IMF Staff Completes Visit to Central African Republic

September 14, 2018

End-of-Mission press releases include statements of IMF staff teams that convey preliminary findings after a visit to a country. The views expressed in this statement are those of the IMF staff and do not necessarily represent the views of the IMF’s Executive Board. This mission will not result in a Board discussion.
Economic recovery continues; growth projected to reach 4.3 percent in 2018.
Strengthening government revenue mobilization remains a priority.
A staff team from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), led by Norbert Toé, visited Bangui during September 7–14, 2018 to review recent developments and program implementation. The IMF supports the economic and financial program of the Central African Republic by an Extended Credit Facility (ECF) [1]arrangement since 2016. On July 2, 2018, the IMF Executive Board approved the fourth review under the ECF, bringing total disbursements under the arrangement to SDR 88 million (about US$ 123.7 million). Discussions covered the draft 2019 budget, structural reforms including the revision of the petroleum price structure, and the government’s strategy to improve public financial management and governance.


At the end of the visit, Mr. Toé issued the following statement:


“The economic recovery continues with growth still projected to reach 4.3 percent in 2018 and accelerate in the medium term. The projections are predicated on the restoration of peace, the extension of public services throughout the country, and a steadfast implementation of reforms. Strong and sustained growth is necessary to create jobs and reduce poverty.


“Based on preliminary data and information collected during the mission, the economic program remains on track. Quantitative monitoring indicators for end-June 2018 agreed with the authorities have been met, but social spending underperformed. Structural reforms are advancing, although with some delays. The team emphasized the need to step up social spending to broaden public support for the reform program.


“The team and the authorities discussed broad outlines of the 2019 draft budget with a focus on accelerating domestic revenue mobilization, consolidating the single treasury account, strengthening public financial management, and increasing social spending to tackle poverty. Given the impact of higher international oil prices on public finances the team urged the authorities to streamline the complex oil price structure. Strengthening government revenue mobilization remains a priority, including by taking decisive steps against fraud.


“Going forward, the team and the authorities agreed on the need to accelerate the efforts to strengthen governance and transparency and sustain structural reforms aimed at improving the business environment.

“The team met with President Touadéra, Prime Minister Sarandji, President of the National Assembly Meckassoua, Minister of Finance Dondra, Minister of Economy Moloua, the National Director of BEAC Mr. Chaibou, senior government officials, as well as donor representatives. The team thanks the authorities for their hospitality, strong cooperation and constructive discussions. The team is expected to return later this year to conduct discussions for the fifth review under the ECF arrangement and the Article IV consultation.”


[1] Central African Republic’s ECF-supported program was approved by the IMF Executive Board in July 2016. The ECF is a lending arrangement that provides sustained program engagement over the medium to long term in case of protracted balance of payments problems.

Three significant news articles have come out today which shows support for the Central African Republic on three different fronts:


More than 1,000 Central African military personnel trained by Russia - https://thedefensepost.com/2018/09/19/central-african-republic-russia-1000-milit ary-personnel-trained/

Central African Republic keen to attract Qatari investments - http://www.gulf-times.com/story/606538/Central-African-Republic-keen-to-attract- Qatari-in

AU chief in CAR to boost peace efforts - https://www.journalducameroun.com/en/au-chief-in-car-to-boost-peace-efforts/


AXM is closer now than in the last six years to getting back to Passendro, a multi million ounce gold deposit that was proven up between 2002 to 2012.

WGC’s China Chapter will boost gold sector: analysts

By Zhang Hongpei Source:Global Times Published: 2018/9/25 22:18:39

The new China Chapter being established by the World Gold Council (WGC) will bolster internationalization of the domestic gold market and offer more opportunities for Chinese gold enterprises to go global, said industry analysts.

The WGC, a leading world organization for the industry, announced on Monday at its annual meeting in the US state of Colorado that it has established a China Chapter, according to a statement the organization sent to the Global Times Tuesday.

The new chapter, which will be chaired by Song Xin, chairman of the China Gold Group, will enable Chinese member companies of the London-based WGC to engage more effectively with the rest of the board, said the statement.

It was announced on the same day that Shanghai-listed Shandong Gold Group will join the WGC board as a member, becoming the second Chinese enterprise on the board after China Gold Group.

"The Chinese gold industry has developed phenomenally over the past couple of decades, and China is now the largest producer and consumer of gold globally. As such, we are delighted that the WGC's membership is expanding, to better reflect the shape of the global gold mining industry," said David Harquail, chair of the WGC, according to the statement.

China's gold output reached 426 tons in 2017 with consumption hitting 1,089 tons, making it the world's No.1 country in terms of production, consumption and processing, Song told the Xinhua News Agency on Tuesday.

Jiang Shu, partner and investment director of Shanghai-based Oak Investment, told the Global Times on Tuesday that with China's upstream gold mining companies becoming strong, the establishment of the new chapter is a natural step in line with the development trend.

"More interaction on the same platform enables domestic and international players to have a better evaluation of the global supply and demand of gold... an increasing number of Chinese gold companies are 'going out' while foreign enterprises are quite interested in the domestic market," said Jiang.

"The new chapter is set to have a far-reaching influence on China's gold market, offering opportunities for domestic companies' upgrading as well as overseas mergers and acquisitions," Zhou Yinghao, an independent analyst of the gold industry, told the Global Times Tuesday.

The platform will enable the Chinese gold supply chain to play a bigger role and have a bigger say in the global gold market, Zhou noted.

Jiang said that more domestic gold producers would expand overseas via the new channel. That will hasten the opening-up of the Chinese gold market, which is currently led by commercial banks in terms of imports.

In 2001, the People's Bank of China, the central bank, ended controlled procurement and distribution of gold, and the precious metal began trading on the Shanghai Gold Exchange the next year. Since then, the market has achieved "remarkable development," especially because it has been a relatively short period, said Zhou.

