President Konare of Mali stated to Prime Minister Koizumi, during his stay in Tokyo to attend the TICAD Ministerial level meeting in December 2001 that, ""At present, Africa has a golden chance, without precedent, to face the challenge of African Development with the most attention ever focused by the international community upon Africa"". All evidence confirms that Africa has never before received such paramount attention from the world - at least over recent decades - as what it enjoys nowadays. First, the year 2002 highlights the holding of two very important United Nations conferences focusing on development - the International Conference on Financing for Development held in Monterrey in March, and the World Summit on Sustainable Development, held in Durban in August/September. In light of the fact that the ""development problem"" is actually almost identical with the ""African development problem"", the holding of these two UN conferences should persuade the international community to address the African development problem more seriously.
