    Background: Representatives from fifteen newly independent African nations were at the Jan 24 opening of the first Euro-African Parliamentary Congress in Rome's Hall of Congresses. The opening speech was made by Herr Hans Furler, West German President of the European Parliamentary Assembly.

    Delegates will attend two sessions daily until the Congress ends Jan 26. Although only a preliminary to more important meetings scheduled for June, the Congress provides an excellent opportunity for the African parliamentarians to discuss their problems and benefit from the experience of their European counterparts.

    Comprised mainly of former French administered territories, the African nations attending were Cameroun-Central African Republic - Congo (Brazzaville) - Dahomey - Gabon-High Volta - Malagasey-Mali-Mauretania - Niger - Senegal-Somalis - Tchad - and Togoland. They were represented by Presidents and Deputies of their respective National Assemblies.
