Zambia's copper mining is now experiencing one of its worst periods. As the largest Chinese investor in Zambia, China Non-Ferrous Metal Mining Group has promosied their continual investment. The company has also built the Zambia China Economic and Trade Cooperation Zone(ZCCZ), which is the first Chinese built multi-facility economic zone in Africa. So far the ZCCZ has attracted around 50 investors with the total investment of over 1.5 billion USD to boost the country’s economic development.

In 2007 when China's Exim Bank unveiled a massive $6 billion mining deal in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, it completely rocked the normally-staid world of international development finance. The agreement, known as "The China Deal" or Sicomines, was among the first of these huge Chinese infrastructure-for-resources deals that are now commonplace across Africa. Ten years ago, though, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund were pretty much the only players that threw around that kind of cash in countries like the DRC. So when the Chinese came along with the Sicomines deal, many observers saw it as a direct challenge to the IMF's once unrivaled dominance of international development finance in places like the Congo. While a feared Chinese-IMF rivalry did not ultimately materialize, "The China Deal" did create a lot of problems. The IMF responded defensively, according to new research from Sino-Congolese scholar Dr. Johanna Malm at Roskilde University in Denmark. Fearing they might be pushed aside by the Chinese, the IMF opted to make it easier for the Congolese government to borrow yet more money, adding to Kinshasa's already dangerously-high debt load. Dr. Malm joins Eric & Cobus to discuss "The China Deal" and why the IMF's missteps in the Congo produced costly-consequences for an already financially-distressed government.

But in Africa, the debate is somewhat different: Africa's economic growth is being stifled by widespread power shortages and nations across the continent are hoping to harness nuclear power for peaceful development. So what challenges might Africa confront in this pursuit and just how viable an option is a nuclear powered Africa?

When it comes to Haiti, the media mostly show slums, deep poverty, corruption...etc... Yes, it is true Haiti has a lot of problems but not too many people seem to have a solution. Haitians are smart enough to get the country moving in a positive direction. However, we need a working model to emulate. We strongly suggest the Haitian politicians to study the Rwanda Model for Economic Growth. In addition, the Haiti politicians also need to study Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. Just like we did. The Rwanda Model consist of the following techniques: 1) Low Corruption 2) Pro Investment Policy Reforms (Foreign companies have to employ 70% Haitian workers, provide training and transfer of knowledge). 3) Special Economic Zone 4) Security (Being Able to Walk Outside at Night) 5) Regulatory Framework 6) Register Business in 6 Hours 7) Infrastructure: 24 Hour Electricity, Clean Water, Sewer and Sanitation System, Roads, Highways with Tolls. It is not safe to drink water from the tap in Haiti. The country needs to invest in a water and sewer system. 8) Performance Metrics and public administration educational courses and seminars for Government Workers 9) Accountability of moneys in each Governmental Department. Be transparent. Publish to the Haitian citizens how much money was received and how the money was spent. 10) Leadership and Clear Government Vision 11) Collecting Taxes, Tariffs and Fees 12) Agriculture Export and the Country Being Able to Feed Itself (For Haiti ORGANIC Agriculture is important vs Knowledge Base) 13) Decentralization 14) State-of-the-art Conference Center for the Region (able to receive business people from all over the world) 15) Tourism (Commercial and Eco-Tourism) 15) Property Rights - Allow the People to Own Land 16) Deforestation Solutions 17) Manufacturing 18) Technology Improvements - Telecommunication 19) Micro Lending 20) Minimize Bribery 21) Delivery of Services to the People 22) Human Capital Investment (No Natural Resources / No Land Concessions) Haiti has oil, gold, iridium, uranium etc... Unfortunately mining has negative impacts on the environment (e.g., increased possibility of earthquakes and soil/water contamination). Furthermore, will mining companies build Haiti's infrastructure??? Haiti's soil is very rich, the minerals are worth billions of dollars and theoretically Haiti can dig itself out of deep poverty by selling mining permits. But to what cost? There are other ways for Haiti get out of deep poverty and this is what we are trying to explore. Other countries may have a national plan for Haiti which may not be in our best interest. We need our own. 23) Universal Education 24) Universal Health Care (Haiti need at least one Level 1 Trauma Center and at least one Level 3 hospital in each of its 10 departments). A level 1 Trauma Center in Haiti should not be more than 130 million dollars USD and a Level 3 hospital with 300 beds should cost about 25 million dollars USD. So, under 400 million dollars USD, Haiti will have hospitals all over the country. The challenges will be the cost of equipment, preventing people from stealing the equipment and the cost of paying hospital employees. 25) Coordinating the army of NGOs in Haiti to verify if they are meeting their objectives (i.e., planting trees/reforestation - verify if they are being planted and if they are not being cut down again) How can Haiti raise money to build its infrastructure? a. Haiti does not need to do everything on its own. Haiti needs international partners to invest in the country. Haiti can offer incentives to businesses to come to Haiti. b. Fees, Tariffs and Taxes: Money Transfer Fees, Telecommunication Fees, Tourist Tax, Airplane Ticket Tax, Import Tariffs, Toll Roads, Blanket Yearly Fee on Diaspora...etc... Haiti can easily raise between 2 to 4 billion dollars per year. This is a Haitian solution which can bring 20 to 40 billion dollars in 10 years. For a small country like Haiti, in less than 10 years the country can have a decent infrastructure and will be at least out of deep poverty!!! In conclusion there are 3 main steps: *Emulate the Rwanda Model with some adjustments to fit Haiti's needs (such as focusing on agriculture, tourism, and a mixed/diversified economy) *Control Corruption *Raise Funds from Haitians Living in Haiti and the diaspora / Make it easier for investors to come in. LOW CORRUPTION AND UNITY IS KEY!!! ***NOTE: If we control corruption and follow Rwanda's Economic Model, we can have a different country in less than 10 years. As follows: Haitian money (Petro Caribe loan, fees, taxes... up to 2.6 billion per year can be raised), some foreign aid (1.4 billion dollar package from the international community has already been approved), and making it attractive for Haitian companies and international investors to come to Haiti. Can Haitians overcome its selfish mentality, stop fighting each other and work together to develop the country?

Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Thursday that China is willing to work with Argentina to make contributions to safeguarding the multilateral trading system and improving global governance. Xi made the remarks when meeting with his Argentine counterpart, Mauricio Macri, on the sidelines of the 10th BRICS summit held in Johannesburg, South Africa, on July 25-27. Unilateralism and protectionism are currently on the rise, said Xi, adding that emerging markets and developing countries are facing an increasing number of challenges. "As a sincere friend and a cooperative partner of Argentina, China supports Argentina's efforts in maintaining economic and financial stability and is willing to continue to provide assistance within our capacity," Xi said. China has full confidence in Argentina's development prospect and the future of China-Argentina cooperation, said Xi. The two sides should advance the joint construction of the Belt and Road, align their important development plans, expand cooperation in economy, trade, energy, mining industry and financing, promote trade liberalization and facilitation, and give full play to new cooperative models, Xi added. China supports Argentina in hosting this year's Group of 20 (G20) summit, Xi said. Macri thanked China for providing precious assistance to Argentina for overcoming economic difficulties and stabilizing the financial market. Argentina is committed to deepening the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries, said Macri. Argentina hopes that the two sides could boost high-level exchanges and expand cooperation in such areas as energy, manufacturing, aviation, investment, financing and tourism, Macri added. Argentina opposes trade protectionism and is willing to work together with China to ensure a successful G20 summit this year so as to promote international cooperation, Macri said. http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20180727/8086400.shtml#!language=1 Welcome to subscribe us on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NewsContent.CCTVPLUS Twitter: https://twitter.com/CCTV_Plus LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/cctv-news-content Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cctvnewscontent/ Video on Demand: www.cctvplus.com If you are in demand of this video footage, please contact with our business development team via email: [email protected]

