I have leaded my interview with the trade representative in Guinea embassy Mr. Aziz Diuff about few problems especially on the topics of social and economic crises. Along the interview I have learned that Guinea is an underdeveloped country who can’t support fully the aspirations of people, without the help of others states and NGO.
In response to my question concerning the low level of development of the country he said that Guinea isn’t a rich country and the helps (Donation, lines of credits) coming from the friendly states are object of embezzlement by the local oligarchy.
His answer about the future of Social and economic state of Guinea is more uplifting.
He said that this catastrophically situation support the illegal immigration, traffic of human and smuggling of arms with a dramatically result which is a collapse of the state and Guinea will become a bankrupt state.
On the question of what is the future of young men and women from Guinea face this situation of underdevelopment and lack of will in spite of the natural resources available in the country, he said that the future is compromised if no deep action is taken before it itself too late.
He added that his country cannot continue to wait for the assistance of friendly countries to survive. It’s true that it’s not easy especially that Guinea is moving in a very hostile geopolitical context with the addition of ethnic conflict problems, problems of political instability with almost frequent coups and interference in the by foreign powers including France.
About the corruption, He recognized that it is a fact like in all Africa and the third World but in Guinea the proportion of corruption is minimized. Guinea have also an elite who can, if it’s possible, to pull the Guinean society to the progress, because Guinea have many strengths like the Naturals resources, fishery resource and agriculture.
About the government’s social policy, he said that his country made great efforts to ensure better living conditions for the population but as it is known, the Guinean state was unable to fight against the Ebola outbreak which resulted in many deaths and if it was using the friendly countries the disaster would have been disastrous.
To end the interview my last question was about the vision who has my interlocutor on the ways and means to undertake out the Guinea under development and what are the initiatives that friendly countries and international organizations are able to drive on the ground to assist Guinea in its quest for prosperity?
His answer was very strong above all his voice change and he spoke with He spoke with great bitterness and despair, saying that to friendly countries and international organizations, he did not expect much because there is no real will. About my personal view, I believe that only Guinean and are most concerned are those who must take charge of their destiny.
