Africa-China Poverty Reduction and Development Conference “The African Moment: Seizing the Opportunity for Transformational Development”
 

Thank you for the opportunity to be here with you and for the honour to address you. As Africans, this is an important moment to learn collectively about the nature of the developmental challenge to take stock of what has been achieved, and, perhaps even more importantly, what is yet to be achieved.

China is discovering Tanzania''s natural resources and there are Chinese companies buying millions of dollars'' worth of indigenous hardwood logs to feed China''s construction and furniture industries.
