DIPLOMACY – A Canadian minister visits Madagascar

Since Wednesday, the Canadian Minister of International Development has landed on Malagasy territory. The primary reason for this visit is to strengthen bilateral cooperation between the two countries.

Reaffirmation of bilateral cooperation. This is the main reason for the visit of Ahmed Hussen, Canadian Minister of International Development. He was welcomed the day before yesterday at Ivato International Airport by Kola Emi-Haulin, Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He immediately took part in meetings with various state figures. Yesterday morning, the Canadian minister met with several members of the international community, including the United Nations resident coordinator, the ambassadors of the European Union and the United States as well as the resident representative of the Bank worldwide.

Given the absence of Minister Rafaravavitafika Rasata traveling abroad, he was received by General Lala Monja Delphin Sahivelo, the Minister of the Armed Forces who acts as the Minister of Foreign Affairs, yesterday in Anosy. The meeting focused on discussing ways and means to strengthen economic and technical cooperation between the two countries. The areas of environment, infrastructure, technical education and mines were at the heart of the debates. Just after the meeting, Ahmed Hussen took part in a working session with some members of the government, including Max Fontaine, Minister of the Environment and Sustainable Development, Lalatiana Rakotondrazafy, Minister of Technical Education and Vocational Training, as well as Herindrainy Olivier Rakotomalala, Minister of Mines.

Relations between the two countries are currently in good shape. A cooperation that has lasted since 1965 between two countries united by a common membership of the United Nations as well as the Francophonie. Madagascar and Canada also share the same visions on several points such as gender equality, education, the environment and climate change.
