The untouched islands of Sao Tome and Principe are facing a huge influx of foreign investment. Does this present an opportunity to the economy or a threat to the islanders' slow, steady way of life? Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures The islands are gaining a lot of attention from abroad. “Sao Tome is a poor country and when investors come they can bring us jobs and bring us money”, says Julio da Silva, a government official. There is a lot of potential on the islands that foreign investors are keen to exploit. Jacques Le Roux, manager of the Belo Monte Hotel, claims that “we use 20% of the island, the other 80% is still undiscovered”. It is hoped that the island’s natural beauty – beaches and rainforests – will also boos...
São Tomé and Príncipe, officially the Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe, is a Portuguese-speaking island nation in the Gulf of Guinea, off the western equatorial coast of Africa. It consists of two islands: São Tomé and Príncipe. This country is considered by many people as a "PARADISE"
Situated off the Atlantic coast of Africa, the twin archipelago Sao Tome and Principe was once the world's leading producer of cocoa. Today the island nation is promoting itself as a tourist destination and its numbers of visitors are, slowly, rising.
The islands of Sao Tome and Principe are hoping to expand their tourism industry. With their combination of pristine beaches and tropical rainforests, the government believes tourism could become a major economic earner. But environmentalists are. concerned about the impact rising numbers of visitors could have on the islands' precious biodiversity.
Commodity prices have been heading downwards in recent months - with oil,sugar,aluminum and copper all well below their peaks. But cocoa has bucked the trend - apparently confirming the popular belief that people turn to chocolate during an economic downturn.Cocoa grows best in equatorial regions - which produce about 3.5 million tonnes of beans per year. The island nation of Sao Tomé and Principe off the west African coast lives almost exclusively from cocoa exports. Production levels fell sharply in the mid-1990s but have since recovered. Today some 1400 farmers grow organic cocoa on the islands - a product that fetches a premium price in Europe.
Im Inselstaat Sao Tomé und Principe an der Westküste Afrikas ist Plastikmüll ein großes Problem. Principe versucht, der Plastikflut durch regelmäßige Sammel- und Tauschaktionen zu beizukommen: schon über 450.000 Plastikflaschen wurden gesammelt.

Consumer demand for organic, fair trade chocolate is helping to revive an entire sector of the economy in Sao Tome. Thanks to an initiative first proposed by IFAD, 1400 farmers on this island 230 kilometres of the west coast of Africa have switched to organic cocoa production and are earning more money as a result.

São Tomé was once the world's biggest exporter of cocoa, but a decade ago the global cocoa price crash destroyed the industry here and desperate farmers have been clearing the forests to find alternative ways to make a living. But then the rising global demand for organic chocolate changed everything. IFAD joined forces with French organic chocolate company, Kaoka, to revive the island's cocoa industry. And it looks like chocolate might just save this island.

Hi there, this is a personal first for me - well, the first time I've copied a signal from São Tomé and Principe on this frequency. As usual, the fabulous little Sony ICF-SW100 does a remarkable job with just the AN-71 antenna. It's a set-up that fits into your pocket! Recorded in Oxford UK on 09/07/16 at 19:14 hrs UTC. Thanks for watching.
I was awaken to what sounded like a bomb, but it was a thunder clap. The earth shook and rumbled for about five seconds. Sao Tome is a beautiful Island nation. I wish the world at large would turn attention to it. If I had a magic wand the people here would be more prosperous, have better educational facilities and opportunities, health care and jobs. There is something very wrong in the world when we see the wealthier nations in the world "help themselves" and help "non-African nations", but do very little with regards Africa but exploit its people and its resources and keeping the African people largely poor, wanting and controlled. Open your eyes and behold the subtle invasion and militarization of Africa by the West under the guise of humanitarianism. There are those who love to m...

United Nations - The remote island of Sao Tome used to be the largest exporter of cocoa. But in the 1990s, prices of cocoa dropped and the industry crashed. Due to worldwide demand for organic food, the island is once again becoming famous for its chocolate. UN in Action: Episode #1525 Script (Pdf): http://www.un.org/webcast/pdfs/unia1525escript.pdf
