Africa has an alternative to Europe


“A continent which has a real economy with tangible assets”, he explains, “in a world where the economy is tending to become virtual and where the financial system is based on the intangible. Yet Africa is real, with its population, its mineral resources and its land. It is high time that Europe recognized that it is the continent of tomorrow. Partners should change their approach. China, India – the BRIC group of emerging countries – have money and invest in Africa. For the first time, Africa has an alternative. “We are seeking a win-win partnership, on every count”, he insists, “Africa has something which Europe needs.”
