Mobilization Plan of Action Based on the Declaration

Mobilization and support of all business professionals, all business chamber of commerce, entrepreneurs, organizations, and non-Governmental Organizations NGOs) within the Diaspora.

To achieve this goal, we intend to conduct various meetings in regions across the African Diaspora in the United States based on the Diaspora Declaration’s guidelines and the realms of the African Diaspora Sixth Region.

The AU6RUSA is committed to promoting and sustaining linkages with the African Diaspora in trade and investment, science and technology, information communication technology (ICT), travel and tourism, communication and transportation, energy and cultural industries.

We will continue to design and develop platforms for educators, professionals, and scholars from Africa and the Diaspora to enhance our developmental agenda and the AU Agenda 2063. This initiative will include, among other things, the establishment of Pan-African-centered institutions and programs and increased partnership between academic and research institutions in Africa and the Diasporic regions and States.


 Unity is strength, so we must unite to build capital and strengthen links that will further enhance the economic foundation between Africa and the Diaspora.

We Must Unite Beyond 400, the designated year of the African Diaspora!
