China’s Investment, Africa’s Forest
Chinese investments in African land use are growing fast. From small enterprises in forestry, agribusiness and mining, through huge infrastructure cooperation projects and contracts won by Chinese companies – in hydropower, port development, road and railway building – that gobble up forest and woodland. These developments can bring huge benefits to African economies and huge challenges to sustainability. One thing is for sure – they are changing Africa. But real understanding in both China and Africa, about what is really going on, is often weak - and those who can best help chart a sustainable course for these Chinese investments have been poorly linked. In 2013, IIED with partners launched the China-Africa Forest Governance Platform to tackle key problems in the illegal timber trade and seize opportunities for more sustainable Chinese investment in land-use sectors. The platform is a forum for projects aiming to generate evidence, strengthen capacity and dialogue, and improve policy and investment practice by Chinese companies in African forest land use. This 10-minute film tells the story so far. More details: https://www.iied.org/finding-green-path-for-china-africa

Chinese Investment In Africa
The world of global trade is changing in a way we have never seen before. Multilateral negotiations have cleared the way for mega regional trade agreements and the big players of the global economy are forming up into powerful trade blocs. (China is now the new kid on the bloc). China is a super power that no one can ignore, but everyone has an opinion about. China is now the second largest world economy after the United States of America. This means that china has regained the position it once held in the early 1800 as one of the world’s richest countries. It is only a matter of time before china surpasses the United States of America as the largest economy of the world because china continues to develop. Chinas’ journey from wide spread poverty to growing prosperity took 30 years. During this time china has become the world’s biggest exporter with the world’s greatest financial assets currently invested on every continent. The big question Is the china Africa investment a mutually beneficial relationship or doe’s one party get more than the other? This journey to modernization and prosperity requires so much energy and resources that china can no longer supply by itself. China must therefore import large amounts of agricultural products, raw material and energy which are then paid for with profits from consumer goods china manufactures and exports. This trade has made china the largest trading partner for Africa. Whenever minerals, oil or there is a possibility of getting fertile agricultural land, you will find Chinese business interests. In Africa it is the enormous fairly under exploited natural resources that china desires. Today china trades with 49 out 54 African countries, and China has quickly established itself. In most African countries where china has interests, it is the political elite who benefit from the investment and not the common people. In 2009 china surpassed the United States of America as Africa’s largest trading partner. We saw a total trade between china and Africa between 2009 and 2011 growing from 6.3 US billion dollars to 166 US billion dollars. China has been referred to us as the last colonialist hunting for oil and raw materials to feed its fast growing economy. It is a global belief that when the deal is too good think twice. China’s involvement in Africa is not without controversy, as conveyed by some typical headlines from the Western press: • “Into Africa: • “China’s Wild Rush”: • “China in Africa: Investment or Exploitation?” In much of Africa, they have set up huge mining operations, they have also built infrastructure but, with exceptions, they have done so using equipment and labour imported from China, without transferring skills to local communities. So China takes our primary goods and sells to us manufactured ones. As this trade continue are labour rights observed? The human cost of this daily adversity is vast and the economic burden of poor occupational safety and health practices is estimated at 4 per cent of global Gross Domestic Product each year.

Gold Mining and People's Dreams After Civil Wars in Liberia - Journey to Dreams Documentary
Liberia is one of the poorest countries in the world. It's economy mostly depends on foreign aids, directly on foreign investments and on exportation of natural resources such as iron ore, gold, rubber and timber. During the civil wars took place between 1989 and 2003 in Liberia, more than 250,000 people were killed. Actually I'm not talking about a very distant past. All these ended just 15 years ago. When the economy totally collapsed during the civil war, Liberia became the trade center for blood diamond extracted in Sierra Leone. Weapons used in the war were mostly financed in this way. In the forests of Liberia, tens of thousands of people are doing artisanal mining under very hard conditions. This is their only livelihood. Actually they just save the day at the risk of their lives. What connects them to life is their dreams.

