José Maria Pereira Neves

Prime Minister of Cape Verde

José Maria Pereira Neves is a Cape Verdean politician who has been the Prime Minister of Cape Verde since 2001. He is a member of the African Party for the Independence of Cape Verde (PAICV).

José Maria Neves became interested in the politics and government of Cape Verde as a teen-ager.” “He was the leader of a nationalist youth organization during the country’s transition from Portuguese rule to independence and democracy in 1975.” Part of his superior education was in the Getúlio Vargas Foundation in Brazil.

It is important to remember that the so-called “New Africa” is made up of 54 countries in five regions. Africa is not a single monolithic whole. The only safe generalisation is that Africa is planning, managing and starting to finance its own destiny.