Yet, related laws and rules, especially basic laws, need to be improved, Jiang pointed out.

"Gold products have become more diversified and their prices are more linked with the international market to meet increasing domestic demand," Zhu said.

In the second quarter of this year, China's total gold demand reached a three-year high of 332.9 tons, data from the WGC showed.

With the establishment of the China Chapter, the current low market price for the metal is likely to increase at the end of this year or the beginning of next year, which will bring many opportunities for the WGC's new China chapter, according to Zhou.

African Union adopts Sudan’s initiative for peace in Central African Republic

http://www.sudantribune.com/spip.php?article66341

September 29, 2018 (KHARTOUM) - The African Union has adopted Sudan initiative for peace in the neighbouring Central African Republic (CAR) said the Sudanese foreign ministry.

The announcement was made after a meeting held on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meetings in New York on Friday including Faustin-Archange Touadéra CAR President, Moussa Faki Chairperson of the African Union Commission, El-Dirdeiry Ahmed Sudan’s Foreign Minister, and Rwandan Foreign Minister Louise Mushikiwabo.

"The meeting discussed the developments in the situation in the Central African Republic and means of implementing the African Initiative for Peace and Reconciliation and linking it to Sudan’s initiative, which aims to achieve the same goal," said a statement released by the Sudanese foreign ministry.

Last August, the Sudanese government hosted a meeting for peace in CAR including the main armed groups, the Christian anti-Balaka militia of Maxime Mokom and Muslim Seleka armed faction led Noureddine Adam. The Central African government was not part of the Russian brokered meeting.

At the end of the meeting, the two groups issued The Khartoum Declaration of Understanding of the Central African Armed Groups where they said they are firmly committed to peace. Further, they called to consider the African initiative.

"The meeting confirmed the acceptance by all the concerned parties of the Sudanese initiative which has been adopted by the African Union on the same day by the Head of the Commission, Mr Moussa Faki, in the presence of the Secretary-General of the United Nations and all the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of CAR’s neighbouring states," further said the Sudanese foreign ministry.

Sudan which eyes developing trade and business with CAR said committed to curbing weapon trafficking between the troubled central African country and Darfur region. Also, Russian mining firms working in CAR use Port Sudan and Khartoum expects they positively impact Darfur region.

Looks as if the Central African Republic is starting to open up for tourism and business. Lots of changes over the last week since all the meetings between CAR officials, Russia, China, Sudan, African Union, United Nations, and other parties. Recently on Google there have been job postings for gold operations, travel Visa applications offered, and a map that shows just about all airplane terminals in the country safe and operational again. Keep in mind that Axmin Inc (AXM/AXMIF) has the only large scale gold mine in the country with a proven resource and ready to go back into production right away.

Article - France Urges EU To Help Stabilize The Central African Republic

https://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/en/french-foreign-policy/european-union/events/ar ticle/eu-jean-yves-le-drian-attending-foreign-affairs-council-15-10-18

CAR. At France’s request and amid the growing influence of foreign actors, the ministers will discuss the situation in the Central African Republic. The minister will call for strengthened EU action alongside that of the African Union, the countries in the region and the UN, to support the country’s stabilization and the restoration of State authority. This will include support for Central African domestic security forces in addition to the EU’s already considerably support for the Central African armed forces via EUTM RCA. All European partners must mobilize to help this country.

SUNDAY 14 OCTOBER 2018
Sudan’s FM to meet Deby, Touadéra over peace in Central African Republic
October 14, 2018 (KHARTOUM) - Sudan’s foreign minister will travel to Ndjamena and Bangui on Monday to discuss his government efforts to settle the armed conflict in the neighbouring Central African Republic.

Last month in a meeting held on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, the African Union integrated the Sudanese initiative to end the armed conflict in the Central African Republic (CAR) between Muslim and Christian militias that continue to destabilize the country despite the deployment of a UN peacekeeping mission.

In a statement released on Sunday, the Sudanese foreign ministry said Minister El-Dirdeiry Ahmed will hand over a message from President Omer al-Bashir to President Idriss Deby of Chad and President Faustin-Archange Touadéra of CAR.

The Sudanese initiative, which involves Russia also, provides to bring together the leaders of the warring armed groups to discuss ways to end the conflict and build confidence between the different communities in the country in order to repair social fabric.

The African Union has its African Initiative for Peace and Reconciliation, however, the mediators failed to bring the armed groups together.

Last August, the Sudanese government hosted a meeting including the main armed groups, the Christian anti-Balaka militia of Maxime Mokom and Muslim Seleka armed faction led Noureddine Adam.

At the end of the two-day meeting on 29 August, the two groups signed a framework agreement pledging to cease hostilities and to not obstruct free movement of persons and goods with the neighbouring countries and committed themselves to the African Union process for peace and reconciliation in CAR.

Khartoum counts on Chad which has good relations with the Seleka militia group to support its efforts to achieve peace in the landlocked country which has growing commercial relations with Sudan.

Central African Republic: Council adopts conclusions

https://www.consilium.europa.eu/en/press/press-releases/2018/10/15/central-afric an-republic-council-adopts-conclusions/

On 15 October 2018, the Council discussed and adopted conclusions on the Central African Republic.

In its conclusions, the Council underlines that the situation in the Central African Republic (CAR) is still very fragile and that the EU remains engaged in support of the country. The EU emphasises the need to continue working, through its various instruments, to help the CAR get back on the road to stability, peace and development and to meet the aspirations of its entire population for lasting peace and reconciliation.

The EU reiterates its support for the African Initiative for Peace and Reconciliation under the auspices of the African Union and the leadership of President Touadéra to reach a peace and reconciliation agreement, to create the conditions for the complete disarmament of armed groups and to strengthen State authority, while preserving the unity and integrity of the CAR.

The EU also stresses the importance of inclusive involvement of all institutions and all actors of Central African society, including women, youth and civil society. The EU calls on all international actors, especially those engaged in the CAR, to support the action of the government and the African Initiative in a properly coordinated and fully transparent manner.

