Archbishop of Canterbury calls on governments of the G-8 countries to boost
poverty reduction in Africa
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr George Carey, has called on the governments
attending the G-8 summit in Canada to do more to alleviate poverty in
"I welcome the focus being given by the G-8 to addressing the problems of
the continent of Africa. This represents a real opportunity for the
Governments of the G-8 countries, in partnership with African Governments,
to set goals that will reduce significantly the levels of poverty on the
Continent. I support the call on members of the G-8 to create a framework
that will give scope for much needed socio-economic development in Africa.
In particular, much still needs to be done to remove the burden of debt from
the poorest countries in Africa, as well as giving them more open access to
the markets of the developed world."
