Foresight Africa: Top Priorities for the Continent in 2013

Foresight Africa: Top Priorities for the Continent in 2013 | China-Africa issues | Scoop.it
Since 2010, the Brookings Africa Growth Initiative (AGI) has examined the top priorities for Africa in the coming year.
george.es's insight:

 Africa starts 2013 with hope and optimism. Africa has dropped its mantle as a “doomed continent” and has weathered several global economic crises fairly well. Today, the continent is a land of opportunity both for Africans and international investors. Many now see the region as “emerging Africa” because of the positive changes that have taken place and continue to take place across the continent

China Goes For The Gold As Huge Investment In African Miner Seen Likely

China Goes For The Gold As Huge Investment In African Miner Seen Likely | China-Africa issues | Scoop.it

By ELEAZAR DAVID MELÉNDEZ:

 

"China may have lost out in its dash to get the most gold at the London Olympics this summer, but the country is seemingly still running the race for gold where it counts.

 

"According to the Financial Times, state-owned China National Gold is bidding for a majority stake in African Barrick Gold PLC, a stake now held by Canadian gold miner Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:ABX), the world's largest producer of the yellow specie. The move is widely seen as an attempt by the government-sanctioned Chinese mining industry to go head-first into gold mining in Africa.

 

"Chinese companies have aggressively bid up African natural resource extraction projects in the past few years, in a government- blessed strategy to ensure the mineral-hungry Asian nation has future access to supplies. According to global intelligence firm Stratfor, Chinese companies have pledged to invest $101 billion in Chinese projects since 2010, of which 90 percent has been in mineral extraction and construction. ..."
