中國-非洲高峰會

北京目前正在舉行中非高峰會,這同時也是 CNNBBC 等國際媒體的世界新聞。International Herald Tribune Chinese companies sign US$1.9 billion in agreements with Africa 報導:

The conference was held on the sidelines of a two-day forum attended by dozens of African leaders aimed at boosting ties between the two sides, as China, the world’s fastest growing economy, seeks to expand its access to Africa’s oil and markets.

除了大家都在談的金援議題之外,Int’l Herald Tribune 也提到對一般中非高峰會合作的批評:

President Hu Jintao pledged to double China’s aid to Africa from its 2006 level by 2009. Hu promised US$3 billion (€2.4 billion) in loans, US$2 billion (€1.6 billion) in export credits and a US$5 billion (€3.9 billion) fund to encourage Chinese investment in Africa.

“Chinese assistance to Africa is sincere, unselfish and has no strings attached," Premier Wen Jiabao said at a gathering of Chinese and African entrepreneurs held as part of the conference.

Possibly reacting to criticism that China’s aid to Africa might fuel human rights abuses or corruption, Wen promised to ensure that projects are “open, just, fair and transparent."

突尼斯(Tunis)的新聞網 Babnet.net 這樣報導

APA-Beijing (China) Beijing has been dressed up in the traditional Chinese red lanterns and billboards featuring typical images of Africa and posters depicting Sino-African cooperation in the run-up to the 3rd Africa-China summit due to open Saturday in Beijing, APA observes here Friday.

Banners carrying words of welcome line major streets, highlighting the summit’s theme of “friendship, peace, development and co-operation." in English, French and Chinese.

Big posters of different African landscapes, culture, civilisation and people hanged all over Beijing streets and changed its idle routine. “Africa — the land of myth and miracles," proclaims one poster, featuring an elephant.

正在舉行中的第三屆中非高峰會,有 48 個非洲國家參與。辛巴威總統在行前接受訪問,在 Allafrica.com 上面表示中國與西方對非洲援助的態度與方式不同:中國希望非洲成為一個團結的非洲,但是西方並不這麼希望,而是希望繼續宰制與剝削非洲大陸。

Cde Mugabe said the meeting was also coming against the backdrop of moves by African countries to harmonise their economic policies, to enable them to negotiate trade terms with the outside world with greater weight and authority.

He said this was something China supported, unlike the West, which opposed African unity to ensure its continued dominance and exploitation of the continent.

報導根據中國官方資訊,描述了大會以及中非合作論壇(FOCAC, Forum of China Africa Co-operation)的一些基本資料:

According to China’s assistant foreign minister, Mr Zhai Jun, 1 700 delegates from more than 20 organisations of the United Nations and African regional organisations and more than 1 000 journalists, including about 300 from Africa, have applied to cover the event.

The summit, which also doubles as the Focac’s third ministerial conference, will focus on “friendship, peace, co-operation and development".

It is a mechanism for collective dialogue and co-operation jointly established by China and Africa to cope with new challenges and facilitate common development. Since the launch of the Focac in 2000, two ministerial conferences have been held in Beijing and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

One thought on “中國-非洲高峰會

  1. 中國援助非洲只著眼於這塊大陸的石油及其他自然礦藏物,所以援助對象也是高度選擇性的。雖然中國援助對非洲帶來許多經濟利益,但非洲如果繼續靠著自然資源輸出,它永遠也難逃離經濟受宰制困境吧。

    非洲國家喜歡中國援助的重要原因之一,就是只要有利於中國的資源需求,他才不管這個國家狀況如何哩。像蘇丹境內Darfur區的種族屠殺,中國一個字也不會吭。

    不過,中國還是有所堅持的,那就是這些國家都得不承認台灣。最近尚比亞總統大選,搞不清楚狀況的反對黨候選人竟然說要承認台灣,逼的中國大使館出來說如果個這個人將來選上了,他們考慮不提供援助。當然啦,這個人也沒選上。
