africa in beijng sept 2018 and other critical summits

every 3 year xi jinping updates big ideas china would like to share with africans see sept 2018 

bri.school africa is br9 in our blogs on what schools could be debating about the continents belts/ports and road/railways - see eg worldrecordjobs chinathanks norman macrae foundation

the middle read line is the silk road route that existed up to 1500- there were various routes but most stayed around latitide 30- on the west end was the med sea- unlike todaays sea of refugees this was the belt to sial into from europe, africa or asia- typically the overlan rourte started around the lebanon and went all the weaay to shanghai/hangzou

mote [people did not do what marco pol did- ie trek for 7 years overland- it was a gaint rel;ay across cultires and neighbprs-- only win-win cultures connected- the rest were diverted around- in these days economies were approximately proprtional to population size though there was an adavnate to be at a med sea [port or to be at hangzhou in china- this city had a canla up to a beijinng and was on shaghai's river

the higher red line is an example of a rauilway that has been newl[p [artnered from china to madris- at lastest count 26 mations including most that are lanlocked have linked in; this is a slow railway line perfect for non-perishable goods- logiosti9cs algorithm can always work out how much one place neds to stick up in advance- for example jack ma has craeted the biggest shoping day ever seen - its on 11/11- you need your goods there in tome just like you would meet ax xmas book in natiuons where that is the bigegst gifting tiome- all the nations railways have difer=rent giages - so the grat innovation is a dry dock - where contaniers are vunloaded from one train and relaided to another as fast as possible- not how evry biodrer junction og this 26 nation railway line now becoems a thriving place to be as long as youth on both sides of the bodrer start dcelebrating ecaj otehrs cultiers and langauges

lets look at the maritoime routes- over 40% of maritime freight nmoe departs aor arrives at suoper[ports in china korea japan or singpore- if you look at gepography singpaore is the crossroads ever westeast maritime gtrade currently has to go through befiore it decides wherther it i going up to europe through suez, to meiidle east or nporth east africa, arpound south africa perhspa to east coast usa;

china has colaborates with pakitan- it is biuilding fast riads (eiether rail or for container klorres) and a port at gjagar- the port will then join all the routes that previously hed tio go through singapore

at the moent afriuca's main interest in this is djiboiuti- and whatever rails connect with that

-however egypt has soem massive investment rpojects with china which could be the best thing for any neighbor of that country but yes that depends on rel;ationships continuing - my understanding is china is inc=vesting in oman- hostorically the gjadar port wass operated by poman-

please note all of tehse thinghs need local checkinh-g - i am mainly reporting what is announced on cgtn and what many eladers sign up to at sum,mits where clusers of national eladers m,eet- each chnsge in local leadership could chnage thongs

He now runs Revolution, a venture-capital firm based in Washington, DC, which is looking hard for investments outside the Bay Area.