The world's wealthy countries often criticise African nations for corruption - especially that perpetrated by those among the continent's government and business leaders who abuse their positions by looting tens of billions of dollars in national assets or the profits from state-owned enterprises that could otherwise be used to relieve the plight of some of the world's poorest peoples. Yet the West is culpable too in that it often looks the other way when that same dirty money is channelled into bank accounts in Europe and the US. International money laundering regulations are supposed to stop the proceeds of corruption being moved around the world in this way, but it seems the developed world's financial system is far more tempted by the prospect of large cash injections than it should be. Indeed the West even provides the getaway vehicles for this theft, in the shape of anonymous off-shore companies and investment entities, whose disguised ownership makes it too easy for the corrupt and dishonest to squirrel away stolen funds in bank accounts overseas. This makes them nigh on impossible for investigators to trace, let alone recover. It is something that has long bothered Zimbabwean journalist Stanley Kwenda - who cites the troubling case of the Marange diamond fields in the east of his country. A few years ago rich deposits were discovered there which held out the promise of billions of dollars of revenue that could have filled the public purse and from there have been spent on much needed improvements to roads, schools and hospitals. The surrounding region is one of the most impoverished in the country, desperate for the development that the profits from mining could bring. But as Kwenda found out from local community leader Malvern Mudiwa, this much anticipated bounty never appeared. "When these diamonds came, they came as a God-given gift. So we thought now we are going to benefit from jobs, infrastructure, we thought maybe our roads were going to improve, so that generations and generations will benefit from this, not one individual. But what is happening, honestly, honestly it's a shame!" What is happening is actually something of a mystery because though the mines are clearly in operation and producing billions of dollars worth of gems every year, little if any of it has ever been put into Zimbabwe's state coffers. Local and international non-governmental organisations say they believe this is because the money is actually being used to maintain President Robert Mugabe's ruling Zimbabwe African National Union - Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) in power. True or not, it is clear that the country's finance minister, Tendai Biti, has seen none of it. A representative of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change, which sits in uneasy coalition with ZANU-PF, he says he has no idea where it is going. "We have got evidence of the quantities that are being mined, the quantities that are being exported but nothing is coming to the fiscus .... All I know is that it's not coming to the treasury. So that is a self-evident question. It is not coming to us. That means someone is getting it. The person who is getting it is not getting it legally. Therefore, he's a thief, therefore she's a thief." Sadly, as Stanley Kwenda has realised, it is typical of a problem found all over Africa. The continent is rich is natural resources that are being exploited for big profits, but the money is rarely used for the benefit of the people. Instead it goes to line the pockets of corrupt officials who then often smuggle it out to be deposited in secret offshore bank accounts in the developed world. So who facilitates these transactions? And how and why does the developed world make it so easy to launder this dirty cash? In this revealing investigation for People & Power, Kwenda and the Ghanaian undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, set off to find out. Posing as a corrupt Zimbabwean official and his lawyer, their probe takes them deep into the murky world of 'corporate service providers' - experts in the formation of company structures that allow the corrupt to circumvent lax international money laundering rules. It just so happens that the pair's enquiries take place in the Seychelles but, as they discover to their horror, they could just as easily be in any one of a number of offshore locations (or even in the major cities of Europe and the US) where anonymous companies can be set up for the express purpose of secretly moving money and keeping its origins hidden from prying eyes.

Minister of Solid Minerals Development, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has revealed Nigeria’s plans to champion the African mining vision (AMV). Fayemi made the disclosure while addressing participants at the maiden National Mining Summit, with the theme, ‘Unearthing Nigeria’s Mining Sector’, in Abuja. Excerpt of his speech: The African mining vision (AMV) is by far one of the most promising instruments that unite the whole of Africa towards achieving particular objectives. It is Africa’s own response to tackling the paradox of great mineral wealth existing side by side with pervasive poverty, through building economic and social linkages that benefit Africa. For us in Nigeria, in view of our present realities we have found our bearing from the African Mining Vision and have domesticated its provisions in our roadmap for the development of the Nigerian mining sector Accordingly, one of the priority goals of our government is to position our Mining sector to play a greater role in sustainably diversifying our country’s revenue base, creating jobs, and fast-tracking industrialization. Similarly most countries in the West-African sub-region have since developed country-level strategies, and we have reports of the achievements that are already being recorded under the stewardship of my ministerial counterparts. The AMV prescribes integrating mining into industrial and trade policy at regional level, and encouraging collaboration and healthy competition among countries. We therefore consider it important to have a platform for bringing stakeholders in the sub-region together, to share ideas and compare notes on how to collaborate in making our resources work for our people. This is why our ministry has partnered with Afrocet Montgomery, working with Deloitte, to host CONMIN West Africa, in demonstration of our commitment to signaling the renaissance of our mining sector and to naturally take the lead in driving the achievement of the objectives of the AMV, collectively and at our country level. It is our vision to use this platform to place Nigeria prominently in the international mining calendar and beneficially attract greater attention to our country and sub-region.

