Buhari arrives China for summit

Uhuru in China for trade talks days after hosting UK PM Theresa May

"Established 18 years ago, FOCAC has led worldwide cooperation with Africa and has become a significant marker of South-South cooperation", said Li Dan, director of Africa Studies Center of China Foreign Affairs University.

The announcement included new measures, which were implemented from 2016 to 2018, and were aimed at addressing the three bottlenecks in Africa that are hampering development in the continent: poor infrastructure, lack of skilled personnel and lack of capital sources.

Chinese state-owned companies have aggressively pursued large investments in Africa, whose vast resources have helped fuel China's transformation into an economic powerhouse.

China will extend a total of 60 billion USA dollars of financing to Africa, Chinese President Xi Jinping announced Monday.

"It's unreasonable that money coming out of Western countries is praised as good and sweet, while coming out of China it's sinister and a trap", she said.

Some Chinese manufacturers are expanding to Africa, but the bulk of Chinese investment goes into mining or construction of roads and other infrastructure.

"Another perspective... is that those criticising China on debt give too little", said Kagame in an interview with the official Xinhua news agency.

Presidents and heads of government across Africa are already in or arriving in the Chinese city of Beijing for a high-level summit hosted by the Chinese government. China's investments in Africa have also grown significantly.

Beijing is increasingly facing criticism over its debt-heavy projects overseas.

Africa is a vital front in Xi's fight against such skepticism, receiving $12BN of Chinese lending in 2015, compared with just over $100M in 2000, according to data from the China-Africa Research Initiative.

Beijing's relations with African nations has been generally positive, but the impact of some of China's deals in the region has raised concerns. "Resources for our cooperation are not to be spent on any vanity projects but in places where they count the most", he said.

President Museveni on arrival held bilateral talks with his Kenyan counterpart, Mr Uhuru Kenyatta, on issues of mutual interest between the two countries.

In the latest manifestation of growing communication between the Chinese and African people, a group of 169 Kenyan students, who have received Chinese scholarships, are set to depart for different cities and universities across the Asian nation to further their studies.

The summit, scheduled for September 3-4, aims to build a closer China-Africa community with a 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.

As part of bolstering its soft power capacity, China has prioritised people-to-people diplomacy, providing scholarships and opening more than 80 Confucius Institutes in 41 African countries.
