Bob Geldof Quotations
- On the positive
front, economic growth has boomed; indeed, next year Ethiopia is expected
to be among the top five fastest growing economies in the world.
- Increasingly erratic
rainfall has forced farmers to radically alter their systems. Some communities
we visited in Tigray have had to rename the months of the year because
the names were based on the seasons.
- The tension between
the positive and negative changes in Ethiopia is palpable.
- I do not use the
word life-changing lightly.
- Investing in agriculture
in Africa, both through government aid and private funds, is critical;
it can also be highly profitable.
- Africa is where
some of the best returns on investment will be made in the next few
decades. We must partner as we have promised with these people, for
the sake of our global economy as well as our global environment.
- Africa must be
allowed to trade itself out of poverty.
- We live in a broken
world which has never been healthier or wealthier, but some 500 kilometres
south of here they die of want.
