LaRouchePAC Friday Webcast – Matthew Ogden reporting:
Today we feature the keynote remarks by Helga Zepp-LaRouche to the “Food For Peace, Food For People, Food For Thought: The New Name For Peace is Economic Development” conference in New York City, cosponsored by the Schiller Institute, the China Energy Fund Committee, and the Foundation for the Revival for Classical Culture. The simultaneous occurrence of this conference and the G20 in Hamburg, Germany, at which Presidents Putin and Trump had their first face-to-face meeting, which reportedly lasted for over two and a half hours, pose a promising gateway for the consolidation of a new great powers relationship between the US-Russia-China as the basis for a new paradigm of peace and economic development.
The positive relations between China and Germany with regards to the development of Africa also indicate a positive shift towards the New Silk Road. However, as Helga LaRouche warned emphatically, now is not the time for complacency — everything could fall into place, but everything could just as easily all fall apart. This is the moment of decision, and many things are certainly moving in a positive direction, but we need much bigger breakthroughs in every respect on the road towards the new paradigm.
The African Union also met to discuss the New Silk Road, and China’s involvement in investment and infrastructure. Rapid sustainable agriculture was discussed at length, and was the theme of the conference that was held in parallel to the “Food For Peace, Food For People, Food For Thought: The New Name For Peace is Economic Development” conference. An agricultural delegation from the Midwest attended, including activists, representatives from universities, and the former mayor of Muscatine, Iowa. Also attending was former Governor of Iowa Terry Branstad who is the current Ambassador to China. The President of China, Xi Jinping, visited Iowa while he was a provincial governor, in order to learn agricultural techniques and best practices. China has single handedly stalled immigration from Africa to Europe by investing in hydro-electric plants, rail systems, and other infrastructure projects.