The Council also welcomes the commitment of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilisation Mission in CAR (MINUSCA), in particular to support the CAR authorities in carrying out the security sector reform process and to help them restore State authority.

The Council emphasises that the security situation, including hybrid threats, confirms the need to continue to strengthen the Central African Armed Forces (FACA), and welcomes the request by the CAR for additional assistance for the Internal Security Forces, notably by means of civilian engagement. Ministers invited the EEAS to establish and deploy as soon as possible a civil-military interoperability pillar within EUTM RCA, tasked with providing strategic advice in this area.

The EU remains concerned by the humanitarian situation in the CAR and emphasises the need for the international community to mobilise in response to the humanitarian emergency, and reiterates its own ongoing engagement through the Bêkou Trust Fund. The EU remains strongly committed to the CAR, with an envelope of EUR 487 million allocated for the period 2017-2020.

Russia to send more military trainers, equipment to Central African Republic

https://af.reuters.com/article/commoditiesNews/idAFL8N1WZ4XZ

MOSCOW, Oct 19 (Reuters) - Russia said on Friday it planned to send additional military equipment to Central African Republic (CAR) and deploy 60 more instructors to train the country’s armed forces, escalating its most significant military foray in Africa in decades.

Russia donated hundreds of weapons and sent 175 trainers to CAR earlier this year to bolster the government’s fight against militia groups after receiving an exemption from a United Nations arms embargo.

According to diplomatic and security sources, many of the Russians in CAR are private security contractors and their remit has expanded into mediating negotiations among armed groups, securing mining projects and advising CAR’s president.

Russia’s activities in CAR are part of a wider push to re-establish influence in sub-Saharan Africa that waned after the Cold War. It has signed military cooperation deals with 19 countries since 2015 and expanded diplomatic and trading ties.

In one of its most extensive comments to date on the subject, Russia’s foreign ministry defended its actions in a statement against what it said was “a certain ‘jealousy’” by other foreign powers over Russia’s role in CAR.


“We believe this kind of position to be counter-productive, particularly in the current context, when constructive cooperation of all international ‘players’ and not competition or ‘zero-sum games’ is urgently called for,” it said.

“With the knowledge of a relevant U.N. Security Council committee we are planning to send to CAR an additional 60 civilian instructors and the second part of military purpose products.”

According to a confidential memo seen by Reuters, the Security Council’s 15-member CAR sanctions committee agreed last month to Russia’s request to send the 60 additional instructors, provided they coordinate with CAR’s U.N. peacekeeping mission.

But France, the United States and Britain placed a hold in August on further arms shipments pending confirmation that measures had been taken to secure the previous donation.

Estimates of the total number of Russians in CAR vary widely, from 250 to 1,000. The foreign ministry did not respond directly to questions about the presence of private security contractors.

CAR has faced near-constant armed conflict since 2013, when a mostly Muslim Seleka rebel coalition overthrew then-president Francois Bozize, prompting reprisals from Christian ‘anti-balaka’ militias. (Reporting By Maria Tsvetkova; Writing by Aaron Ross)

UN Summary Report For CAR (From June 15th 2018 to October 15th 2018) - In PDF Form

https://reliefweb.int/sites/reliefweb.int/files/resources/N1830975.pdf

Note - This is a report from the UN(MINUSCA) and does not detail the effort and support from other groups such as the EU(European Union), Russia, AU(African Union), China, USA, France, etc. Opinions have not been posted below as this is just one perspective from an individual writing the report. The key notes below are meant to show actual events compared to what the writer is actually talking about or speculates.

I have condensed everything and taken out all the important key notes of events that have taken place over the four month period.

Total - 21 Pages (12-21 are personal opinions and have not been posted)

Page 3

The African Initiative is widely recognized among all stakeholders as the ma in
principle framework for the peace process in the Central African Republic, although
its operationalization has taken time and it lacks the required resources. One year
after the adoption of the Libreville road map, the Initiative’s panel of facilitators
concluded its “listening tours” with the 14 main armed groups. At the most recent
meeting, held in Bouar from 28 to 30 August, the panel helped to harmonize the
groups’ demands, which were subsequently submitted to President Touadéra for
consideration by the Government. This represents an important preparatory step
towards dialogue between the Government and armed groups, tentatively scheduled
for November. The panel also consulted two exiled former Heads of State, Francois
Bozizé and Michel Djotodia. In July 2018, the Initiative, with support from the
Peacebuilding Fund, organized training sessions to prepare armed groups,
government representatives and political and social leaders for direct dialogue, with
the support of the Community of Sant’Egidio and the African Centre for the
Constructive Resolution of Disputes. The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality
and the Empowerment of Women (UN-Women) and the United Nations Development
Programme (UNDP) organized workshops and seminars to engage women and yo ung
people

On 28 August 2018, a meeting was convened in Khartoum with the three main
ex-Séléka factions and one anti-balaka faction, with the support of the Russian
Federation. That followed an earlier meeting in Khartoum on 10 July that only the
Front populaire pour la renaissance de la Centrafrique attended. The second meeting
resulted in a declaration, by which armed factions pledged their support for peace and
dialogue within the framework of the African Initiative.

In Bangassou, a local agreement was signed in April 2018, complemented by
the arrest of militia leaders, disarmament through community violence reduction
programmes, the deployment of units of the Central African armed forces trained by
the European Union Training Mission and intercommunal dialogue by local leaders.
Those efforts have produced a noticeable decline in attacks on civilians in recent
months. In Bangui, intercommunal dialogue in the city’s third district facilitated the
gradual return of people displaced following Operation Sukula. Local peace and
reconciliation processes in Markounda and Zemio have helped to reduce violence,

Page 4

(continued from page 3) increase freedom of movement and facilitate the return of State authorities. Similarly,
in Bouar, they have helped to eliminate illegal checkpoints, stop intercommunal
violence and secure a commitment from the armed group Retour, réclamations,
réhabilitation to demobilize and disarm as part of the disarmament, demobilization
and reintegration programme. In July, that group and anti-balaka leaders in Bouar
destroyed 1,652 weapons that had been collected through community violence
reduction programmes, symbolizing their commitment to disarming. The
Government, with MINUSCA support, also established eight new local peace and
reconciliation committees across the country.

