Origin : www.sadc.int/index/browse/page/465
The Southern African Development Co-ordination Conference, SADCC, the forerunner of the SADC, the Community, was established in April 1980. The SADC is one of the Regional Economic Communities (RECs). They are regional groupings of African states organized into a legal entity by treaty, with economic and social integration as their main objective. The African Union currently recognizes eight RECs, each of which plays a key role in African integration.
