DRC – Africa Business Forum : de hauts dirigeants africains souhaitent développer des batteries et véhicules électriques sur le continent – The Maravi Post

Plusieurs hauts dirigeants africains ont appelé à « transformer le rêve en réalité » lors du forum des affaires sur les batteries et véhicules électriques en Afrique, appelé « DRC-Africa Business Forum », qui s’est ouvert, mercredi à Kinshasa, en République démocratique du Congo (RDC).

Le président de la RDC, Félix Tshisekedi, a inauguré le forum aux côtés de son homologue zambien, Hakainde Hichilema, de représentants des chefs d’État du Gabon et du Maroc, et du président du Groupe de la Banque africaine de développement, Dr Akinwumi A. Adesina, dont l’institution est partenaire de l’événement.

« Ce Forum constitue une véritable opportunité d’accorder nos vues sur les enjeux du développement en Afrique et sur le processus de la transformation structurelle du continent. Il constitue un cadre adéquat pour passer d’une croissance brune à une croissance verte, plus résiliente et diversifiée », a déclaré le président Tshisekedi. Il a souligné que la transition mondiale vers une économie verte était une exigence.

« L’Afrique compte 60 types de minerais et dispose du tiers des réserves mondiales de minerais, a-t-il rappelé. Ces assises nous donnent l’occasion de capitaliser les occasions d’investissement. Une meilleure intégration des producteurs de minerais contribuera à l’augmentation des richesses et à la création d’emplois et de nouvelles compétences pour les jeunes », a ajouté Félix Tshisekedi.

Le président zambien s’est dit convaincu des « bénéfices fondamentaux » que produirait le forum pour le continent. Il a appelé les pays africains à saisir l’occasion de transformer leurs ressources minières. « L’objectif de ce dialogue consiste à changer les choses. Nous devons apporter de la valeur à nos produits, ce que nous n’avons pas fait pendant des siècles. Maintenant, nous devons casser l’image d’un simple continent producteur de matières premières », a estimé Hakainde Hichilema.

Rappelant que la Zambie était « disposée à investir, à coopérer avec la RDC et avec les autres pays de la sous-région sur cet objectif », le président Hakainde Hichilema a tracé plusieurs axes de travail, parmi lesquels : encourager et faciliter les investissements ; mettre en œuvre la vision de transformation et les aspirations pour le renforcement des capacités de production collectives ; élaborer des politiques et instruments continentaux pour appuyer la transformation des matières premières, en partenariat avec les partenaires et banques de développement ; entreprendre des réformes clés.

« Nous restons mobilisés avec d’autres partenaires pour soutenir le développement de l’industrie des batteries en Afrique, en commençant en République démocratique du Congo, a soutenu le président de la Banque africaine de développement, Dr Akinwumi A. Adesina. Les véhicules électriques sont une révolution et une occasion unique pour l’Afrique de transformer ses richesses naturelles en une prospérité durable pour tous. Ce qui serait, en soi, une grande révolution. Appuyons sur les pédales ! Accélérons et  transformons ce rêve en réalité ! »

Le DRC – Africa Business Forum est organisé par le ministère congolais de l’Industrie, en partenariat avec la Commission économique des Nations unies pour l’Afrique, la Banque africaine de développement, Afreximbank, Africa Finance Corporation, la Banque arabe pour le développement économique en Afrique, la Facilité africaine de soutien juridique et le Pacte mondial des Nations unies.

L’événement entend apporter des solutions pour améliorer les conditions de vie des Africains en développant des chaînes de valeur liées aux ressources minières utilisées dans les batteries électriques (cobalt, cuivre, lithium, manganèse, nickel, graphite). Un moyen de tirer parti de la transition mondiale vers les énergies vertes, l’utilisation de l’électricité dans les systèmes de transport et la décarbonation des économies.

Solomon Islands Tension – The Maravi Post

Published

8 hours ago

Three bodies were found in a burnt out building in Honiara amid this week’s violence in the capital of the Solomon Islands, Australian media reported. Authorities had put a curfew in place on Friday night in an attempt to stem the unrest and the situation seemed to be calmer on Saturday. But the government showed no signs of addressing the underlying grievances that sparked two days of riots, including concerns about the country’s increasing links with China. Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare sought to deflect attention from domestic issues by blaming outside interference for stirring up the protesters, with a thinly veiled reference to Taiwan and the United States. Honiara’s Chinatown and its downtown precinct were focuses of rioters, looters and protesters who demanded the resignation of Sogavare, who has been prime minister intermittently since 2000. Sogavare has been widely criticized by leaders of the country’s most populous island of Malaita for a 2019 decision to drop diplomatic ties with Taiwan in favor of mainland China. His government, meanwhile, has been upset over millions in U.S. aid promised directly to Malaita, rather than through the central government. Those issues are just the latest in decades of rivalry between Malaita and Guadalcanal, where the capital, Honiara, is located, said Jonathan Pryke, director of the Sydney-based Lowy Institute think tank’s Pacific Islands program. The Solomon Islands, with a population of about 700,000, are located about 1,500 kilometers (1,000 miles) northeast of Australia.

Immunology professor talks about the new coronavirus variant – The Maravi Post

Published

on

By


Passengers at Johannesburg’s O.R Tambo airport scrambled this Saturday to find flights to Europe as more and more countries are shutting doors to passengers coming from African countries.

The emergence of the new coronavirus Omicron variant in South Africa sparked a worldwide reaction.

Professor of Immunology Danny Altmann explains.

“I know it feels very harsh to people in South Africa who have really done the right thing and been terribly speedy and vigilant in their reporting. But I just feel that we were so slow to act on Delta and the whole world paid such a high price for it. Let’s try and be forewarned and do it properly this time. So, I think it probably is warranted”, said the academic working at Imperial College London.

Last minute PCR tests are now mandatory.

The UK-based professor believes that vaccination still offers protection against the worst effects of this disease.

“I think it’s a case of kind of hope for the best and fear the worst, isn’t it? So in some ways, if you look at the straight molecular biology limitations, it looks potentially quite a lot scarier even than Delta. And don’t forget, we thought of Delta. I certainly thought Delta as a peak variant, and probably it couldn’t get much worse than that. This looks potentially worse. On the other hand, there’s no reporting from South Africa yet that cases are more severe, and it looks like vaccines may still be doing something because we heard there yesterday that the people in hospital tended to be the unvaccinated people rather than the vaccinated”, said Professor Altmann.

In Africa vaccination rates are significantly lower compared to Europe, the United States and other regions.

According to Professor Altmann, distribution of vaccines throughout Africa is essential to stop future variants.

“You know, in this particular case, if it did come out of Botswana and or South Africa, there has been quite a lot of vaccine available there. But as you say in the African continent as a whole, they’ve been very short of vaccines compared to Europe or North America. And things like this demonstrate how foolhardy that is. We’re just breeding the future variants to come and haunt us. Why do it?”

The latest available data indicate that South Africa has registered almost 3 million cases of Covid-19 and close to 90,000 deaths.
