BUJUMBURA December 14th (ABP) – The Prime Minister of the Republic of Burundi, Mr. Gervais Ndirakobuca, returned on Monday, December 12, 2022, from Luanda in Angola, where he represented the Head of State, Evariste Ndayishimiye, at the 10th Summit of Heads of State and Government of Member States of the African Union, the Caribbean and the Pacific, on security, economic diversity and climate change.
Prime Minister Ndirakobuca told the press that after discussing the challenges facing some African countries, the Heads of State and Government noted that the economy of some countries has been disrupted by Covid-19 and the wars which are observed in certain countries of the world. To that end, he pointed out that as a solution, they have decided to put forward the industrialization system and maintain security. He went on to say that they were able to analyze together how rich countries can help developing countries, in order to promote the economy and industrialization sector because, he pointed out, they have found that some African countries are more exposed to poverty while they can harness their wealth.
The Prime Minister also indicated that he had the opportunity to meet the Executive Secretary of the African Union, and were able to discuss investments. The executive secretary of the African Union has agreed to do his best so that investors can come and invest in Burundi.
That Summit was marked by the handover ceremonies between the outgoing president of Kenya and the incoming president of the Republic of Angola in the chairmanship of the organization, Prime Minister Ndirakobuca said.