The governance challenges of natural resource extraction are enormous. What can be done to improve natural resource governance? Stephan Wolters (adelphi, ECC platform) talked to Peter Eigen, Founder of Transparency International and Chair of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) from 2006-11. As a leading expert on the challenges of corruption, he provides exciting insights and evaluates success and failure of various approaches, including EITI. Interview transcript: "Generally I am very pleased with Chinese investments there, because it gives Africa more options. It has helped to raise the price of natural resources which makes it possible for Africa to grow faster, a pre-condition for escaping poverty. The Chinese often don't make their investments conditional e.g. on good governance requirements, which is a great luxury for some African leaders. The question is really whether the leadership in Africa has learned its lessons of how destructive and damaging bad governance was for it. I would say that many countries in Africa now have a leadership and a population that do not tolerate the same degree of corruption that we, the Western countries introduced in many of these countries. We should not forget that until the late 1990's, systematic corruption was allowed in our countries. In Germany, you could deduct bribes for foreign investments from your taxes. It very often distorted economic decision making and supported corruption, and was in my opinion the main cause of poverty and misery in resource-rich countries. So it is very hard for us to criticise the particular risk of corruption that comes with Chinese investment because they will answer that they never allowed their exporters or investors to bribe outside Chinese borders. Some of their methods like barter arrangements, however, are extremely dubious. If you say, "You allow me to mine all your copper and I will give you five billion dollars worth of roads, or railroads, or ports etc.," this is a recipe for disaster because each one of these projects is a very complex negotiation, which has to be prepared properly and often takes years. If you throw these two things together, it cannot work. Therefore, there are a number of activities that one has to watch very carefully, but I think this task is up to the leaders of Africa. I talked to the minister of mines of Ghana and he said "We have learned our lesson. We have seen corrupt deals in the past with our European friends. We are very careful now and compare the offers we have from China, Russia, Brazil, Germany, Canada, Japan, and we take what is best for us. We do not need conditionality. We use our own common sense, because we know that we owe it our people to sell our natural resources in a way that is sustainable, helpful and leads to real development in the country." In addition, in a six-part exclusive video interview, Peter Eigen provides additional insights to the questions raised here. We will be releasing one part of the series every Wednesday: • Part I: The resource curse: governance challenges of natural resource management • Part II: The beginnings of improving transparency in extractive endustries: the Publish What You Pay Initiative • Part III: Why was the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative set up with a relatively narrow focus on the flow of money? • Part IV: How does the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative provide added value for civil society? • Part V: Current developments and future pathways towards improved accountability in natural resource governance • Part VI: Is the dragon devouring Africa?

