Abstract

The biggest challenge facing governance in the 21st century Africa is industrial development. Industrial developments one of the key agencies of sustainable growth and development. Moreover, for FOCAC to succeed, China-Africa cooperation will have to promote industrial best practices to reduce poverty, inequality, and raise standards of living in both regions. The objective of this book is to analyse the implications and benefits of promoting industrial development and agricultural modernisation through FOCAC for both regions. The new policy initiatives and proposals outlined in this study can make a very valuable contribution strengthening FOCAC and advancing Africa's economic development.
