Dr. Vladimir Antoy-Dansaux, dean of academic affairs at the Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College (GAFCSC), called the victory of U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden a victory for the world.
Indeed, Biden would have corrected United Nations organizations such as the World Health Organization and the World Trade Organization, which were under the wrath of Trump, and would have met the challenges of global governance on the ground.
Biden faces the daunting task of getting things back on track…, Dr. Antwi-Danso told the Ghana News Agency in Accra after the international media reported Biden as the winner of the election.
He noted that the President-elect of the United States should also strengthen the severely broken transatlantic alliance between Europe and America.
Dr. Antwi-Danso said that another challenge for Biden is to explore the relationship between the United States and countries like China and Russia.
Practically speaking, American leadership in global governance under Trump was dead. And Biden has the difficult task of bringing everything to life, he said.
He said that global regimes, such as the Paris Protocol, which took responsibility for the Kyoto climate protocol, and the nuclear weapons regime, which President Donald Trump completely rejected, needed to be renewed.
It also needs to be overhauled by Biden’s new government, he said: How does he do that? We’ll keep an eye on you.
Regarding the African policy of the Biden government, Dr Antwi-Danso said that nothing would change.
If we talk specifically about Africa, nothing will change, I’ve always insisted on that. The challenge for American leadership does not change American foreign policy. He (Biden) will continue to use it as a geopolitical card. If they want Africa, they’ll come, if they don’t want Africa, they’ll leave it.
So no one should think with enthusiasm that Biden’s victory means something new for Africa, he said.
Dr. Antwi-Danso said that Biden is known as a friend of Africa and is at the forefront of the fight against apartheid. He added that it is important that African leaders show the good side of the continent in order to attract investment.
Africa’s share in world trade is only two percent. If we raise it to 15%, 20% or 30%, America will pay attention.
Intra-African trade is only 14%. Is there anything we can do? This means that we trade with the outside world 86% of the time. Can we change that? If we do the opposite, it means we’re a player in the world trading system, he said.
Dr Antui-Dansaux said there are hot spots across Africa where insecurity is a major problem and called for change.
If we change this image, it gives the (future) Biden government a new hope to pay positive attention to Africa and not to come because… You have to save us.
Dr Antoy-Dansaux called on African leaders to learn the lessons of the American elections: Let’s not rejoice at Biden’s victory, we need changes in Africa – in politics and the economy.