Can the policies that worked for India work in Africa? Question: What does Africa need? Rick Warren: Africa needs a hand up, not a hand out. The biggest thing Africa needs is good leadership. That's why part of the Peace Plan of promoting reconciliation, equipping leaders, assisting the poor, caring for the sick, educating the next generation -- you have to have a comprehensive approach to tackle all five of these -- what I call the global Goliaths -- the global giants of spiritual emptiness, corruption, poverty, disease and illiteracy. These are the five biggest problems on the planet that affect billions of people. I call them the global Goliaths. There are a lot of problems that affect millions of people, but these affect billions. And the first problem is spiritual emptiness. Billions of people feel spiritually empty. They say, "I don't know what I'm here for. I don't know if there is a purpose for my life. I don't have a relationship with God." And I think that's one of the reasons why "Purpose Driven Life" became one of the bestselling books in history next to the Bible. It's not a niche book. It's a question that everybody eventually asks -- "What on earth am I here for?" You put your head down on the bed, and you go, "Why am I here?" And then corruption. Corruption is rampant all around the world, but particularly in Third World or in developing world countries. And corruption is at a business level. It's at government level. It's at an academic level. It's at the church level. It's penetrated through society. And having been around the world many, many times, you can go anywhere and people are going to ask you for a bribe. And you just have to say, "We don't do that." And in the last 50 years -- I'm guessing this -- maybe the west has put $1.5 trillion dollars in aid into Africa, and the countries in Africa are actually worse off. Their standard of living is worse off than it was 50 years ago. It's like a sinkhole. Why? Because people were skimming it off and putting it in Swiss bank accounts. And you have these government leaders -- the Idi Amin stronghold types -- that are just . . . don't care about their people. They're not servant leaders. And so we have to teach them good leadership, good governance, at the same time teaching them self-reliance. While America was pouring trillions of dollars, or the West was pouring trillions of dollars into Africa, we gave almost no money to China, if any. And look at the economy there. I mean it's exploding, exploding. If money could solve poverty, we would have no poverty in America because we've spent trillions of dollars on government programs. This is where people have a hard time pegging me on which side am I on. Because I have the heart of a liberal, and then I'm compassionate. And I care about the poor, and the sick, and the injustice, and racial equality, and economic equality. I just happen to disagree with liberals in that the solution is not the government. If bigger government was the answer to these problems, we would have solved them by now. We've put trillions of dollars into government programs, into housing projects that are now laying in waste, things like that. You have to change the heart. Recorded on: December 11, 2007

Africa's "blue world" is made up of vast lakes, oceans and rivers. The African Union (AU) calls the "blue economy" the "New Frontier of African Renaissance" and there's been a lot of talk and forums focusing on it over the past year. The so-called "blue economy" is not confined to fishing and tourism; it also includes things like transportation, deep sea coastal mining and energy. Thirty-eight of Africa's 54 states are coastal. The island nation of Mauritius, for example, is one of the smallest countries in the world. But it has territorial waters the size of South Africa, and lying on the ocean bed are potential sources of metals, minerals, and oil and gas. A new offshore deep sea mining industry is already taking shape in Namibia, vacuuming diamonds from the ocean floor. Proponents see a sparkling future in the ocean, as onshore mineral deposits dry up. While the blue economy has the capacity to provide desperately needed jobs, the challenge is all about how to exploit water resources in a sustainable way. As efforts get under way to exploit the continent's ocean ecosystem, environmentalists are warning more research is required to shape policies. So what's behind the "blue economy" concept? Is it more than just the rebranding of marine exploitation? "The blue economy is about using and utilising ocean resources sustainably, without damaging it ... It's problematic but it's still a long time into the future," says Dr David Obura, the director of Coastal Oceans Research and Development in the Indian Ocean (CORDIO), East Africa. According to Obura, it's all about transformation. "We really need to transform the way sectors and countries plan among each other, and also appreciation by the economic and corporate powers that the value is generated from ecosystems or assets that can be damaged. And you need to manage them sustainably, just like you manage a hedge fund ... so you don't destroy it while you are exploiting it." The massive investment can come from "China or other sources as well but to have that money invested in ways that don't damage the assets." Not enough is being done to educate the masses on how to manage the continent's marine resources, according to Obura. "The sea is still behind other priorities in most Africans' minds and mentalities, from the countries down to the individuals - and we need to transform that. Awareness about climate change in the ocean connection, plastics and ocean pollution is leaping to the front in the last few years. We're trying to ride the wave and get that awareness and get the education systems also building that into the curriculum." - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/ More from Counting the Cost on: YouTube - http://aje.io/countingthecostYT Website - http://aljazeera.com/countingthecost/
