• Paulo Rogério Nunes
    The Brazil Africa connection will only effectively happen, when Afro-descendants, who have entered universities and want to do trade with Africa, are heard and taken into consideration in debates like this.
    Paulo Rogério Nunes
    CEO of Vale do Dendê
  • Maurício Cysne
    We are not going to be able to overcome the gulf in development if we do not have the young people on the supply side, using everything they know in technological terms. This technological issue creates a bridge that transforms the Atlantic into a stream
    Maurício Cysne
    Director of External Relations at Unitaid
  • Nísia Trindade
    The great challenge is the sustainability and continuity of the programs. A river is a good metaphor for the Atlantic Ocean and it is these bridges that we should seek to build in an event like this,
    Nísia Trindade
    President of the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation
  • Daniel Balaban
    Do not we have the technology to fight hunger in the world? What we need is the political commitment to do this. The world spends a trillion and a half on military issues and, to end hunger, we use only 1% of that expenditure. This is a shame. We should invest money in technology to support smallholder farmers and small producers
    Daniel Balaban
    Director of the Centre for Excellence against Hunger
  • Claus Reiner
    Youth employment and opportunity is very important because it can be a way of maintaining the biodiversity in rural areas. Technology questions is very important because the youth would like to have a new role. They would like to work with the technology
    Claus Reiner
    Country Director of IFAD
  • George Elombi
    The focus that we put on South-south trade makes us look into the Brazilian model. The challenge is not the lack of money, but entrepreneurship and management skills. We would like to see Brazil coming to the continent with as much boldness as India came. Brazil could do the same as India and China.
    George Elombi
    Executive Vice President of Governance, Legal and Corporate Services of Afreximbank
  • Jorge Chediek
    This Forum is an expression for South-South Cooperations. This cooperation started to avoid the repetition of the great depression. This cooperation was driven by the principles of equality, non-interference policies and self-reliance between Souther countries.
    Jorge Chediek
    Envoy of the UN Secretary-General for South-South Cooperation
  • Abena Busia
    It is important that we create opportunities for the youth to participate in the nation building and actively participate in the governance of their society. We have to combat injustice between women and males. It is my expectation that this forum will encompass the SDGs and the African Union's agenda 2063.
    Abena Busia
    Ambassador from Ghana to Brazil
