Ministerial Conference on “Sustainability of Migratory Phenomenon; towards a new Model of Dialogue”
Rome, Italy

Foreign Minister Osman SalehExcellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen

It gives me a great pleasure to address this meeting on “Sustainability of Migratory Phenomenon; towards a new Model of Dialogue”. Immigration has a long history and currently constitutes a mighty force globally with deep ramifications in the economic, social and political landscape of countries. The directions of flows are asymmetric; the broader pool has heterogeneous traits and is linked to human trafficking and related crimes…..

Migration is not peculiar to Eritrea and it assumed different forms at different times of its history. The migration flow in the last decade in particular demands understanding of Eritrea’s concrete reality….

Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen

Eritrea’s development efforts since independence in 1991 has focused on nation building to reconstruct the tattered economy, institutions and infrastructure inherited as a result of colonial policies and the protracted war of occupation…. Read more

President Isaias Afewerki’s speech on the occasion of the 25th Independence day celebrations

Dear Participants,
Allow me to congratulate the people of Eritrea everywhere as well as the friends who stood on the side of, and extended their solidarity to, the liberation struggle and independence of the Eritrean people.

Let me further express our profound gratitude to all our compatriots who have come from abroad to amplify the significance of this auspicious moment, as well as to foreign and domestic artists, athletes, youth, students and children who have made tremendous efforts, under the coordination of the Commission of Culture and Sports, to present spectacular shows.

What is the significance of 25 years or quarter of century of “resilience and development”? Where did we start from; in which place?  And, where are we going?

Where did we start from; where are we and where could we have been; what is the trajectory of our future progress?  How do we conduct resistance and development? Why does that succeed?  How did we achieve independence? How do we defend and build it?  All these questions/issues impinge and define the contours of our road-map.  In this perspective, I will give a bird’s eye view without going into minute details.

Address by President Isaias Afwerki on the 10th Anniversary of Eritrea’s Greening Campaign, Asmara, 15 May 2016Dear Participants,

The vital importance of afforestation and greening programmes is too vivid and universally recognized to merit elaboration or warrant new innovation.   These programmes have more relevance to us than other peoples and countries.  In the event, the pertinent question that must be raised on such occasions is what have we done in concrete terms? This must be gauged against the backdrop of our high aspirations; particularly as we are fully cognizant of the importance of the programmes.

The afforestation programme will not be rigorously implemented through sheer and sporadic public relations exercises.  It must go beyond posting publicity banners in various streets and billboards; broaching the subject on the sidelines of propitious occasions; or, simple adherence to “initiatives of development partners”.  It cannot be seen from the perspectives of global warming (as articulated by others) alone and by the perceived need of participating in international “conferences” to sign conventions aimed at reversing the trend.  A robust afforestation programme must go beyond nominal and inconsistent measures.
