The African Union (AU) consisting of 54 African states with a population of over 1.012 billion people. The AU was established on 25 May 1963. Its aim is for accelerated continental integration in political, economic and social issues among member states, and to present the African continent as a unit within the world community.
It has been driven by the five constituent regional bodies that represent the five regions within the African continent. Supporters include the African Development Bank, African Investment Bank and the Economic Commission of Africa. It is envisaged that an African Common Market with the Pan African parliament as the highest legislative body will be established.
