Africa: Bringing Russia in from the Cold?

TimeforRussia

Around the world – from China to the US, and Turkey to Brazil – countries are stepping up their involvement in Africa. But what about Russia in all this?

By Kester Kenn Klomegah*

China, hungry for resources, but with many fingers in many pies; the US, slow to wake up to Africa's potential but perhaps now trying to catch up; Brazil, building links but doing things a little differently; the ex-colonial masters, still very much present but facing increasing competition; India, Japan, Turkey, slowly but surely entering the fray.

By Liu Jian in China

CHINA, July 20, 2013 (ChinAfrica) - In recent years, as China's presence in Africa continues to grow, so too have the scathing reports from the Western media criticizing China's presence on the continent.

Not only is Africa attracting the world and depicting that it is capable to contain them, but increasingly from operators in Africa itself. Africa’s economic structural reforms have shown a strong resilient following the global economic crisis in 2008 by rebounding back very quickly since the last decade and going forward, looking more boisterous.
