  • Description

    MALI FOREIGN MINISTER JEAN-MARIE CHINE YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) HAD TALKS WITH HIS OPPOSITE NUMBER, M. MICHEL DEBRE, AND LATER MET REPRESENTATIVES OF FRENCH INDUSTRIAL GROUPS CONNECTED WITH CEDIMON, THE EUROPEAN CENTRE FOR INDUSTRIAL AND OVERSEAS DEVELOPMENT. M. CHINE HAS BEEN IN PARIS FOR A WEEK AND HAS BEEN OUTLINING THE PRESENT SITUATION IN MALI AND THE POSSIBILITIES OPEN TO FOREIGN INVESTORS.

    M. KONE HAS BEEN CONCERNED WITH INFORMING MINISTERS AND INDUSTRIALISTS OF THE SITUATION IN MALI SINCE THE MILITARY COUP WHICH OVERTHREW PRESIDENT MODIBO KEITA ON NOVEMBER 19. HE HAS ALSO BEEN DISCUSSING THE APPLICATION OF MONETARY AGREEMENTS WHICH WERE CONCLUDED BETWEEN FRANCE AND MALI LAST YEAR.

    SPEAKING AT A PRESS CONFERENCE IN PARIS ON TUESDAY, M. KONE SAID THE KEITA REGIME FELL BECAUSE IT WANTED TO RESORT TOO QUICKLY TO SCIENTIFIC SOCIALISM WITHOUT TAKING AFRICAN REALITIES INTO ACCOUNT. HE TOLD NEWSMEN THE FIRST TASK ON THE HOME FRONT WAS THE STRENGTHENING OF THE ECONOMY AND THOSE STATE COMPANIES WHICH WERE ECONOMICALLY SOUND WOULD BE RETAINED, WHILE THE OTHERS WOULD BE CONVERTED INTO MIXED COMPANIES WITH THE AID OF FOREIGN CAPITAL.

    DURING HIS STAY IN PARIS, M. CHINE HAS MET SEVERAL GOVERNMENT MINISTERS. HE IS EXPECTED TO RETURN TO BAMAKO SHORTLY AND THEN TO EMBARK UPON VISITS TO OTHER EUROPEAN CAPITALS INCLUDING BRUSSELS, BONN AND MOSCOW.