Page 5

Out of a total of 7,087 verified soldiers of the Central African armed forces, 243
have been deployed in Am Dafok, Boali, Bouar and Moungounba without MINUSCA
or partner support. A total of 612 personnel trained by the European Union Training
Mission have so far been deployed in Bangassou, Bouar, Dekoa, Obo, Paoua and
Sibut, working alongside MINUSCA. The Central African armed forces has received
contributions from bilateral partners, including armaments, vehicles, communications
and other equipment. MINUSCA is responsible for the ad hoc supplies of fuel in
Bangassou, Obo and Paoua, which it then receives in the same quantities by the
Government in Bangui. The majority of the 3,232 police and gendarme officers
remain in Bangui owing to a lack of essential equipment and logistics necessary to
deploy new recruits throughout the country as planned (new EU & Russia support will resolve this)

Page 7

During the reporting period, several initiatives were undertaken to help the
Government to re-establish the rule of law and State authority and to provide services
in response to citizens’ request. MINUSCA and the United Nations Children’s Fund
(UNICEF) supported the organization of the 2018 national baccalauréat exams.
MINUSCA and UNDP worked with the Government to develop “Lisango 2.0”, a
software to facilitate the planning of civil servant deployments. In August, five new
prefects, including three women, were nominated to replace the retired prefects of
Bamingui-Bangoran, Basse-Kotto, Mbomou, Nana-Gribizi and Nana-Mambéré.

The Special Criminal Court rules of procedure and evidence were promulgated
on 2 July 2018. The Court is actively working, with MINUSCA support, to develop
its prosecutorial and case selection strategy. The judiciary resumed criminal sessions
in several areas, with support from MINUSCA and UNDP. The Bangui Court of
Appeal held its second criminal session from 16 July to 31 August, in which 15 cases
were heard, including several related to the conflict. In August, the Bossangoa High
Court resumed its criminal sessions, which had been suspended since 2013. However,
in general the capacity and functioning of other national judicial and corrections
structures, particularly outside Bangui, remained limited.

The Mission continued to support the demilitarization of prisons, including the
recruitment of 150 out of a total of 300 prison officers. The Mission apprehended nine
high-profile individuals using its urgent temporary measures and supported the
transfer to Bangui of 54 detainees, including anti-balaka leader Pino-Pino, who had
been accused of involvement in attacks against civilians and peacekeepers in May
2017.

Page 8

MINUSCA is supporting the Government’s launch of its disarmament,
demobilization and reintegration programme, starting in the west with seven armed
groups, and continued to expand community violence reduction programmes in six
locations for 5,100 beneficiaries. The Government continued to engage with other
armed groups to reach further agreements and extend disarmament and
demobilization to other parts of the country

On 4 July 2018, the National Assembly adopted a law establishing a High
Council on Security to ensure greater accountability and civilian oversight over the
security sector. On 24 August, the President approved the Government’s proposal to
reserve 10 per cent of new posts in the Central African armed forces and security
forces for former combatants, until 2021. At the request of the Government,
MINUSCA started to support the recruitment of 1,023 Central African armed forces
personnel, using quotas to ensure fair geographic and gender balance. In August, the
European Union Training Mission concluded the training of the third infantry
battalion of the Central African armed forces. On 30 July, the mandate of the
European Union Training Mission was extended until 19 September 2020

The 500 new police and gendarmerie recruits were scheduled to complete their
general training and start specialized training by the end of October 2018. MINUSCA,
through the Mine Action Service, continued to support weapons and ammunition
management by assisting the national defence and security forces with infrastructure
planning and refresher training

Page 9

MINUSCA and the United Nations country team, along with other partners,
have supported the Government in the implementation of the National Re covery and
Peacebuilding Plan for the period 2017–2021, to which donors have pledged some
$2.2 billion. The biannual review in June and July showed an increase in the delivery
rate of funds to 49 per cent, although disbursement remained slow. The Mutual
Engagement Framework biannual review highlighted the need to strengthen national
capacities at all levels and to improve national ownership of the Plan and Framework.
It highlighted the urgent actions required to achieve peacebuilding priorities,
including the swift adoption of laws and regulations to launch the preparation for
elections and further deployments of the Central African armed forces and internal
security forces alongside MINUSCA. Efforts continued for the development of the
sectoral strategies, policies, plans and frameworks that were essential for accelerating
the programming and delivery of the resources mobilized so far and for translating
them into peace dividends for the population

The International Monetary Fund reviewed the country’s Extended Credit
Facility Agreement and approved in July a disbursement of $32.1 million. A portion
would be used to pay 2003 salary arrears of civil servants and the gradual settlement
of domestic debt with private companies. In June, the National Assembl y adopted a
revised finance bill that increased social spending and public investments.

Page 10

As at 1 October, MINUSCA had deployed 11,170 military personnel, 3.17 per
cent of whom were women. That figure represents 95.88 per cent of the total
authorized strength of 11,650 personnel. The MINUSCA force currently comprises
10 infantry battalions, two quick-reaction battle groups, a reserve battalion, a special
forces company, a quick-reaction force company and several enabling units, including
a military police company, five engineering companies, a heavy transport company,
three level-II hospitals, a level-1-plus forward surgery module and three helicopter
units, including a combat helicopter unit. The Mission, with guidance from United
Nations Headquarters, is reviewing its capabilities and response procedures in order
to improve the casualty evacuation support

As at 1 October 2018, a total of 750 troops out of the 900 authorized by the
Security Council were operational. The remaining troops are expected to reach full
operational capability by end of November, with specialized equipment, including
reconnaissance and high-mobility armoured vehicles, as well as enablers, such as
engineering vehicles, logistics and medical equipment. MINUSCA will reinforce its
military posture with two highly mobile battalions, designed as joint task forces
composed of three companies, capable of deploying simultaneously and operating
autonomously, with integrated force multipliers. They will act as quick-reaction
forces, tasked to address particularly difficult security situations.

