 President Pedro Pires Congratulates President Obama, Nobel Peace Prize Winner

Praia, October 09, 2009

Dear President Obama,

The People of Cape Verde joins me to express earnest congratulations to Your Excellency on the occasion of the announcement of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

In my view, the international community has lately been enjoying an atmosphere of enhanced hope, dialogue and trust, thanks to some new policies that your Administration has been implementing. As such, I understand the Nobel Committee’s decision as a much deserved one, and a clear sign of encouragement for the United States of America to pursue, steadfast, the path of peace, security and partnership, in strengthening the foundations of multilateralism and cooperation between peoples. Cape Verde is with you in such a great endeavor.

Please be assured, Mr. President and Dear Friend, of my highest consideration and personal esteem.

Yours Cordially,


President of the Republic of Cape Verde

His Excellency
President of the United States of America
The White House

 CAPE VERDE is the 153rd Member of World Trade Organization (WTO)

EconomyOn 23 July 2008, the WTO welcomed Cape Verde as its newest member. Cape Verde started its accession negotiations in 1999 and ratified its accession package to the WTO on 23 June 2008, which was the final step in the accession process before it could officially join the WTO. Under WTO rules, a country becomes a member 30 days after national ratification. “Being part of the WTO will enable Cape Verde to continue its integration into the world economy,” said Director-General Pascal Lamy. Since 1991, the country has pursued market-oriented economic policies, facilitating foreign investment, fostering the private sector through privatisations, developing tourism, light manufacturing industries and fisheries. Cape Verde has also developed its transport, communications and energy facilities. Its main trading partners are Portugal, Netherlands, Brazil, Spain, Italy, the US and France. The biggest importer to Cape Verde is Portugal (EUR 116.79 million in 2007). Cape Verde's exports to Portugal were worth EUR 4.41 million in 2007.

 E-Government in CAPE VERDE: A success story

Global CompetitivenessAs outlined in the Information Society Strategic Program, electronic government is one of the pillars of the development of the Information Society in Cape Verde. The transformation of Cape Verde implies winning the battle of competitiveness and the modernization of the economy and the society. The Communication and Information Technologies (ICT’s) are a factor of Cape Verde’s active insertion in the global economy, helping to breakdown the barriers of our island condition so that the country may be tuned with the world, accompanying the major changes, and participate in the evolution of know-how and knowledge, be close to the centers of decision-making, detect opportunities and put them to the service of Cape Verde’s own development. The government’s bet on electronic governance is an imperative to improve the efficiency of the State, public administration, both central and local, thus strengthening the Rule of Law, since the information technologies help to promote transparency, accountability and democracy. A recent case study “Small States, Smart Solutions” just released by the World Bank during the Spring Meetings shows how Cape Verde has managed to overcome, through information and communication technologies, the handicaps of it size and isolation and reduce the costs and increase the effectiveness of public goods and services, and how to reduce the costs of connectivity with the rest of the world.
