allow any Russian to have any information that concerns them about the African continent,” he added.

The House of Africa is intended for Russian round table sessions, forums, and large meetings with delegations from Africa.

The director also disclosed that Russian businesses interested in Africa will be able to obtain essential information from the center.

“It is up to us to make it easier for any Russian investor; it is up to us to make it easier for any Russian who is interested in the culture of Africa, who is interested in the climate of Africa. It’s up to us to do all this work, and that’s why this house exists from today,” Auguste stated.

The House of Africa network across the Russian country is a result of the humanitarian and economic forum African International Conaress held in April 2023, where stakeholders including diplomats, government officials, businessmen, scientists, and cultural figures from Russia and African countries, came together to discuss mutual aftairs.
