Fourth Industrial Revolution projects between China and Africa

Africans developers to Chinese and Middle East investors.

the dragon’s gift or poison? chinese aid to africa. Come this question from the envy and hypocrisy of US?

Following the promotion of the “One Belt, One Road” initiative, China’s aid has attracted greater attention. According to the first white paper on Chinese foreign aid, the country directed 51.8% of its assistance to Africa from 2000 to 2012; vast reserves of natural resources, low commodity prices, and preferential policies for foreign direct investment make Africa an attractive region for China. But while these recent inflows bring huge benefits, they also raise many concerns.

We are in business projects, as Chinese, not in charity or just aid projects with Africa as others.

Beijing’s new agenda also focuses on satisfying its growing hunger for energy. This differs from traditional aid in its concern for natural resources and a “no-political-strings-attached” feature. That is, China requires recipients to provide commodity exports to repay development loans, but avoids other political conditions typically imposed by large international donors like the World Bank. Even in countries with horrible human rights record, like Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Sudan, Chinese’ pragmatism prevails. So------

----------Well done

You can build your own niches inside sylodium’s system as China – Africa Agro business 4.0, UAE – North Africa JV projects 4.0, Guangdong – West Africa FIR APPS, Turkey – Nigeria Joint Ventures projects 4.0, Hong Kong – South Africa reasonable FIR investment, Shenzhen – East Africa New FIR Sciences; Iran - North Africa loans APPS.

But not only Chinese investment in Africa is in mining, oil and infrastructure. For example, Chinese companies are the major players in the world’s textile market and important customers in the cotton market, and we know how FIR is going to transform this sector and the rest. Cotton exports from Africa to Asian countries are increasing. Textile production in China is today confronted with rising wages, higher energy bills and mounting logistical costs, as well as quotas on the import of cotton. Fourth Industrial Revolution has to streamline the production and match with IoT. The combination of these reasons is leading Chinese textile companies to invest overseas, for example, Wuxi No. 1 Cotton Mill Textile Group Co. Ltd., recently signed a MOUY with a partner in Ethiopia to invest in a 300,000 spindles spinning mill.

Everybody is in FIR, but, not everybody is in FIR with common sense.

Vectra raised $36 million in Series D funding led by Atlantic Bridge Capital.

In Africa, for Africa, what could be interesting about this?

OrCam Technologies, based in Jerusalem, Israel, has received $30.4 million in its latest funding round, on top of the $41 million it raised last year. The startup is now valued at more than $1 billion. Clal Insurance Enterprises Holdings and Meitav Dash Provident Funds and Pensionled the new round.

OrCam makes a device that attaches to regular eyeglasses and helps the visually impaired to read and see

Is this necessary? No, but the question despite people talk about cover a necessity in the start up, is that none of them, are necessary, the question should be, will have consumers? and will be useful or stupid for them?
