Wir haben viele Wünsche an die Entwicklungszusammenarbeit. Viele sind widersprüchlich und nicht alle sind realistisch. Setzen wir mutig klare Ziele und diskutieren Zielkonflikte auf offene Weise! Sonst kommt es nachher zu unangenehmen Überraschungen.
Promoting Sustainable Development in China-France Cooperation with Africa: A 2 Billion € joint investment fund
France and China have officially established a cooperation agreement on third-country investment in November 2016. Its flagship programme is a joint investment fund. This blog argues that one essential precondition for a successful cooperation is a good understanding of third country’s domestic needs and the identification of complementarities of Sino-French joint Investments in Africa. I take Morocco as an example to illustrate that France and China may have comparative advantages that can contribute to accelerating Morocco’s implementation of renewable energy, a national objective that requires substantial financial support.
China and Germany have developed a remarkable bilateral relationship over many years. Although China still needs support from Germany in many areas, it is now time for China and Germany to build a new partnership via development cooperation modalities to contribute to global sustainable development.
