Guebuza Carter Centre speech

In a speech at the Carter Centre on 9 December 2005, Mozambican President Armando Guebuza criticised doors for telling Mozambique it cannot have a development bank. "Privatization means privatizing for the foreigner, and the domestic entrepreneurs do not have the resources, they are not given the chance to have the resources, and they are not part of those that should play an important role in creating wealth in the country and providing jobs." A development bank would change that. In the discussion, Mozambicans said "donors are actively discouraging" the development bank "through surreptitious means."

President Guebuza called on donors to listen a little bit more to what Mozambique says it wants, and to stop demanding so many viability studies. "We are the first ones interested in solving our problems. We feel them every day, and that is why we need to own our own development program"
