Could China and Japan Work Together in East Africa?

By Clint Richards

CHINA, July 10, 2014 (Diplomat) --- On February 25 China joined the U.S., France, and Japan in signing a security and defense agreementwith Djibouti, as it seeks to further integrate with regional naval operations. Combined Chinese and Japanese inroads into the strategic port of Djibouti could be another exercise in antagonism, or a rare showcase of cooperation. They are both seeking to combat piracy in the Gulf of Aden and protect their burgeoning assets in East Africa. This is a rare instance in which both countries have a shared security interest, and could provide instructive for other points of tension.

Delivered in the midst of the Cultural Revolution, this gift represents China’s agenda to reach out even during turbulent times in its history. This expensive project also exemplified a major step towards enhancing South-South cooperation, which had been initiated in 1955 at Bandung, Indonesia.

South Africa’s Infrastructure: Where the Opportunity Lies

By Alexander Kurchin

MOSCOW, July 10, 2014 (Buziness Africa) --- One of the most enduring gains of the 19th FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa was the great improvement in the perception and image of the host country. From an investment standpoint, the championship was an even greater success as long as the overall capital investments exceeded 3 billion GBP.
