Let me begin by welcoming to you all to this important second meeting of our Executive Committee which precedes the 49th Plenary Assembly of the SADC Parliamentary Forum to be hosted by Parliament of Botswana. Let me also express my gratitude to you, Hon. Members of the Executive Committee, and the Secretariat, for supporting my Office while DRC holds the prestigious position of the Presidency of the Forum. The warm wave of support that I immediately felt upon joining the Forum, should continue to define the way we do business going forward.
