我見 我聞 我思


孔戴總統治國理念


最近收到了幾內亞孔戴總統手著之《非洲展望治國理念》親筆簽名的著作,介绍他早年參政和如何領導幾內亞爭取國家發展進步所做之努力。


憶及二O一九年九月中旬,孔戴總統首度訪問德州休斯敦,我們有幸在家中接待隨行之十七位部長,席間他告知外交部長欲任命我為駐休斯敦名譽總領事,並當場寫下他的手機號碼,要我隨時聯繫,數月後接到幾內亚駐美大使楊森電話,告知美國國務院已同意任命案,並且轉來孔戴總統之賀函。


多年來,我們在休斯敦成立的國際貿易中心,曾經接待過克林顿總统,許多非洲駐美大使並和萊斯大學貝克中心舉辦過美非經貿高峯會,和非洲各國結下了不解之緣。


孔戴總統治理几內亞已有十年之久,此次大選经过修憲得予連任,實屬不易,在他的著作中充分表達他對几內亞及非洲大陸之情懐。


我們已經擬就方案,諸如農業、教育、傳媒來支援几內亞之發展,希望疫情消除之後,能儘早到幾內亞拜望孔戴總統。


在我的人生旅途上,經歷過無數次不可能,這項外交任命是我非常榮幸去完成和接受挑戰的任務。





Vision Of President Conde’


Recently I received a book titled, “A Vision For Africa,” by Guinea’s President Conde’. He was interviewed by Francois Soudan and the main focus is how President Conde’ struggled for his nation and all of Africa. His vision for the future of Guinea is part of the African continent.


I met president Conde’ in the middle of last September in Houston, Texas. He came to my house for lunch with his seventeen cabinet members. We greeted him together with Honorary Consul General of Ethiopia Gezahgen Kebede that afternoon. Later he mentioned about an appointment for me as the Honorary Consul for Guinea in Houston. At the time I thought it was just talk. But later, very seriously, after one-half year later I received a call from the Guinea Ambassador Mr. Yansane from Washington D.C. He told me that the State Department had already approved my appointment as the Honorary Consul for Guinea in Houston. I was so very honored and excited.


In the last fifteen years we founded the International Trade Center in Houston, Texas. Our mission is to promote trade and cultural relationships with foreign countries, especially with Africa. We hosted many events, including the Texas African Business Summit at the Baker Institute at Rice University. We have welcomed many diplomats as well as President Clinton. We are so proud of our efforts to promote international relations.


Just last year President Conde’ was re-elected as the third-term president of Guinea. We are planning to visit him and talk about how we can help the country to develop agriculture, internet, telecommunication and educational projects.


In my life’s career in the media business, I faced many challenges But in this new diplomatic position, I will do my best to serve Guinea as my second country.
