On 05 February 2010 the Founder and Executive Director of ACCORD, Vasu Gounden, was invited by H.E. Ambassador Myllyntausta, the Finnish Ambassador to South Africa, to meet with H.E. Ambassador Pasi Patokallio, the Special Representative of the Finnish Minister of Foreign Affairs.

In November 2009 Mr. Gounden was invited to address a meeting of the European Union (EU) Development Councillors based in South Africa where he had the opportunity to engage with the Councilors on their views and perceptions of the Continent and to answer or clarify perceptions which could change the way that they, and in the long run their governments, may view the environment on the Continent.
