Trade Between Russia and Africa Below Expectation

RussWithLoveBy Kester Kenn Klomegah

ASTANA, Kazakhstan, August 30, 2014 (Buziness Africa) -- Interestingly, there are few Russian traders in Africa and African exporters are not trading in Russia's market due to multiple reasons including inadequate knowledge of trade procedures, rules and regulations as well as the existing market conditions. In May 2014, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov wrote in his article: "we attach special significance to deepening our trade and investment cooperation with the African States. Russia provides African countries with extensive preferences in trade."

CAPE TOWN, South Africa, August 29, 2014 (TMT) — Even while wearing nothing but a black satin bra and matching panties with a red heart on the reverse side, Fiona beams a confident smile.

African Endeavours in Chungking Mansions: Portrait of a Hong Kong Hub

iChungkingBecoming a success in Hong Kong isn't easy, but for many African traders the potential to earn big makes it more than worth the effort.

By Fredrick Mugira

HONG KONG, China, August 28, 2014 (CARP) -- The old couches, low tables placed in front of them, only amplify the smallness of the room where a 50-year-old Tanzanian lady is serving boiled bananas and chicken.

But despite appearances, this restaurant is a few thousand miles from any African shore. The room is on the 16th floor of Block D in the notorious Chungking Mansions of Hong Kong.
