China and re-globalisation: Strategies for Africa

In examining the implications to, and designing the strategy by, the African continent; we must learn from the sources of China’s success: Population and market size (1,3 billion people), economic strength (GDP of US$11 trillion), a large natural resource base, world-class infrastructure, a highly technocratic national leadership, and most importantly, astute and explicit strategic thinking and economic planning. It is also prudent for Africans to understand that at the centre of all the Chinese global endeavours are Chinese national interests.

The best the African hope for is a win-win situation, not a free lunch or ride. There will be no handouts. It is strictly business. The win-win is not guaranteed, the African must work for it. We must negotiate better deals. The Africans must put their thinking caps on, lest they get massively short-changed by our good brothers and sisters from China. We must do the following:

We must not merely respond or react to China’s grand strategy to Africa. We must proactively design our own Africa grand strategy to the world, and in it, our Africa grand strategy to China. This strategy must be independently crafted by Africans, and clearly driven by what we want, and not unduly be influenced by what the Chinese are doing or their vision.

Next steps for the initiative

The success and effectiveness of the Belt and Road Initiative will depend on many factors. These include national and regional geopolitics and the long-term economic benefits of various projects in beneficiary countries.

It will also be important that non-Chinese companies, both public and private, are able to compete successfully for a significant portion of the construction pie.

But tension is inevitable, as has already been seen in South Asia.

China is working to complete a 6 kilometre bridge over the river Padma in Bangladesh for which it is providing over USD$3 billion loan. China is investing some USD$31 billion in other projects in Bangladesh. It also plans to spend some USD$60 billion on construction of ports, railways, roads and power plants in Pakistan.

The world will be watching as the Belt and Road Initiative unfolds – and all the players will hope the benefits outweigh the costs and are sustainable in the long term.

OBOR and higher education

Currently the OBOR initiative’s main activity in higher education is providing scholarships to students in countries on its route, to study in China.  Some 10,000 scholarships were available for students from OBOR countries last year, mostly from developing countries. China has also stepped up language training courses within China in Southeast Asian and other languages where OBOR projects are being promoted.  OBOR has also changed the role of Chinese-foreign joint venture universities “not as a mechanism to bring in educational resources [into China] but as a mechanism for going out – pushing Chinese educational programmes to those countries of the Belt and Road,” said Jie Gao, a researcher at the Centre for Higher Education Futures at Denmark’s Aarhus University.

Digital Transformation of Warehousing

A key link in supply chains, warehouses must grow rapidly in number and adopt emerging technologies to keep up with consumer demand. Over the past decade, the number of warehouse facilities that make use of WMS has grown from less than 30 percent to almost 70 percent.

These technology systems, however, are usually implemented on their own, or fail to exchange data with other software. The lack of application integration is often cited as the major barrier to effective warehouse management and cost optimization. By contrast, reports suggest that companies with fully integrated supply chains tend to perform 20 percent better than non-integrated businesses.
