China Bashing & Foreign Investments In Africa
This article is another I believe by a man who has come to despise the west despite living there and enjoying the freedom of expression, rights and benefits of democracy, something I dare say he will not enjoy in China (or a chinese compound in Nigeria) and in many Arab countries and also in his beloved Northern Nigeria. When one defends there must be balance, honesty, sincerity and objectivity, to write articles blaming Israel and the west for most things but refusing to acknowledge the many faults of the arabs/palestinians and the chinese contradicts the moral values of decent writing. This man has never questioned or written ... market research, surveys and trends

China Invests Heavily In Sudan's Oil Industry (washingtonpost.com)
LEAL, Sudan -- On this parched and dusty African plain, China's largest energy company is pumping crude oil, sending it 1,000 miles upcountry through a Chinese-made pipeline to the Red Sea, where tankers wait to ferry it to China's industrial cities. Chinese laborers based in a camp of prefabricated sheds work the wells and lay highways across the flats to make way for heavy machinery. Only seven miles south, the rebel army that controls much of southern Sudan marches troops through this sun-baked town of mud huts. For years, the rebels have attacked oil installations, seeking to deprive the Sudan government of the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Buzz word: Diversification
The big talk on the economy is diversification. The Minister of Planning, Mary King is right when she describes our economy as �one horse�. Of course when that one horse breaks a leg we will have a broken economy. Our dependence on fossil fuels means we have all our eggs in one basket and now that the price has fallen we could find our selves back in the 1980s. So the big issue is how do we move to an economy that is being driven by many sectors (horses)? While economists are good at saying we need to diversify and may point to some high potential areas, they have little competence in finding those areas of opportunity and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
