African connections
17 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Cairo:  With a market of nearly 400 million people, total annual exports of $110 billion, and total annual imports of $100 billion, the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa is Africa's largest regional economic bloc. However, Egyptian businessmen attending COMESA meetings this year and held recently in Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo have been worried that the freeze on Cairo's membership in the African Union (AU) will damage its business prospects in the region and that the country is not making best advantage of its membership of the bloc. Amany Asfour, the first woman and the first Egyptian to head the COMESA Business Council, told Al-Ahram Weekly that the freeze on AU membership was not hampering Egypt's ties with COMESA members. Any misconceptions about Egypt in Africa, she said, were a by-product of European media prejudice and could be corrected by appropriate action.


Botswana’s experiment with diamond beneficiation – will it succeed?
17 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Gaborone: In Zambia the World Bank together with UKaid have argued strenuously that copper beneficiation is not do-able. In Botswana and South Africa the World Bank dispatched Professor Hausman in 2011 to convince governments not to beneficiate. But the idea that Africa will just continue to (efficiently) dig holes in the ground and export unprocessed raw materials making China, India and Europe rich from the processing is absolute anathema in most African capitals. The argument is so instinctively repulsive to Africans that it makes aging middle class African officials, who were schooled in beneficiation in European universities,  remember their liberation struggle days and start using long forgotten rhetoric about ‘economic imperialism’.


Case studies on leveraging private investment for infrastructure
17 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Paris:  The Aid for Infrastructure Investment work stream of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) is currently exploring ways for donors to collectively more and better leverage private investment for infrastructure. Part of this work will consist of carrying out case studies on developing country infrastructure with private participation to draw lessons-learned on the role of development partners in leveraging private investment. This paper provides an overview of infrastructure projects with private investment in infrastructure based on data extracted from the Private Participation in Infrastructure (PPI) Database of the World Bank. It also includes the Terms of Reference and project proposals for case studies to be carried out per region. The data analysis by number of infrastructure projects with private participation shows that two thirds of projects are supported by multilateral development banks (MDBs) only. The rest of the projects is split equally between joint multilateral and bilateral support on the one hand and bilateral support only on the other.

Corporate India struggles to crack Kenyan market
17 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Nairobi:  Tuesday’s disqualification of Olive Telecommunications from the list of companies competing to supply the Kenya government with laptop computers for schools and the impending exit of Essar from the local telecoms market have cast a dark cloud over the quest by Indian firms to expand their footprint in East Africa’s largest economy. The developments came a few months after Essar Energy - another Indian corporate giant - sold its entire stake in Kenya Petroleum Refineries, arguing that it was no longer feasible to continue investing in a facility whose technology is obsolete in an inhibitive regulatory environment.

Economic benefits of an efficient North-South Corridor: final report
17 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Pretoria: This report is the first update of the first report entitled “Economic Benefits of an Efficient North South Corridor – Strategic Level Analysis of Investments in the North South Corridor using HDM-4” published in April 2009. The North-South Corridor is a pilot Aid for Trade programme which is being administered through the COMESA-EAC-SADC Tripartite process that focuses on transport and transit issues. The North-South Corridor runs between the port of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania to the Copperbelt of Zambia and DR Congo and down through Zimbabwe and Botswana to the ports in southern Africa, taking in ‘spur’ connections through Malawi and Mozambique in the east.  The pilot programme aims to bring together the initiatives which are taking place along this corridor and identify missing links and activities so that they can be dealt with in a coordinated manner.
