Praia, Oct 17 (Inforpress) – Guinean economist Carlos Lopes said Wednesday that Guinea-Bissau needs “stronger” institutions that are capable of addressing the economy, transformation and well-being of people.
The current professor at the University of Cape, South Africa, made this point when asked by journalists about his perspective on the presidential elections taking place on November 24 in Guinea-Bissau.
Carlos Lopes, who was a speaker today in Praia, in a debate on “Africa in the era of trade integration. Is this the new Pan-Africanism?”, organized by the Pedro Pires Institute for Leadership, in the framework of the 4th Annual Lectures, hopes that with these elections his country will gain stability.
In his view, Guinea-Bissau needs to “change its economy, its productive structures and its treatment” to areas of the common good, such as education, health and human capital.
