China Gives $15.7 Million to Rwanda to Boost Economic Development, Trade

By Heather Murdock – Aug 18, 2011 5:01 AM PT

China’s government will give Rwanda 100 million yuan ($15.7 million) in grants and loans to encourage economic development and trade with China, Vice Commerce Minister Gao Hucheng said.

The East African country will receive half the amount as a grant and the remaining 50 million yuan as a five-year, interest-free loan, Gao told officials and reporters today in Kigali, Rwanda’s capital. Trade between the two countries doubled to $76.4 million in the first half from a year earlier, he said.

“The economic cooperation between Rwanda and China has been growing rapidly,” Gao said.

Chinese investment in Africa may grow 70 percent to $570 billion by 2015 from 2009 as the country seeks to acquire resources on the continent, according to Standard Bank Group Ltd., the continent’s biggest lender. Bilateral trade will reach $300 billion by 2015, double the level in 2010, it said in February.

China also plans to build a government administrative building, a 25-kilometer (16-mile) road in Kigali and provide medical devices and pharmaceuticals to Rwanda, as well as providing support for exports to China, Gao said.

“On top of the 60 percent tariff-free treatment China already has granted to Rwandan exports to China, we will continue to help you to publicize and promote your products to the Chinese market,” he said.

Rwanda doubled the size of its economy in the nine years to 2010 as it recovers from a 1994 genocide in which 800,000 mainly ethnic Tutsis died.

Taking Harder Stance Toward China, Obama Lines Up Allies
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration, facing a vexed relationship with China on exchange rates, trade, and security issues, is stiffening its approach toward Beijing, seeking allies to confront a newly assertive power that officials now say has little intention of working with the United States.

In a shift from its assiduous one-on-one courtship of Beijing, the administration is trying to line up coalitions — among China’s next-door neighbors and far-flung trading partners — to present Chinese leaders with a unified front on thorny issues like the currency and its territorial claims in the South China Sea.

The advantages and limitations of this new approach were on display last weekend at a meeting of the world’s largest economies in South Korea. The United States won support for a concrete pledge to reduce trade imbalances, which will put more pressure on China to allow its currency to rise in value.

But Germany, Italy, and Russia balked at an American proposal to place numerical limits on these imbalances, a step that would have further upped the ante on Beijing. That left the Treasury secretary, Timothy F. Geithner, to make an unscheduled stopover in China on his way home from South Korea to discuss the deepening tensions over exchange rates with a top Chinese finance official.

Administration officials speak of an alarming loss of trust and confidence between China and the United States over the last two years, forcing them to scale back hopes of working with the Chinese on major challenges like climate change, nuclear nonproliferation, and a new global economic order.

The latest source of tension is over reports that China is withholding shipments of rare-earth minerals, which the United States uses to make advanced equipment like guided missiles. Administration officials, clearly worried, said they did not know whether Beijing’s motivation was strategic or economic.

“This administration came in with one dominant idea: make China a global partner in facing global challenges,” said David Shambaugh, director of the China policy program at George Washington University. “China failed to step up and play that role. Now, they realize they’re dealing with an increasingly narrow-minded, self-interested, truculent, hyper-nationalist, and powerful country.”

To counter what some officials view as a surge of Chinese triumphalism, the United States is reinvigorating cold-war alliances with Japan and South Korea, and shoring up its presence elsewhere in Asia. This week, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will visit Vietnam for the second time in four months, to attend an East Asian summit meeting likely to be dominated by the China questions.

Next month, Mr. Obama plans to tour four major Asian democracies — Japan, Indonesia, India, and South Korea — while bypassing China. The itinerary is not meant as a snub: Mr. Obama has already been to Beijing once, and his visit to Indonesia is long delayed. But the symbolism is not lost on administration officials.

Jeffrey A. Bader, a key China policy adviser in the White House, said China’s muscle-flexing became especially noticeable after the 2008 economic crisis, in part because Beijing’s faster rebound led to a “widespread judgment that the U.S. was a declining power and that China was a rising power.”

But the administration, he said, was determined “to effectively counteract that impression by renewing American leadership.”

Political factors at home have contributed to the administration’s tougher posture. With the economy sputtering and unemployment high, Beijing has become an all-purpose target. In this Congressional election season, candidates in at least 30 races are bashing China as a threat to American jobs.

At a time of partisan paralysis in Congress, anger over China’s currency has been one of the few areas of bipartisan agreement, culminating in the House’s overwhelming vote in September to threaten China with tariffs on its exports if Beijing did not let its currency, the renminbi, appreciate.

There is a growing sense, even among Republicans, that lobbying China on a bilateral basis has not succeeded; the administration’s refusal to label China a currency manipulator is cited as evidence of fecklessness.

“A decision was made that bilateral talks weren’t moving a major economic issue,” said Representative Sander M. Levin, a Michigan Democrat who as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee guided the currency bill through the House. “Essentially there was a decision to try to move from bilateral to multilateral.”

