SUPPORTING IMPROVED U.S. POLICY TOWARD AFRICA

WHEREAS, many of the nations of Sub-Saharan Africa are making great strides toward democratization and economic self-sufficiency; and

WHEREAS, many of these nations have benefitted from the humanitarian aid and loans they have received from the United States over the past several decades; and

WHEREAS, many of these nations have accumulated high debt balances as a result of the loans they have accepted and are paying high percentages of their annual gross national product for debt service; and

WHEREAS, The United States Conference of Mayors has repeatedly called on the United States Congress and the Administration to redouble efforts to change United States policy toward Africa,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that The United States Conference of Mayors reaffirms its support for changes in U.S. policy toward Africa with emphasis on debt reduction, increased trade and better cultural relations with the continent of Africa.
