Chinese enterprises help improve living standards of South Africans
9th December 2016

 PRETORIA - A report released Thursday shows that Chinese enterprises in South Africa are making positive contributions to the socio-economic well-being of the country.

 
According to the report on the development of Chinese enterprises in South Africa unveiled by the South Africa-China Economic and Trade Association, there are more than 300 Chinese companies including representative offices in South Africa and among them about 140 are large and medium-sized companies.
 
The Chinese companies have been involved in such fields as real estate, mining, automobiles, finance, construction, textile, logistics and household appliances, the report said.
 
By the end of 2015, Chinese investment in South Africa reached about $13 billion. The Chinese enterprises employed more than 26,000 people in South Africa, of whom 24,000 were locals, the report said.
 
"Over the years, the Chinese enterprises have devoted themselves to South Africa's economic and social development," Chinese Ambassador to South Africa Tian Xuejun said at a ceremony to launch the report.
 
The Chinese companies "have strictly abided by laws and regulations, maintained sound relations with local communities, earnestly fulfilled their social responsibilities and been actively engaged in the development of South Africa's education, health and social charity," Tian said.
 
Tian said despite the sluggish global economic growth, the Chinese enterprises are working hard to maintain investment and production, and keep jobs in South Africa.
 
The Chinese enterprises are now working with their South African partners to deepen cooperation in fields such as infrastructure construction, development of special economic zones and industrial parks, equipment manufacturing, industrial capacity, marine economy, exploration of energy resources, and finance, Tian said.
 
"Both sides are energetically pushing forward the reindustrialization and the social and economic transformation of South Africa. Those efforts once again prove that the Chinese enterprises have taken roots in the Rainbow Nation and their future has been closely connected with South Africa and its people," he added.
 
The report shows that Chinese investment has improved the living standards of South Africans by improving the level of science and technology, the development of local economies and job opportunities.
 
Mogokare Richard Seleke, director-general of South Africa's Department of Public Enterprises, said the report is a fair assessment of the South African environment.
 
While promising to address the concerns and challenges the Chinese enterprises face in South Africa, Seleke urged them to consider investing in rural areas, saying that "there are untapped opportunities in the countryside."
 
Cheng Jun, chairman of the South Africa-China Economic and Trade Association and CEO of the Bank of China in Johannesburg, said that the Chinese enterprises have integrated themselves well with local communities and improved people's livelihood.
 
"While the Chinese enterprises continue to grow and develop, they have faced a series of social and economic challenges such as security risk, legal risk, labor risk, operational risk and exchange rate risk," Cheng said.
 
Aptserv Consulting Chairman Michael Paketh, who has worked with China's Sinosteel in South Africa, Cote d'Ivoire and Ghana, told Xinhua that the Chinese enterprises are doing a good job in Africa.
 
Paketh said the Chinese are honest and friendly, and have high standards of business ethics. "They are good partners. They have given Africa opportunities for development ... They focus on business and do not interfere in the politics of other countries and I respect them for that."
 
Chinese official data shows that bilateral trade between China and South Africa exceeded $46 billion in 2015.
 
The South Africa-China Economic and Trade Association, established in 2011, is a non-governmental organization launched by Chinese enterprises and some companies owned by ethnic Chinese in South Africa, with more than 120 members.

China to ease restrictions on foreign investment
8th December 2016

 CHINESE authorities are considering revising the country's guidance catalogue for foreign investment, cutting the number of restrictive measures to 62 from the previous 93.

 
The National Development and Reform Commission, the country's top economic planner, yesterday published a revision draft on its website to seek public opinion on the changes.
 
The easing rules on foreign investment came amid government efforts to push use of the Ònegative listÓ approach, which identifies sectors and businesses that are off limits or restricted for investment.
 
The Ònegative listÓ approach is a common practice adopted in many countries to manage foreign investment. China first piloted the rules in the Shanghai free trade zone in 2013.
 
Earlier official data showed foreign direct investment to the Chinese mainland rose 4.2 percent year on year to reach 666.3 billion yuan (US$97 billion) in the first 10 months of the year.

Belt and Road to be connected
7th December 2016

 CHINA will build an open, modern and efficient international road system by 2020 to facilitate international transport and solidify connectivity among countries along the Belt and Road.

 
China will advance transport infrastructure construction along the Belt and Road, improve customs clearance efficiency and strengthen emergency rescue capabilities to facilitate international transport, according to a circular jointly released by eight central departments.
 
The move aims to develop economic corridors with countries along the Belt and Road, reduce cross-border transport costs and improve transport services and efficiency, Wang Shuiping, a senior official of the Ministry of Transport, said during a press conference yesterday.
 
Proposed by China in 2013, the Belt and Road is an infrastructure and trade network to link Asia with Europe and Africa along ancient trade routes.
 
Regions along the Belt and Road account for 63 percent of the global population and 29 percent of the global economy, statistics show.
