The President's Radio Address

July 21, 2001

    Good morning. As you hear this, I am in Genoa, Italy, at an 
important meeting of the world's most industrialized nations and Russia. 
Our focus this year is on the poor and struggling nations of the world 
and what prosperous democracies can do to help them build a better 
future. This cause is the priority of the United States' foreign policy.
    We're a wealthy nation with responsibilities to help others. It is 
also in our best interest to do so, because we benefit when we have 
strong and stable partners around the world who trade with us and help 
keep the peace.
    Our discussions here in Europe are centered on some great goals. We 
want to spread the benefits of free trade as far and as wide as 
possible. Free trade is the only proven path out of poverty for 
developing nations. And when nations are shut off from the world, their 
people pay a steep price.
    Despite trade's proven track record for lifting the lives of the 
poor, some still oppose it. They seek to deny the poor and developing 
countries their best hope for escaping poverty. Legitimate concerns 
about labor standards, economic dislocation, and the environment should 
be addressed and will be. But the developing countries have no need for 
protectionist policies that would condemn them to permanent poverty.
    Yet, trade alone is not enough. Wealthy nations must also work in 
true partnership with developing countries to help them overcome 
obstacles to their development, such as illiteracy, disease, and 
unsustainable debt. This is compassionate conservatism at an 
international level, and it is the responsibility that comes with 
freedom and prosperity.
    To advance literacy in the developing world, I proposed that the 
United States increase funding for our international education 
assistance programs by nearly 20 percent. And we will lead a new effort 
to improve basic education and teacher training in Africa. We've 
proposed that the World Bank and other development banks increase the 
share of their funding devoted to education and to tie this support more 
directly to clear measurable results. And we have proposed that up to 
half of all the funds provided by development banks to the poorest 
countries be provided as grants rather than loans for education, health, 
and human needs.
    Today, many poor nations are benefiting from efforts to relieve them 
of the crippling burden of massive debt. But debt relief is ultimately a 
short-term fix. My proposal doesn't merely drop the debt; it helps stop 
the debt.
    A final item of business at our Genoa summit is to launch a new 
global fund to combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis. The U.S. 
contributes nearly a billion dollars a year annually to international 
efforts to combat AIDS and infectious diseases, and we stand ready to 
contribute more to the global fund as it demonstrates its success.
    This is a time of great opportunity. What some call globalization is 
in fact the triumph of human liberty across national borders. We have 
today the chance to prove that freedom can work, not just in the new 
world or old world but in the whole world. Our great challenge is to 
include all the world's poor in an expanding circle of development 
throughout all the Americas and all of Asia and all of Africa. Such a 
world will enjoy greater freedom and prosperity and is far more likely 
to be at peace.
    Thank you for listening.

Note: The address was recorded at 1:55 p.m. on July 17 in the Cabinet 
Room at the White House for broadcast at 10:06 a.m. on July 21. The 
transcript was made available by the Office of the Press Secretary on

Remarks Prior to Discussions With President Jacques Chirac of France in 
Genoa, Italy

July 21, 2001

    President Bush. Mr. President, thank you for coming by. I'm looking 
forward to our discussion. The meetings have been very productive here 
in Genoa. We've discussed a lot of important issues and agreed upon--had 
some important agreements, starting with the need to advance trade in 
the new round of global trade discussions.
    We also understand that countries such as France and the United 
States must assume more responsibility, helping nations help themselves, 
particularly on the continent of Africa. We had a fantastic meeting last 
night with some of the continent's leaders. President Chirac was most 
eloquent about Africa and our responsibilities, and world leaders agreed 
with him, and I did, too.
    And as well, I'm very concerned about the violence. It's a tragic 
loss of life that occurred. It's also tragic that many police officers 
have been hurt, men and women who have been trying to protect 
democratically elected leaders and our necessary right to be able to 
discuss our common problems.
    In Washington, DC, Mr. President, I said as clearly as I could, and 
I'll say it here again, those who claim to represent the voices of the 
poor aren't doing so. Those protesters who try to shut down our talks on 
trade and aid don't represent the poor, as far as I'm concerned.
    I appreciate the work of the Italian Government, the mayor of Genoa, 
the good people of this country for providing a secure atmosphere where 
the G-8, democratically elected leaders, as well as leaders from Africa, 
Central America, Asia--leaders who represent the poor of the world could 
come--the poor of the world, by the way, who spoke very clearly and 
eloquently about the need for nations such as ours to open up our 
markets, nations such as ours to help develop education infrastructures, 
nations such as ours to forgive debt----
    President Chirac. And health.
    President Bush. ----and health, absolutely, and health. So this has 
been a very productive meeting. It's been productive because we've met 
and agreed. It's also very productive because it gives me a chance to 
continue dialog with a friend such as Jacques Chirac.
    People may not remember, but even before I became sworn in as 
President, in between the election, when it finally ended and my 
swearing-in, the first world leader I met with was President Chirac. I 
knew him to be a man of principle. He articulated his principles to me 
then, and he continues to do so, for which I am most grateful.
    So Mr. President, thank you for being here. I'm honored to have you.
    President Chirac. Merci. I must say that I absolutely share the 
feelings expressed by President Bush, share as concerns the efficiency 
of the organization of the summit, the efficiency which has been 
somewhat overshadowed by the events. But it was, indeed, a very positive 
summit. And it has enabled us to become aware of the problems of 
populations of Asia and Africa.
    Last night at dinner was very instructive. We have spoken with 
mainly African leaders who have decided to take greater control over 
their own destiny, and we have pledged ourselves to support them in 
their desire for sustainable development.
    Obviously, we have all been traumatized by the events. I shall not 
give any judgment, except to say that the elected leaders of our 
countries have to consider the problems that have brought tens of 
thousands of our compatriots, mainly from European countries, to 
demonstrate--to demonstrate their concern, to demonstrate their wish to 
change. And my last thoughts will be for the people of Genoa, who have 
been, indeed, as traumatized as we have by the events in the city.
    President Bush. Thank you, Mr. President.