China bets big on Guinea's bauxite - 08 Nov 09
Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe China is proving an important trade partner for the west African nation of Guinea. While Guinea's military rulers are facing sanctions from the African Union and others in the international community, China's recently committed to a $7bn mining and oil exploration deal. Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege, reporting from the mining town of Sangaredi, says Chinese investment in bauxite mining - which accounts for 95 per cent of Guinea's total economy - has come to the aid of an industry threatened by EU sanctions. The sanctions include bans on travel and the freezing of assets held outside Guinea by the military leaders, who seized power in a coup after the death of Lansana Conte, the president, last December. They were imposed after troops opened fire on September 28 at a rally in a stadium, in the capital, Conakry, where protesters were urging Moussa Dadis Camara, the country's military leader, not to stand in presidential elections planned for January.

The Husab Uranium Mine in Namibia is one of China's biggest single investments in Africa. The Husab Mine reportedly has a uranium reserve of 300,000 tonnes which is the third largest uranium-only deposit in the world. Analysts say the project is able to produce 7,000 tonnes of uranium oxide each year when fully operational. That will make it the second largest uranium producer in the world after the MacArthur River mine in Canada.

Copper mines in Zambia - Straight through Africa
Trade is better than aid for Africa. They say. In a journey through copper thieves and mine barons in the north of Zambia, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind that slogan. From a distance they look like ants, the hundreds of men digging holes in the rubble slopes of an old copper mine in Zambia. They are looking for copper ore in the walls of the enormous pit, without wearing helmets and without reinforcing the walls of their caves. Life-threatening, of course. But they find enough to live on. Is it legal, Bram asks. They laugh about it. No of course not. But the Chinese buyer does not really ask where they get their ore from. You just have to leave when the guards of the mine come. How different is it in a huge copper mine in full operation. Huge machines drive off and on. Sirens sound regularly, followed by explosions. Here, 300,000 tons of stone are moved every day, and the copper ore from it yields a profit of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. But it is a foreign company that raises that money. And if the productivity gets too low after about twenty years, the investors will move on. From the air it is easy to see how far-reaching it all is. The mine takes big chores out of the country and turns huge plains into a kind of lunar landscape. But other changes are also visible. Houses, schools, a golf course. Prosperity, therefore, emphasizes a mine boss. Seven years ago this was still a dull provincial town, and now look! A little further on the big changes are about to begin. There is a giant copper mine here, and for that an area of ​​no less than four hundred square kilometers is expropriated. The new owners promise economic prosperity. Did not a city like Johannesburg also start out as a simple mine? Naturally, people living in the area can not stay. They have worked the land for generations, but they can not show ownership documents. They have not been asked anything. They do get compensation for their houses, chickens and fruit trees, but not for the ground. "Everything under the ground is state property," says a representative of the mining company, "and that is what the state can rent out to us." Residents who do not want to leave are squatters who violate the law from that moment on. Even though they were born and lived there all their lives. Those former residents are moved to neat new houses outside the area. With toilet, and bigger than the previous house, but without land to grow food. Some of them seem satisfied with that. Most do not. 'In Africa, land has sentimental value. You are no one without land, 'says one of them. "So you're destroying these people. They will not pass on anything to the next generation. " Episode 6. Copper fever  For Africa, trade is better than aid, or so they say. On a journey to copper thieves and mine bosses, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind the slogan.

