Of course you can opt to stay in denial on that very fact. But it will
not change the truths and realities of the situation.
The majority that have supported this proposal appear to represent
legitimate business operations having a strong and well known business
footprint on the continent.
The majority that are opposed to this proposal appear to not fully
understand the realities of the continent's needs and appear to be
mostly having business interests outside the continent or siding with
folks that have operations mostly outside the continent.
(I am trying to write this as diplomatically as possible and as
frustrating as this may sound, it starts to make sense if the PDP is
restricted only to paying members given that outputs from the process
mostly end up directly affecting members and their businesses)
