Africa: Europe and China can cooperate

As both Europe and China are turning their eyes to Africa, they can join hands to help the most less-developed continent to develop economy and address migration issues at the same time. In recent days Africa is receiving worldwide attention with several events. Accompanied by a business delegation, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was travelling this week to Senegal, Ghana and Nigeria, focusing on development aid and illegal migration. In Ghana on Thursday she called for German support in Africa's infrastructure and energy to give hope to young people, so that they did not make the dangerous way to Europe. Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Theresa May, for the first time, was also visiting South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya, accompanied by a 29-strong business delegation. On Tuesday in a speech in Cape Town, a port city on South Africa's southwest coast, May pledged 4 billion British pounds (5.2 billion U.S. dollars) in support for African economies, to create jobs for young people. And her ambition, as she said before the trip, was for Britain to be the biggest G7 investor in Africa by 2022. While a few days later, on Sept. 3 and 4, the summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) will be held in Beijing, China. A number of African leaders and the chairman of the African Union are expected there. As Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the summit aims to build closer China-Africa community of shared future, further dovetail China's Belt and Road Initiative with African development, set a new path for a higher level of China-Africa cooperation, and deepen people-to-people exchanges.
