December 04, 2013

The Euro-Arab Center for Studies brings up in his electronic campus www.ceea.com from 17 to 25 / 11/ 2013 a debate about: “What is your evaluation of the Arab-African summit results in Kuwait?”

50 participants from different nationalities from the Arab world and the West, and who belong to various social strata Contributed to this dialogue. As a result of opinions showed that there are several points of view can be referred to it as follows:

30 participants or  60% felt that the decision of the Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah to provide soft loans to African countries with a value of one billion dollar over five years and invest a billion dollars in the field of infrastructure development has given the Arab-African summit a real force to apply the Kuwait Declaration. They felt the Kuwaiti diplomacy managed at the summit to reduce political controversy between the participating countries.

2-15 participants or 30% believe it is important to implement the decisions of the Arab summit - African.

3-5 participants or 10% do not know the presence of an Arab-African summit.

The opinion of the Euro-Arab Center for Studies:

The Arab - African Summit has been able, thanks to the Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah to get significant results in terms of loans and assistance to the African countries or in terms of important decisions to develop mutual relations and promote investment opportunities, in addition to the Arab conscience to the importance of strengthening ties with Africa which is witnessing a Western, Israeli and Chinese invasion

But the summit should have not only  mention the  crises in Africa and the effective  role of Arab on  political, economic and social levels, but  rather create mechanisms and structures for the implementation of decisions.
