世行说中国推动非洲基础建设 World Bank Says China Boosting African Infrastructure

11 July, 2008

世界银行最新公布的一份报告说,中国正增加对越来越多的非洲基础设施项目的投资,帮助非洲削减贫困和发展经济。

这份报告的作者、世界银行非洲地区副总裁埃泽奎西利说,中国越来越多的承诺正在帮助非洲大陆解决基础设施严重不足问题。

这份报告说,从2004至2006年,中国、印度和中东等世界新兴资金提供者对非洲的年投资从10亿美元增加到80亿美元。

报告说,非洲需要基础设施,正好中国也需要自然资源,而且中国建筑行业在全球具有竞争力。

A newly released report by the World Bank says China is financing an increasing number of infrastructure projects in Africa that are helping reduce poverty and boost economies.

The author of the report, Obiageli Katryn Ezekewesili (vice president for the Africa region at the World Bank), says China's growing commitments are helping address a huge infrastructure deficit on the continent.

The report says that between 2004 and 2006, annual investments in Africa from the world's emerging financiers - China, India and the Middle East - grew from one billion to eight billion dollars.

The report says Africa's need for infrastructure is matched by China's need for natural resources and its globally competitive construction industry.
