Headline edit

@CSJJ104: A more descriptive headline really would be nice here, perhaps specify what they agreed upon or said? Heavy Water (talk) 19:42, 22 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What did you have in mind? Something like "African Union summit closes with continued suspension of members and agreement on trade deal"? Although this feels quite wordy. CSJJ104 (talk) 20:49, 22 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Maybe just "African Union summit closes; bloc reaffirms member suspensions, support for trade deal"? The sources don't say they announced any agreement on trade, just a recommitment to the previous deal. Heavy Water (talk) 21:34, 22 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sounds good to me. I've made the move now :) CSJJ104 (talk) 03:26, 23 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Title edit

@Heavy Water I should say (at risk of being pedantic), from what I've noticed in published articles (and the style guide I'm inclined to believe tacitly endorses?) when the person's position is not exactly cited viz. "The Canadian premier" vs "The Canadian Prime Minister" it's fine to downspace, so "AU chairman" where the actual title is "Chairperson of the African Union" is technically correct. But I support your change. JJLiu112 (talk) 17:15, 23 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Review of revision 4711212 [Passed] edit

Image caption edit

@Heavy Water - Thanks for the review and your helpful comments :) Possibly I'm misunderstanding, but should the image caption not read "A map of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement with signatories who have not ratified the agreement in light green." As it stands I interpreted it as they had not formally joined the African Union. CSJJ104 (talk) 02:28, 24 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oh, yeah, that was what I meant. I have fixed it. Thanks for catching it, Heavy Water (talk) 02:38, 24 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The statement that says "AfCFTA, initiated in 2020, has faltered" seems like a value judgement. According to whom? And by what standards is it faltering? I have not read the sources and maybe it is too late to add attribution or expand on what 'faltering' means for an organization such as this. SVTCobra 08:27, 12 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