Chinese in Zambia - Straight through Africa
Forty years ago, the Chinese laid a train track through Zambia. Bram Vermeulen travels through the African country by train to discover how the relationship between these countries is now. Zambia and China are old friends. When the African country became independent in 1964, the Asians were the first to queue to lend a helping hand. Communist China, itself still poor, took the lead in the construction of a railway that ran through Zambia and neighboring Tanzania to the port city of Dar es Salaam. Of course, that was not only out of kindness; the Chinese saw trade opportunities in the area. More than forty years later, it turns out that the railroad ran into a grandiose failure that cost China a lot of money - you can read more about this in this story by Sean van der Steen, with beautiful photographs. However, the Chinese presence in Zambia has become indispensable, Bram notes. He comes across them along the train route. For example, Chinese people run a copper mine, breed chickens on a large scale and have large factories. Zambians work on this economic activity, under Chinese bosses. Not everybody is happy with that. Bram visits a village where an explosives factory has exploded. The Chinese owners had not taken it so closely with the safety regulations. The incident is illustrative of the working methods of Chinese in Africa: care for the employees is subordinate to the profits. Also in a copper mine, it appears that the working conditions are far from ideal, and that employees openly complain about their low salary. De opzichter van de mijn beklaagt zich op zijn beurt over de arbeiders: hij vindt Zambianen maar onhandig en lui. ‘We trainen al vele jaren Zambiaanse arbeiders. Er is een groot verloop onder het personeel. Ze gaan naar andere bedrijven zodra ze vaardigheden hebben verworven.’ Het zijn trouwens niet alleen Zambianen die met de arbeidsomstandigheden in hun maag zitten. Chinees personeel, dat letterlijk niet mag klagen, doet tegen Bram toch een boekje open. Het leven op een afgesloten compound, ver van familie en vrienden, bestaat bijna geheel uit werk en verplichte culturele activiteiten. Van integratie is geen sprake. Maar het is niet allemaal kommer en kwel. Ondernemende Zambianen vertrekken naar China en komen soms steenrijk terug. Een man die met een Chinese partner een textielbedrijf begon, leidt Bram rond door zijn grote huis. Zambianen kunnen in eigen land niet op tegen de Chinese concurrentie, zegt hij, en daar zou de overheid iets aan moeten veranderen. Het zou volgens hem veel helpen als buitenlandse ondernemers net als in China verplicht zouden worden een Zambiaanse partner in de arm te nemen. De vicepresident van het land erkent dat er problemen zijn. Chinese boeren verdringen de Zambianen, er wordt gesjoemeld met werkvergunningen, alle winst verdwijnt naar China. Werken is alles wat de Chinezen doen, zeven dagen per week, en ze eisen hetzelfde van hun Zambiaanse personeel. De oude communistische vriend heeft feitelijk kapitalisme in zijn puurste vorm in het land geïntroduceerd. Episode 5. A trail of Chinese Forty years ago, the Chinese built a railway through Zambia.

Zimbabwe diamond mining firm Anjin Investments denies smuggling diamonds to China
Anjin Investments, a China-Zimbabwe joint venture, have refuted Zimbabwe media reports that it is involved in smuggling diamonds out of the country. Media reports in Zimbabwe alleged that Anjin smuggled 3.7 million carats of diamonds worth $200 million to China. The firm however insists its operations are under supervision from the government. The firm is among those whose licenses were cancelled in February, after the government established the Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company, to consolidate diamond mining companies operations. The company has challenged the decision in court citing a breach of bilateral agreement between Zimbabwe and China. President Robert Mugabe recently disclosed that US$15 billion worth of diamonds were shipped out of the country, with Treasury receiving less than US$2 billion during the last six years.

Complex Connections: Ecological Impacts of Chinese Investment in Southeast Asia
As the world's factory, it should not be surprising that China has had to expand its search for raw resources well beyond its borders. Over the past few years China has become a major global investor into resource extraction industries—oil, gas, minerals, timber, and agricultural products. A major catalyst for this investment is China's Export-Import Bank lending, which reached $174.2 billion in 2009 alone, nearly four times what the World Bank lent in the same year. While much has been written about China's investments in Africa, Southeast Asia is also a major target for Chinese agribusiness, timber and mining investments. As a result, countries in Southeast Asia appears weak facing Chinese investors, giving agribusiness unprecedented economic concessions as large as 15 percent of their total land. Yet it is not only Asia, but the entire world ecological system that is influenced by China's role in the production chain.
