19 Oct AU discusses negative perception of China investment on the continent
AFRICAN Union member states want the union to come up with stringent measures to curb negative perception that China is slowly colonising Africa through its massive investment on the continent. The member states have expressed concern at the negative perception of Chinese cooperation with Africa.
The Members States are concerned at what they called bashing of Chinese cooperation with Africa from some sectors of the media and some western countries. The States voiced this concern during a forum to review some of the resolutions of the 3rd Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) that was themed a New Blue Print for a Win-win Cooperation and Common Development.
