AGOA: An Opportunity to Define Africa Legacy

Logo-AgoaBy Carlos Lopes and Kamal Dervis*

WASHINGTON, August, 30, 2013 (Buziness Africa) -- Everyone stands to gain if Africa can sustain and accelerate its progress in tackling poverty and finding jobs for its growing young population. The Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) rarely makes headlines in the United States. But the frequency with which it was raised during President Barack Obama’s recent trip to Africa underlines how important the legislation is seen on the continent both as a driver of progress and as a symbol of the US’s relations with it.

Chinese Money for Ghana’s Natural Resources: The Real Cost

By Samuel Amanor

China’s growing interest in Africa has resulted in huge capital flows into the continent. From multi-billion dollar investments in oil and minerals, to the influx of thousands of merchants, labourers and cheap consumer goods, China’s economic and political reach is redefining Africa’s traditional ties with the international community. China’s trade with Ghana has now eclipsed that of the US, one of Ghana’s principal trading partners. However, widespread illegal gold mining activities by Chinese merchants and businessmen in Ghana have drawn media attention and ignited debate about China’s heavy investments and growing interest in Ghana.(2) The nature of Chinese investments with Ghana does not favour Ghana’s industrialisation in terms of both capacity and jobs.

China's Dream, Kenya's Dream

JinpingKenyattaBy H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta

CHINA, August 22, 2013 (Buziness Africa) - Just like the scale of its spectacular success today, the magnitude of China's challenges only three decades ago was similarly great. The strategies that enabled it achieve success offer special lessons. I have a deep appreciation of the leadership philosophy you espouse both for China and internationally. It reflects your nation's proud tradition of diligence, courage and wisdom, and underscores your stated intention to promote world peace and stability through development of individual countries. I agree that international fairness must be secured through a strategy of equality, democracy and inclusiveness at all times, through all global conditions.
