Alie Kabba Address the Impact of Global Migration

The minister was delivering the keynote address on “the impact of global migration.”  Dr. Alie Kabba spoke about the need to “build partnerships and strengthen Corporation on international migration”.

At 09:00 am this morning the 23rd May 2018, on the second floor of the conference hall of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Corporation, Minister Alie Kabba opened a Consultative Conference with greetings to the gathering from his excellency president Julius Maada Bio.

The minister was delivering the keynote address on “the impact of global migration.”  Dr. Alie Kabba spoke about the need to “build partnerships and strengthen Corporation on international migration”.

He emphasized the necessity for “a comprehensive approach to optimizing the benefits of migration as well as addressing the risks associated with the phenomenon.”

The minister also underlined the importance of “the shared responsibility of all stakeholders to protect the human rights of migrants all over the world.”

Dr. Kabba pointed out the challenges associated with international migration which he described as “worrisome” especially for “our youths, women and their children” who take great risks moving across borders “in search of jobs or in pursuit of their dreams to live better lives elsewhere.”

The minister also made particular reference to the border crossings across the Mediterranean and the dangers associated with such hazardous crossings.

He acknowledged the causes of migration with a national governmental commitment to creating “conducive political, economic social and environmental conditions for our people to live peaceful productive and sustainable lives to deter desperation from compelling them to seek a livelihood elsewhere.”

To achieve this goal, the minister re-echoed the expressed commitment of the “New Direction” to invest in the human capital development of the country, especially the youths.

Alie Kabba went on to challenge the consultative conference to produce something that would not only address some of the many challenges bedeviling global migration but something that should serve as “an international blueprint” for tackling those challenges.

Please listen to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Corporation, Dr. Alie Sanjan Kabba.  In this audio, the Minister commits the New Direction government under H.E. President Julius Maada Bio, to tackling the causes of “asphyxiating poverty and social inequalities” and sufficiently strengthening the governance structure so that ordinary people can develop enough trust in their government to have the confidence to stay and thrive in their land.
