It’s going to be a long road and I think we need to make that clear. You don’t get out of the debts over night, but it’s simple. You pay off your debt, to not only the international financial institutions but private banks, or you reschedule them. Then you still have other debt that you still have to pay off and that’s what makes it so hard.
So, the only way to do that is with the help of the international financial institution but the private sector. That’s why it was so important to us that he goes to Davos, that he go to Abidjan, Rwanda, that the mines minister goes to South Africa for the Indaba, because it’s going to be the private sector that’s going to bring positive change.
Ambassador Thomas Jr will be completing his mission on the 31st of March.