As at 1 October, MINUSCA had deployed 1,918 police personnel, representing
92.21 per cent of the authorized strength of 2,080. That number comprised 385
individual police officers, including 52 women, representing 96.25 per cent of the
authorized strength of 400. Ten formed police units and two protection support units
comprising 1,533 officers, including 102 women, were also deployed, representing
91.25 per cent of the authorized strength of 1,680. The transformation of the police
protection unit into a formed unit remained pending owing to equipment constraints
of the contributing country. Once addressed, the more mobile unit will deploy to
Berberati and Bossangoa

As at 1 October, MINUSCA had deployed 1,384 civilian personnel (1,151 staff
members and 233 United Nations Volunteers) representing 90 per cent of the total
1,524 authorized positions. Furthermore, 273 women constituted 23.7 per cent of the
civilian personnel, with 21.5 per cent in positions at the P-5 level or higher

The Mission continues to work closely with the Government to address a
number of violations related to the status-of-forces agreement, including the import
of critical equipment

Page 11

The Mission has strengthened its efforts to address performance in a series of
actions encompassing training, equipment, evaluation and leadership. The Mission is
serving as a pilot for the implementation of the Comprehensive Performance
Assessment System of the Department of Peacekeeping Operations, and is developing indicators to measure whole-of-mission performance against its strategic objectives.

Since the launch in September 2017 of the online military performance assessment
tool, MINUSCA has conducted evaluations of several units, which were mostly
assessed as satisfactory, and it is now implementing performance improvement plans
as needed, including on the basis of those evaluations. MINUSCA has been an early
adopter of innovative technologies in support of operations and force protection. It
has made progress in implementing the recommendations contained in the report on
the independent investigation by Brigadier General (Retired) Amoussou to improve
the Mission’s response to protect civilians, as well as the action plan to reduce
peacekeeper fatalities following the report by Lieutenant General (Retired) dos Santos
Cruz,1 which has already produced results, with six peacekeeper casualties in 2018
due to malicious acts, compared to 12 in the same period in 2017, although injuries
have increased to 34 in 2018 from 18 in 2017. MINUSCA has also made significant
improvements in personnel accommodation.


Notes - Pages 12-21 are personal notes and opinions and have been not been posted and these are the thoughts and expressions of one individual and do not take into the account the support from other countries and institutions (Russia, China, France, EU, AU, Sudan, etc). MINUSCA is a support group but does not have the full power or ability to change things. This is more in the hands of the other groups who have more influence and pull within CAR and work much closer to government officials

Central African Republic to begin disarming groups by year's end: UN envoy

United Nations (United States) (AFP) - Before the end of the year the Central African Republic will begin disarming illegal groups in the western part of the country, UN envoy Parfait Onanga-Anyanga told the Security Council Tuesday.

There has been progress in starting a peace process since a UN peacekeeping force was established in the CAR in 2014 to stamp out inter-communal violence in the country, Onanga-Anyanga said.

"This progress that we have made together makes me hopeful that we have laid the foundations needed to build sustainable peace," he said.

A half-dozen armed groups have committed to a national disarmament, demobilization and reinsertion program, Onanga-Anyanga said.

"The government will begin the disarmament of certain of these groups in the west of the country before the end of the year," he said.

French Ambassador Francois Delattre emphasized, however, that "the message to the armed groups must be clear.

"They must lay down their arms and join the peace process without delay and without conditions, and know that the violence they engage in will not go unpunished," he said.

Since 2013, much of the Central African Republic has been at the mercy of armed groups that plunder the country's gold, diamond and oil deposits, posing a formidable obstacle to peace and national reconciliation.

Many of these groups claim to protect Christian or Muslim communities, and often battle over resources.

Onanga-Anyanga pointed to the opening session Monday of a long-planned Special Criminal Court in Central Africa as an "important step" against impunity.

The court consists of 25 judges -- 13 from the CAR and 12 foreigners -- and will decide cases involving violations of human rights or international humanitarian law committed in the country since 2003.

One of the world's poorest and most unstable countries, the CAR spiralled into bloodshed after longtime leader Francois Bozize was overthrown in 2013 by a mainly Muslim rebel alliance called the Seleka.

Russia Pledges Continued Support for Central African Republic Security

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Russia plans to continue providing security assistance to the Central African Republic government in an effort to end a far-flung insurgency in which authorities in the capital of Bangui are attempting to wrest control of much of the nation from more than a dozen rebel groups, Russia’s Envoy to the UN Vassily Nebenzia said.

"Russia will continue to provide support to the CAR[Central African Republic] in reforming its national security sector, including in strengthening the battle readiness and battle capacity of the armed forces of the country," Nebenzia told the UN Security Council on Tuesday.

Nebenzia noted that Russian military experts have managed to achieve "significant results" by training more than 1,000 soldiers of the CAR army.
In addition, Nebenzia pledged increased Russian humanitarian assistance to CAR, in particular by providing medical services to the population.

On Monday, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced plans to send 60 additional military advisers to the CAR to complement 175 advisers dispatched to the country earlier this year along with a shipment of small arms.

Durable peace in Central African Republic achievable

http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2018-10/24/c_137553383.htm

Source: Xinhua| 2018-10-24 04:13:16|Editor: yan

UNITED NATIONS, Oct. 23 (Xinhua) -- A durable peace in the Central African Republic (CAR) is achievable with the action of Central Africans and with the help of the international community, said the top UN envoy in the country on Tuesday.

