Africa: From High Hair to Status Handbags, Africa's First Ladies Use Fashion to Talk About the Past and Future

iUSfashion1By Halimatou Ceesay

BANJUL, Gambia, August 10, 2014 (The Point) -- Fashion we all know is part of life. A world without fashion is unimaginable because the world will look raw to all of us. Fashion plays its own part in the happiness of humans.

Fashion can be found in every place, events, our day-to-day activities, our mood and even the way we feel or get attracted to others.

Fashion is in every person, it just depends on the way we define it for our life. Fashion is embraced by all but you will all agree with me that it is so dear to the hearts of women.

China’s foreign aid: How big is it and what is its aim?

By Luo Jianbo and Zhang Xiaomin

CHINA, August 10, 2014 (ABSTRACT) -- From 2010 to 2012, China allocated a total of 89.34 billion yuan (14.41 billion U.S. dollars) worth of foreign assistance. This amount no doubt is much smaller than the official development assistance of some big traditional donors such as the United States. However, as a developing country, China has tried its best in this regard. There is no need to deny that, by providing foreign aid, China hopes to promote bilateral relations with recipient countries, and to enhance the economic and trade cooperation with them. But most importantly, China is committed to promoting poverty reduction and development of the recipient countries, so as to finally realize the goal of common development together with other developing countries. China is willing to shoulder its international responsibility.
