Taisei Yokusankai Posted December 22, 2006 Report Share Posted December 22, 2006 …et fait appel à la Chine. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/6202447.stm Zimbabwe is preparing to open talks with China for a $2bn (£1.1bn) loan, in a bid to boost its crumbling economy.Much of the money would be used to fight Zimbabwe's soaring inflation, the state-run Herald newspaper reported. China has been looking to extend its influence in Africa and recently hosted a summit of African leaders. Zimbabwe has been struggling to cope with economic collapse brought about, critics say, by the policies of President Robert Mugabe. The southern African country - previously one of the continent's most developed economies - has seen inflation leap above 1,000%, while food and fuel shortages are rife. The International Monetary Fund warned earlier this week that Zimbabwe's dire economic situation could get worse. Link to comment
