Minister of Finance calls for “strong leadership” for Africa to stand as a continent

Santa Maria, Dec 3 (Inforpress) – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Olavo Correia has admitted on Sal Island the need for “strong leadership” for Africa to be a continent of the future.

The Minister was speaking at a round table on the theme “Strengthening Africa’s position in the International Financial System” as part of the Three-Day African Economic Conference in Sal.

“For this to happen, it is essential we have institutions, a strong middle class, strong social control … and that is why private sector investment is fundamental,” he stressed, while admitted that it is up to the African leadership to promote African development.

“If that happens, we will create a line of opportunities and talent will make things happen, in the creative industries, in tourism, in infrastructure, in transport, in technologies and in other sectors of economic and social activity,” he said.