"Despite the persistent challenges, I am hopeful that we have now established the necessary foundations on which a durable peace can be built," Parfait Onanga-Anyanga told the Security Council.

Such an objective is indeed achievable provided that the region and the international community remain in solidarity with the collective support for the government and people of the CAR, said the envoy, who is also head of the UN peacekeeping mission in the country.

The general security situation has been brought under control. Democratic elections have been held and constitutional order has been restored. State authority is re-establishing itself in Bangui and beyond, he said.

But he warned that the country still faces many challenges.

Conflict factors remain and attacks against civilians continue, resulting in massive displacement of the population. Half of the country still needs humanitarian assistance, and the provision of such assistance is becoming increasingly difficult, partly because of the violent attacks on peacekeepers and aid workers, said Onanga-Anyanga.

Together with the Central Africans, the international community must help move the country from a phase of containment to one of transformation, where the dividends of peace can be felt by all communities and all citizens, he said.


The CAR has been in civil war since 2012, which is being fought along religious and ethnic lines, primarily between Christian anti-Balaka militia and Muslim Seleka groups.

CAR President Mentions Investment At World Investment Forum

https://unctad.org/en/pages/newsdetails.aspx?OriginalVersionID=1895

Highlights from article:

October 24th 2018

But stable regulatory and fiscal regimes are a precondition of attracting such investment, said leaders from Armenia, Botswana, Central African Republic and Lesotho

Open for business

Armen Sarkissian, President of the Republic of Armenia, said that his country had the most-advanced information technology sector in the countries of the former Soviet Union. It deserved to be “rediscovered” as a “core component” of the trade routes of the Silk Road, and had recently changed governments in a popular but peaceful revolution, he said. The country was a small but vital bridge between Eurasia and Europe and benefitted from its immense diaspora spread around the globe.

Mokgweetsi E.K. Masisi, President of the Republic of Botswana, said the new industrial agenda presented challenges to developing countries such as his. Governments needed to attract investment into digital infrastructure by updating their policy and regulatory regimes, he said. The so-called “demographic dividend” of an increase in the number of young Africans was an opportunity to seize concerning the new industrial agenda, he said.

With the proactive involvement of multilateral institutions, President Masisi said, “the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals is not as far-fetched as we might imagine”.

Faustin-Archange Touadéra, President of the Central African Republic, said the new industrial agenda was a technological agenda and one that was central to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Speaking on behalf of his country, he said that half of the citizens of the Central African Republic needed not just development aid but humanitarian aid, following a period of crisis.

However, the Central African Republic was ripe for investment, particularly in agriculture and fisheries, thanks to a favourable climate and geography. Investors could help, for example, with the development of the Oubangui river to help build better connections to neighbouring economies, President Touadéra said.

Motsoahae Thomas Thabane, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Lesotho, said his country was “open for business” and enhancing its institutional and regulatory frameworks to make it easy to invest there.

“As a landlocked country, investment is not an option but a must for sustainable economic growth,” he said.

China calls for more int'l support for peace efforts in CAR

http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1124298.shtml

Source:Xinhua Published: 2018/10/24 13:54:22

A Chinese envoy on Tuesday called on the international community to continue to help the government of the Central African Republic (CAR) with its efforts to build peace and stability.

The political process in the CAR has recently made progress while the security situation remains fragile. There are still challenges for the country to realize lasting peace and stability, said Wu Haitao, China's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations (UN).

China calls on the international community to continue to support the efforts by the CAR government to enhance national capacity building, and assist the government's efforts to maintain security and stability, deal with humanitarian situation and crises, and resolve the root causes of the conflict, he told the UN Security Council.

China urges parties in the CAR to put the interests of their country first and resolve their differences through dialogue and consultation, said Wu.

https://www.kitco.com/news/2018-10-18/Chinese-Portfolios-Need-A-6-Allocation-To- Gold-WGC.html

(Kitco News) - Investors in China need to allocate up to 6% of their portfolios to gold, according to the World Gold Council (WGC), which sees the yellow metal as minimizing the negative effects of volatility.

Chinese traders have had a tough year, with losses in both the equity and bond market spaces, said WGC Investment director Fred Yang.

“China’s leading index, the CSI 300, has underperformed the MSCI World Index by around 20% since 1 January 2018. At the same time, the credit spread between AA+ corporate bonds and the quasi-sovereign China Development Bank bond has ballooned to more than 200bps, highlighting concerns about prospects for domestic companies,” Yang wrote in October’s Gold Investment report.

The reasons behind poor performance include escalating trade tensions with the U.S., tightening Federal Reserve monetary policy as well as domestic deleveraging and tighter rules on shadow banking, the report said.

“The situation puts China’s investors in a difficult position. Equity and bond futures markets do not provide effective hedging tools, as they are comparatively shallow and restricted. And currency weakness is a further problem, particularly for onshore investors,” Yang explained.

In this kind of environment, gold might be the key to investors’ success, the report added.

And the right amount to allocate to gold is between 3% and 6%, the WGC said citing a study done by asset management specialists New Frontier Advisors that used optimization simulation and incorporated data from major asset classes from January 2007 to December 2017.

“The results were noteworthy, suggesting that the optimal allocation to gold increases from 3% to 6% as portfolios’ nominal target returns increase from 4% to 5.5%,” Yang wrote. “The analysis further shows that if a Chinese institutional investor makes a 6% allocation to gold it would reduce the volatility of its portfolio, increase the sharpe ratio from 0.46 to 0.54 and still keep the target return of 5%.”

But this target has a much wider application as well and can be used by investors from across the world, the WGC pointed out.

“Whether institutions are invested in US-, European- or UK-listed assets, research indicates that most well-balanced portfolios would benefit from a modest allocation to gold,” the report said. “Gold has a low correlation with other mainstream assets and boosts risk-adjusted returns. As such, it has the potential to be a rewarding asset for Chinese investors.”

