Well, certainly we don't wanna rely on others. We have been independent 28 years ago and are mature enough to be on our own economically. However, the question now is whether we are practically and geniunely self capable economically of managing our self without any help. And whether the timing is right.And whether the magnitude of the effect can be managable without adverse effect on the lifelyhood of the people.
On the practical outlook economcally we are not ready yet to say no to any foreign aid yet. unless we are economically independent, we will still be dependent on outside help.
I don't want to be seen here as too negative but honestly we don't have anything here to rely on if we say no to outside help. if we are serious now we should start diverting those aid money towards projects that will be the foundation towards economic freedom. Projects such as manufacturing industries,etc,etc,etc.
