"The Assises du Développement Durable de l'Océan Indien represent this new opportunity to transform our environmental issues into business and development opportunities for all stakeholders.
It is in this perspective that we have engaged the Malagasy government in an active collaboration within the framework of this initiative, because it allows the private sector to align itself with the principles of sustainability of investments, which are now unavoidable.
The ADD-OI is also this gateway to strengthening the historical links between our islands through the sharing of skills, technology transfers, the transversality of our projects and the strengthening of our diplomatic relations. "
I wish you all an excellent conference.
H.E. Andry RAJOELINA President of the Republic
