Government wants to take advantage of the 4th World Forum of Local Economic Development to achieve sustainable development


Praia, June 9 (Inforpress) – The Government considers an “honor and privilege” to Cabo Verde host the Fourth World Forum on Local Economic Development in October, an initiative unprecedented in Africa, because it is fundamental to the construction of the road for sustainable development.

The Minister of Parliamentary Affairs made this statement this morning at the opening of the high-level meeting with public administration leaders for the 4th World Forum of Local Economic Development, to be held from 17 to 20 October, an event that is characterized by “great level and size” and mobilizes thousands of participants.

Fernando Elisio Freire said that this is an event that is part of an ongoing process to promote dialogue and exchange of experiences on local economic development and partnerships for concrete actions, aiming at locating the Sustainable Development Goals, ODS.

He advocates that the implementation of ODS will be at the center of the Government’s focus on action programs, indicator building, cooperation and financing of impact outcomes, so that the objectives of poverty reduction, access to health, and education, access to water, sanitation and energy within other objectives are defined and achieved at national level.
