FOCAC a transformative tool: Sisulu

International Relations and Cooperation Minister Lindiwe Sisulu says the time has come for China and Africa to make FOCAC a transformative tool to change the lives of people and future generations for the better.

Speaking at the Luncheon of the 7th Ministerial Conference of the Forum on China China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), in Beijing, China, on Sunday, Sisulu said they need to utilise FOCAC as an important mechanism to strengthen efforts to address the various emerging challenges besetting the world today, specifically the rising nationalistic ethos, populism, unilateralism, protectionism and the emergence of global trade wars.

I believe that Africa as a continent on the rise, has a lot to learn from the Chinese experience and that FOCAC, as a platform for our continued closer cooperation, provides us with an opportunity to share these experiences to chart a path for Africa’s sustainable development and future prosperity.

We have seen the successes of this relationship; with African countries becoming more integrated and connected through the continued assistance of the People’s Republic of China.

We also continue to see an increase in exchanges of business people, students, academics and scientists between China and our various African countries, which not only contributes to the development of skills but also validates further the enormous value of our relationship, Sisulu said.

She said the Beijing Declaration and Action Plan (2019-2021) that both countries have adopted and proposed for the Summit’s consideration are a further true reflection of the growing comprehensive strategic bonds of friendship between them.

We believe that we should continually strengthen these bonds through the sustained deepening of political and economic relations within the China-Africa FOCAC framework, the Minister said.

SOWETO (SOUTH AFRICA)– Foreign shops remain closed in South AFrica’s Soweto, following days of violence and widespread looting this past week.

Residents went on a rampage on Wednesday, accusing foreign shop owners of selling expired food.

Ironically some looted the expired food. The unrest left four people dead and 27 arrested.

Bellal Hossain, a Bangladesh national, is among the few brave enough to keep their shops open.

He has been running his business for nine years and has been attacked four times.

At the moment we are also scared to do business nicely in this place because those people when you see them you can see how they are like an animal, the attacking is like that they attack us now, if it’s like that we are not going to stay in South Africa, we going to leave South Africa

With the shops closed residents are feeling the pinch, Sibusiso Zwane walked three kilometres to buy food.

It’s an inconvenience because we now have to walk long distances. I have walked all this way just to buy these three items. They were really helping us.

However for local businesses the closure means a spin-off in profits.
