'Genuine' liberal policy in Africa?

Last week, Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, saw the 7th conference of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe, Africa and the Caribbean (ALDEPAC), where resolutions aiming at leading Africa towards the political and economic liberalism were adopted. Calls were also made for liberalism to act "as the cement of [African]development", all the while creating "a humanized market economy ".
Participants adopted the White Paper "Towards a Pan-liberal manifesto". According to this, only liberalism can enable Africa to start real political, economic and social development, while offering choice to each nation to decide on its own policy. To meet this challenge, the establishment of "African investment funds” using income from the explotation of natural resources has been proposed.
According to Louis Michel,  co-speaker of the EU-ACP Joint Assembly,  "we must find new resources for sustainable agriculture and rural development and deal with the rise in agricultural prices."
The emergence of a genuine liberal policy in Africa will lead, according to ALDEPAC, to  "access to essential services, including education, social welfare and health care", and will result in “a primary education with good quality, culture of gender equality,  good policy to faculty recruitment, promotion and training".
