How would you increase the interest on economical reforms in the Government of (I do not remember the name of the country, but it was one from Africa)?

2 Answers

I would lobby through stakeholder forums to the government and demonstrate how positive economic reforms have assisted e.g small businesses to grow- thus more taxes to the government,reforms reduce poverty- thus less burden to the government to deal with issues associated with poverty - thus more for them to use to develop infrastructure, create new areas for youth employment etc. Less

Trough a marketing/communications campaign that allow the Government to see the benefits of that reforms. They should understand the benefits for its Government, for its people, etc. And they should understand that the international community is going to offer them more economic help after that reforms.

Give us an example of when you came into conflict with someone and how did you resolve it?

While attending Lismore police station for information about the death of my son it has been the worst experience apart from loosing Adam, bullied intimidated threatened disrespect for my son who was a organ donor but that chance could have been taken away from the 4 people that received a transplant because of police negligence. the list of police involved is long and the level of disrespect gets worse the higher the rank is. We were not notified of the accident for 13 hours, it's not that we could not be found, it' because no one bothered, but it was okay for the police to tell the media before we found out, nearly 15 hours they could not tell us what hospital he was in because they did not know, thankfully after 18 hours we got to see him. We live less than one hour from the accident site and a bit over 2 hours to the hospital he was in. The sergeant at Kyogle said whats the problem you got to see him in 18 hours, Adam died from brain swelling, every minute of the 18 hours his brain was swelling, i said it would have easier on his mother to see him in a reasonable time while she could still recognize him. Their are some awful comments i have received over the last 14 months, all from police, his employer members of my family and total strangers.,BUT NOT ONE ANSWER FROM THE NSW POLICE FORCE. sick of typing.
