Call for More GCC Political Reforms.
The South African rights campaigner, speaking to Khaleej Times after his address at the Leaders in Dubai Business Forum 2009, praised the Gulf countries for their remarkable people welfare measures and economic development, but said more democratic reforms were needed.
"They (GCC countries) should be willing to share more power and wealth with their people. They should go for more political reforms and become democratic. They also should not hesitate in giving more power to their women," Bishop Tutu said.
Earlier, addressing the two-day forum, Tutu said human rights and ethos applied to the corporate world as much as they are relevant to the world at large.
"You and I are created to be part of a delicate network of interdependence -- this applies to every community and team of which we are a part," he said.