October has been a very active month for the Central African Republic(CAR for short). The government forces (FACA) are now starting to move ahead with reclaiming the country as the European Union, African Union, United Nations, Russia, Sudan, USA, France, and other powers help support them.

The goal for Axmin Inc. is to get back to it's Passendro gold property which is just north of Bambari in an area called Ndassima. Exactly one month ago, the government announced that it was going to start sending troops to Bambari and start taking back the town, then likely push ahead North and secure Ndassima, thus giving Axmin the ability to go back. This has been six years in the making, but this is the closest the company has ever been to going back.

Below are articles that summarize what has happened over the last month. As well, keep in mind that Teranga Gold(TGZ.T) will be announcing results on November 1st which will also include their usual quarterly royalty payment to Axmin Inc. There could also be a possible update as to the other targets being mined.

Sept.28 - Central African Republic: Soon the deployment of FACA in Bambari
link: http://ndjonisango.com/securite/centrafrique-bientot-le-deploiement-des-faca-a-b ambari/
- With Bambari secured, FACA can move north and secure Ndassima/Ippy/Passendro, giving AXM the ability to go back
- Main area where AXM staff/equipment would be flown into

Oct 8 - CAR government works & citizens returning to Bambari
link: http://palmarescentrafrique.com/report-dun-mois-de-la-celebration-de-la-journee- mondiale-de-lalimentation-edition-2018-a-bambari/
- FACA also mentioned, so this tells me the town of Bambari is currently getting back to normal after years of turmoil

Oct 14 - UPC fighters weaponry taken away
link: http://french.xinhuanet.com/2018-10/14/c_137530852.htm
- So this is why the UPC pulled out of the October 23rd peace deal. FACA will not stand for armed guys walking around and will either take the weapons away, or take em out. UPC is the main rebel group that holds back Axmin from heading back to Passendro.

October 16th - 30 killed over two months in Central African diamond hub
link: https://www.timeslive.co.za/news/africa/2018-10-16-30-killed-over-two-months-in- central-african-diamond-hub/
- FPRC & UPC muslim extremists did this
- Stronger signal for FACA to push ahead sooner

October 23rd - Special Criminal Court In Central African Republic Conducts 1st Meeting
link: https://www.urdupoint.com/en/world/special-criminal-court-in-central-african-rep -462216.html
- Established court system to try criminals will help bring justice back to the country

October 23rd - Two CAR armed groups pull out of Khartoum peace process
link: http://www.sudantribune.com/spip.php?article66479
- The two armed groups that pulled out are the UPC and CDNS. UPC we know is due to FACA coming and taking back Bambari
Key note: "(We deplore) the low-level political instrumentalization of the Khartoum Declaration of Entente of August 28th which has been diverted to the sole benefit of the deployment of the FACA (Central African Armed Forces), a revanchist army ready to return to a fratricidal armed struggle," said the UPC.

October 24th - Central African Republic to begin disarming groups by year's end: UN envoy
link: https://www.modernghana.com/news/892711/central-african-republic-to-begin-disarm ing-groups-by-years.html
- Major breakthrough. Dealing with 8 groups rather than 14 will be easier

October 27th - CAfrica rebels issue ultimatum to government officials
link: https://www.yahoo.com/news/cafrica-rebels-issue-ultimatum-government-officials-1 93045042.html

October 27th - Central African Republic: Khartoum agreement still respected
link: https://africandailyvoice.com/en/2018/10/28/central-african-republic-khartoum-ag reement-still-respected/

October 27th - Central African Republic: the President of the National Assembly dismissed
link: https://africandailyvoice.com/en/2018/10/28/central-african-republic-the-preside nt-of-the-national-assembly-dismissed/

October 28th - Moscow Denies Reports of CAR Rebel Ultimatum to Withdraw Russian Mil. Advisers
link: https://sputniknews.com/africa/201810281069299191-russia-car-advisers-rebels/

Despite the apparent rumour that the rebels have told CAR representatives to leave, there is more support that this was fake news and things will proceed. FACA still needs to deal with the UPC, but they are much weaker now and have also had battles with the FPRC and Anti-Balaka over the last year.

French foreign affairs minister visits Bangui

http://www.africanews.com/2018/11/02/french-foreign-affairs-minister-visits-bang ui/

Philemon Mbale NSONGAN 4 hours ago

French Foreign Affairs Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian made a brief stop in Bangui, Central African Republic, capital. A place the minister had not been to since France pulled out its military in October 2016.

The trip comes at a time when the Russian presence is increasingly felt in Central Africa.
On an official note, the visit is to emphasize French commitment to the Central African Republic and French desires to pursue and strengthen its involvement around the continent.

Louis Magloire Keumayou, President of the African information club shared his views

"The Central African Republic currently needs partners, I think it cannot do without partners and a historical partner like France must keep and hold its place."

“The Central African Republic currently needs partners, I think it cannot do without partners and a historical partner like France must keep and hold its place. It has simply slowed things in recent years, which has led other partners to take over, notably Russia. And so if it wants to regain its place in both the defence and security of the Central African Republic, it is up to France to make efforts because its front row seat on the African continent is greatly been challenged, I think that is what French diplomacy has understood and is now trying to correct in terms of influence on the Central African Republic.”

After pulling out soldiers in 2016, France continues to support and accompany the elected authorities in the African state and appreciates their efforts to stabilize and develop the country in a sustainable manner. It is one of the greatest contributors to the financing of the Central African Republic’s development.

France promises money, guns for Central African Republic

https://www.expatica.com/fr/news/country-news/CAfrica-France-aid-weapons-diploma cy_2195352.html

2nd November 2018, Comments 0 comments

France will give the Central African Republic, its restive former colony, aid of 24 million euros ($27.4 million) and weapons, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian announced on Friday.

"France wishes to continue its historical partnership with the Central African Republic," the minister told journalists in Bangui after meeting President Faustin-Archange Touadera.

