G8 SUMMIT ON AFRICA: "GRAND DECLARATIONS ARE NOT ENOUGH", WARNS THE ALDE

ALDE Press Release - 6 July 2005 The Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe participated actively in today's debate in the European Parliament a few hours ahead of the opening of the G8 meeting in Gleneagles dedicated to Africa's development. Fiona HALL (UK, Lib Dem) doubted the positive benefits of measures such as debt relief, if U.S. and European agricultural export subsidies are maintained. "No-one decided to keep Africa poor, but in practice Europe has contributed to African poverty because of the side-effects of focusing blindly on stabilising and supporting European agriculture, industry and fisheries", she underlined. "Will the reduction of poverty still remain a priority in the next few months- far from media spotlights and our Parliament's monitoring activities? Will the attention sustain in felted arm chair discussions on the restitution of exports, on the reform of the sugar's common market and on economic and partnership agreement talks?" Mrs. Hall wondered. Similar doubts were shared on Europe's ambition to increase yearly assistance. Today, EU aid counts already for 55% of the world assistance. To stay in line with the Millenium Development Goals, EU aid should rise from 20 billion euros in 2010 to 45 billion euros in 2015. "The most important point is not necessarily to increase aid but to ensure that it safely arrives to the doors of the populations in need. European taxpayers contribute to funding this assistance. They deserve checks and balances", declared Thierry CORNILLET (UDF, France). According to Emma BONINO (Radical, Italy), Africans should equally bear the responsibility for the great affliction on the continent. Africans themselves need to fight against the corruption and improve their own governorship. "No economy and no trade can properly function without the rule of law. In my view, democratization is the priority of all priorities ", she declared, adding that "government aid should be linked to progress in this field to the beneficiary countries". SOMMET DU G8 SUR L'AFRIQUE: L'ADLE MET EN GARDE CONTRE LES EFFETS D'ANNONCE ADLE CommuniquĂ© de presse - 6 juillet 2005 L'Alliance des dĂ©mocrates et des libĂ©raux pour l'Europe a pris une part active au dĂ©bat public qui s'est tenu aujourd'hui en session plĂ©niĂšre du Parlement europĂ©en Ă  Strasbourg Ă  quelques heures de l'ouverture du Sommet du G8 Ă  Gleneagles consacrĂ© au dĂ©veloppement de l'Afrique. Fionna HALL (LibDem, Royaume-Uni) s'est montrĂ©e dubitative sur l'effet des mesures attendues, comme l'annulation de la dette, si dans le mĂȘme temps sont maintenues les subventions amĂ©ricaines et europĂ©ennes aux exportations agricoles. "Personne n'a dĂ©cidĂ© de rendre l'Afrique pauvre mais dans les faits l'Europe a contribuĂ© Ă  cette pauvretĂ© en raison des effets collatĂ©raux de sa politique aveugle de soutien Ă  son industrie agricole et de pĂȘche", a-t-elle soulignĂ©. "Loin des feux de la rampe mĂ©diatique, loin aussi de la surveillance de notre Parlement, mais dans les discussions feutrĂ©s des arriĂšre-salles - sur les restitutions Ă  l'exportation, sur la rĂ©forme de l'organisation commune du marchĂ© du sucre, sur les Accords de partenariat Ă©conomique - est-ce que la rĂ©duction de la pauvretĂ© sera encore la prioritĂ© dans quelques mois?", s'est interrogĂ©e Mme Hall. MĂȘme doute concernant l'augmentation de l'aide envisagĂ©e alors que les dirigeants europĂ©ens doivent convenir d'une majoration annuelle de l'aide - qui reprĂ©sente dĂ©jĂ  55% de l'aide mondiale - de 20 milliards d'euros d'ici 2010 et de 45 milliards d'euros d'ici 2015, terme des Objectifs du MillĂ©naire. "L'important n'est pas d'augmenter l'aide mais de s'assurer qu'elle parvienne bien aux populations des pays concernĂ©s. Nous devons cette vĂ©rification d'efficience aux contribuables europĂ©ens qui financent cette aide", a dĂ©clarĂ© Thierry CORNILLET (UDF, France). Pour Emma BONINO (Radicale, Italie), bien des maux africains sont de la responsabilitĂ© des Africains eux mĂȘmes qui doivent lutter contre la corruption et amĂ©liorer leur gouvernance. "Aucune Ă©conomie, aucun commerce ne peut fonctionner sans Etat de droit. La dĂ©mocratisation est selon moi la prioritĂ© des prioritĂ©s", a-t-elle dĂ©clarĂ© en ajoutant: "L'aide publique devrait ĂȘtre liĂ©e au progrĂšs dans ce domaine des pays bĂ©nĂ©ficiaires".
