COMMUNICATION TO THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COUNCIL OF THE CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC.
MONDAY 09 AUGUST 2021
The main concern of the Central African Republic, in this world as it is today, is to create the necessary conditions to guarantee the peace and security of the country and to work for the well-being of its population. In this legitimate quest for peace within our borders and for the levers of our development, we must first rely on ourselves, on our own genius, on the mobilisation of our own resources and on an optimal allocation of our resources in relation to our national objectives. This is the path followed by all nations today: the constant search for security, political and economic autonomy in an interdependent and globalised world. Obviously, this is a difficult exercise, but it is the price of statehood. It is a prerequisite that requires many sacrifices and a holistic vision of the objectives that we have jointly defined, shared and accepted.
In other words, in the current geopolitical configuration, aggravated by the phenomenon of one-way globalisation, our salvation will lie in our lucidity and our ability to understand that really only the interests of States guide their avowed and unavowed – or unavowable – actions. To be more concrete about our country, we must ask ourselves the following questions:
1. How can we achieve peace while rebuilding an army capable of ensuring peace and security in our country in all circumstances, in the current geopolitical and geostrategic context?
2- How can we ensure the long-term financial viability of our country in this context of crisis and increased dependence on external aid?
3- What can be done to rebuild the foundations of a real national economy, robust and endogenous in the current geopolitical and geostrategic context?