Le Drian signed aid agreements worth 24 million euros in 2018 for the payment of salaries and pension arrears, to develop regions near neighbour Cameroon affected by massive population displacements, and build bridges to open access to parts of the country.

He also announced that France would "soon deliver arms" to Bangui -- specifically 1,400 assault rifles for the Central African Armed Forces (FACA) established after independence in 1960.

"We are doing this within the strict, respectful, and transparent framework of the United Nations, in total transparency concerning the origin, the routing, and the delivery" of the arms, said Le Drian.

One of the world's poorest and most unstable countries despite vast mineral riches, the CAR spiralled into bloodshed after longtime leader Francois Bozize was overthrown in 2013 by a mainly Muslim rebel alliance called the Seleka.

That same year, the UN Security Council imposed an arms embargo on the country. The ban remains in place, except for weapons provided to the security forces with special pre-approval by a sanctions committee.

Last year, this committee gave the green light for Russia to supply weapons to the national forces.

But in June this year, France, Britain, and the United States blocked a request from Bangui for UN approval of Chinese weapons deliveries.

CAR Foreign Minister Charles Armel Doubane said Friday it "was time that France decided to make these assault rifles available to FACA within the strict framework of international commitments."`

The government controls only a small part of the country, with vast areas under the control of armed groups vying for power and resources.

Thousands of people have died, 700,000 been internally displaced and another 570,000 have fled abroad as a result.

The African Union launched a UN-backed mediation effort in July 2017.

On the eve of Le Drian's visit, clashes between armed groups in Batangafo in the north forced more than 10,000 people to take refuge in the local hospital, according to Doctors Without Borders.

Central African Republic: Blue Helmets and Government Forces Remove Rebel Fence in Bambari City

http://french.xinhuanet.com/2018-11/03/c_137577765.htm

BANGUI, November 2 (Xinhua) - UN peacekeepers from the UN Mission in the Central African Republic (Minusca) and Central African Armed Forces (FACA) soldiers stationed in the Central African city of Bambari (center) decided on Friday to open the doors in the northeast neighborhoods of the locality, by dismantling barricades erected by the elements of the rebel movement "Union for Peace in Central Africa" ​​(UPC) chief Ali Darassa, learned Xinhua Friday from local sources.

This dismantling of the barricades, the source said, was accompanied by intensive shooting of heavy and automatic weapons from the middle of the day, giving the impression of clashes between the joint FACB-Blue Patrol and rebel elements.

Not wanting joint patrols of peacekeepers and FACA in the town of Bambari, especially in the northeastern neighborhoods, UPC rebel elements erected barricades on almost every roadway in their neighborhoods in an attempt to adversely affect the free movement of people and goods, but above all the mobility of these patrols.

Last Wednesday, joint force patrols resulted in a confrontation that triggered the use of heavy, automatic weapons to repel the attackers.

However, Bambari was chosen as a pilot city "without weapons and without armed groups" by the government where there was a strong presence of rebel elements.

The unrest for the time, according to another local source, would have a link with the dismissal of the Speaker of the National Assembly Abdou Karim Meckassoua. Taking advantage of this internal crisis in the National Assembly, rebel groups are trying to do everything possible to boycott World Food Day (WYD), scheduled to be held in Bambari from 15 to 17 November.

Sudan’s al-Bashir invites Congo and Gabon leaders to CAR peace talks

http://sudantribune.com/spip.php?article66548

November 3, 2018 (KHARTOUM) - Sudanese President Omer al-Bashir extended an invitation to the Congo-Brazzaville’s President, Denis Sassou Nguesso and the President of Gabon Denis Sassou Nguesso to attend the opening session of Khartoum peace process to end the conflict in the Central African Republic (CAR).

According to a statement released in Khartoum on Saturday, Foreign Minister El-Dirdeiry Mohamed Ahmed Friday travelled to Congo-Brazzaville and Gabon on Friday to extend an invitation for the leaders of the two countries to take part in the opening session of the talks for peace in the CAR on 15 November.

Following his arrival to Libreville, Derdeiry met with Gabon’s Prime Minister Emmanuel Essoze-Ngondeton and handed him a letter from al-Bashir addressed to President Bongo. On the same day, he handed over another letter to the Congolese President Sassou Nguesso at his residence in Oyo.

"The Minister conveyed an invitation from President al-Bashir to his Gabonese and Congolese counterparts to attend these important discussions, pointing out that their personal presence will confirm the interest of African leaders in efforts to resolve the crisis in the CAR," said the foreign ministry.

"The Congolese president agreed to attend the Khartoum talks on 15 November," added the statement.

In mid-October, the Sudanese president sent his foreign minister to both Chad and the Central African Republic to rally support for the initiative to resolve a bloody conflict between the different groups of the central African nation.

According to the statement, the Sudanese top diplomat explained during these meetings the preparatory talks held by Khartoum with the opposition groups, which agreed to join the Khartoum peace process. He further briefed them about the positive indicators of the meetings.

The Sudanese presidential envoy also informed the two African leaders about the outcome of the meetings held on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly with the African Union officials, African leaders and regional and international partners to push forward the ongoing efforts to end the crisis in the Central African Republic.

Last August, the Sudanese government hosted a meeting for peace in CAR including the main armed groups, the Christian anti-Balaka militia of Maxime Mokom and Muslim Seleka armed faction led Noureddine Adam. The Central African government was not part of the Russian-supported meeting.

The divided groups signed the Khartoum Declaration of Entente on 28 August 2018 where they accept to negotiate a peaceful settlement for the civil war that erupted in December 2012.

However, Two of the five signatory groups of Khartoum Declaration: the National Defence and Security Council (CNDS) of Abdoulaye Hissène and the Unity for Peace in Central Africa (UPC) led by Ali Darassa distanced themselves from the agreement on 19 October.

But El-Dirdeiry said they are conducting intensive consultations and meetings to convince all the armed groups to join the process.
