Growth: US Keen on Working with Africa

Obama_africa_1By Barack Obama*

WASHINGTON, July 04, 2013 (State Dept) - In our global economy, our fortunes are linked like never before. Growth and opportunity in Africa can mean more growth and opportunity in the United States. This is not charity; this is self-interest. That's why a key element of my engagement with Africa has been to promote trade and investment that can create jobs on both sides of the Atlantic. I believe we can accomplish that, because we've got an enormous opportunity to unleash the next era of African growth.

Trade in Services: Huge Potential

HailemariamDCHINA, July 04, 2013 (ChinAfrica) - Trade in services between China and African countries will grow rapidly. Compared to the 50-plus-year-old China Import and Export Fair (Canton Fair), the China (Beijing) International Fair for Trade in Services (CIFTS) is still young. But it has demonstrated its robust development impetus by promoting international trade in services in its first fair in 2012. During the five-day fair last year, 458 project agreements, worth a total of $60 billion, were made, including $11 billion worth of agreements revolving around international trade in services.