The trouble is that domestic forces may cause the Chinese to dig in their heels under pressure from these new coalitions. With the Communist Party embarking on a transfer of leadership from President Hu Jintao to his anointed successor, Xi Jinping, the leadership is wary of changes that could hobble China’s growth.

There are also increasingly sharp divisions between China’s civilian leaders and elements of the People’s Liberation Army. Many Chinese military officers are openly hostile toward the United States, convinced that its recent naval exercises in the Yellow Sea amount to a policy of encircling China.

Even the administration’s efforts to collaborate with China on climate change and nonproliferation are viewed with suspicion by some in Beijing. “There is a belief that President Obama’s attempt to make them a partner on global issues is actually a way to hold them back,” said Kenneth G. Lieberthal, a scholar at the Brookings Institution who was China adviser in the Clinton administration.

It is the process of legalization of documents if the country where the document will be used is not a party to the Hague Convention; you will need Embassy or Consular Legalization. This is sometimes called a chain of authentication. The process is lengthy and can be very time consuming. Embassy Legalization of official documents is a procedure of confirmation of the validity of originals of official documents or certification of authenticity of signatures of the officials, authorized to certify the signatures on documents, and also the validity of prints of stamps. The following countries require embassy legalization: Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Benin, Bhutan, Bolivia, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cambodia, Cameroon, Canada, Cape Verde, Chad, Chile, China – People’s Republic, Comoros, Congo – Dem.

LONDON | BEIJING: Surging domestic demand helped manufacturing growth in China and Russia pick up speed in August, according to business surveys on Wednesday that conversely showed a slowing recovery in European factories. Purchasing managers indexes, which measure changes in business activity across thousands of private sector companies, showed diverging fortunes among euro zone manufacturers which expanded overall at their slowest pace since February.

The Markit Eurozone Manufacturing PMI for August dropped to 55.1 from 56.7 in July, marking its 11th month above the 50.0 mark that divides growth from contraction.

Manufacturing growth in Germany slowed in August although other recent data show Europe’s biggest economy is expanding fast. Business in France accelerated but Italy and Spain saw their manufacturing indexes slip backwards. “We are at a delicate juncture of the global business cycle. Globally there is a slowdown in the trade cycle which first affects the economies which are reliant on that,” said Silvio Peruzzo at RBS. “Just as they were benefitting from the acceleration in Q4 2009 and Q1 2010, they will now be subject to the downturn and this will amplify the divergence we are seeing.”

Britain, a major euro zone trading partner, saw growth in its manufacturing sector slow more than expected last month, led by the weakest expansion in new orders for more than a year.

In contrast, a pair of China’s manufacturing surveys showed activity picked up last month, recovering from a government-engineered slowdown designed to calm an overheating economy.

Indian factories expanded apace in August, although slightly slower than in July, after Asia’s third-largest economy grew at its fastest rate in nearly three years in the last quarter.

And the manufacturing sector of Russia — part of the BRIC quartet of new economic powers alongside China, India and Brazil — expanded at its fastest rate in 28 months largely thanks to the strong domestic demand.

HSBC’s purchasing managers’ index for China rose to a three-month high of 51.9 in August from 49.4 in July, while the official index also rose, to 51.7 from 51.2. Optimism that Beijing was succeeding in shifting towards more domestic-driven and sustained growth helped lift Asian stocks and metals markets.

However, fears that recovery in the US was petering out and could stall the global upturn have haunted markets, pushing the global stock index down more than 3% last month.

“We expect China will have a relatively moderate slowdown over the second half of 2010, but weaker external demand from the US and Europe still represent a significant downside risk,” said Brian Jackson of Royal Bank of Canada in Hong Kong. China’s growing influence showed up in Australia which grew 1.2% in the second quarter, beating forecasts largely due to China’s and India’s voracious appetite for Australia’s resources, from coal to wheat.

HONG KONG –China Strategic Holdings Ltd. said Wednesday the company hasn’t received official notification from Taiwan’s government about its decision to reject American International Group Inc.’s (AIG) sale of its Taiwanese life-insurance unit to a China Strategic-led consortium.

Taiwan’s Financial Supervisory Commission said Tuesday it decided to reject the deal because it had doubts about China Strategic’s financial strength and commitment to the unit, Nan Shan Life Insurance Co., which controls more than a 30% share of Taiwan’s life insurance market.

“The board is disappointed at this outcome, having cooperated to the furthest extent with the Taiwan regulatory authorities on the requisite conditions imposed,” China Strategic Chairman Frederick Ma said in a statement.

Hong Kong-listed China Strategic, private equity firm Primus Financial Holdings Ltd. and American International Group will determine the next steps and decide whether to appeal after receiving the official notification from the Taiwan government, the statement said.
