Amb. Ren‚ Val‚ry Mongbe said that the resolution on urgent action for Africa urges African countries to take steps to elaborate national action programmes and recommends that African countries and donors strengthen their partnerships. Countries must show their firm commitment to the resolution of this problem. With regards to technical assistance, the African Annex mentions the need to give preference to African experts whose services will be cheaper than those of foreign consultants. Now the time has come to join actions with words.
