    UNITED NATIONS Authentic D'Onta Foreman Jersey , Oct. 15 (Xinhua) -- Africa's small businesses are key to economic growth, and joint ventures with Chinese companies can help, Ibrahim Mayaki, CEO of the African Union's New Partnership for Africa Development, has said.

     

    Mayaki, who was prime minister of Niger from 1997 to 2000 Authentic Keke Coutee Jersey , said that boosting Chinese joint ventures with African companies to the next level could help see Africa move towards more value added industries.

     

    "I don't think Chinese investors really need advice," Mayaki said in an interview with Xinhua during Africa Week, a week of Africa-related events at United Nations headquarters on Oct. 12-16.

     

    "The small-scale entrepreneurs, big firms, they have done joint ventures with the African domestic private sector (for many years), we just need to boost that movement in order to reach another level Authentic Jordan Akins Jersey ," he said.

     

    The process has already begun in Ethiopia and Kenya where Mayaki said China has relocated some of its industries and trained local staff to work in them.

     

    He said although industrialization was an important objective, reaching the objective would involve focusing attention now on small businesses, which play a significant role in Africa's economies.

     

    These small businesses include smallholder farmers and entrepreneurs in the informal sector, he said.

     

    "Smallholder farmers are feeding Africa today," said Mayaki, adding that "80 percent of the food we eat is produced by smallholder farmers."

     

    The majority of smallholder farmers are women Authentic Martinas Rankin Jersey , he said, and governments could help them to learn new skills in areas such as management, climate change adaptation and market access.

     

    Another area the government can provide support is in the informal economy. Mayaki said that on average, 60 percent of African economies are in the informal sector.

     

    "There are a lot of dynamic entrepreneurs in the informal economy but governments need to help them shift to a formal economy; which means financial literacy, which means managerial capacities, which means access to the services of taxation Authentic Justin Reid Jersey ," he said.

     

    Africa's continued high birth rate means that the continent will have to create an additional 300 million jobs over the next 15 years, said Mayaki.

     

    He said that the private sector would be the primary sector that creates these jobs, but governments still had an important role to play.

     

    "The role of government is to enhance entrepreneurship, because the governments by themselves will not create jobs, the jobs will fundamentally be created by the private sector," Mayaki said.

     

    While Africa can take inspiration from China's economic growth Authentic Benardrick McKinney Jersey , it's own path will be different because the world is now much more interconnected, he said.

     

    "Africa has to go through a learning curve of industrialization -- not repeat the model of China but inspire itself, from the Chinese experience," he said.

     

    PARIS, Oct. 2 (Xinhua) -- After talks on Ukraine future with leaders from Russia, Ukraine and Germany Authentic Kevin Johnson Jersey , French President Francois Hollande said Minsk peace process would be extended to next year in order to meet security conditions to hold elections.

     

    "The ceasefire is generally respected and today we were able to make further progress and allow that there are no more victims in this dramatic conflict," the French head of state told reporters.

     

    However, it's "certain" that elections would take more time to be organized, Hollande said, adding "we don't want elections to get held in eastern Ukrainian territories under conditions that would not respect Minsk."

     

    The run-off in eastern Ukraine was previously scheduled for Oct. 18. Three months will be needed between the vote of the electoral law and the election date, which will be overseen by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Authentic Nick Martin Jersey , according to the French president.

     

    Brokered by Paris and Berlin, the ceasefire deal, reached on Feb. 12 in Minsk, capital of Belarus, envisages that both sides are to withdraw their heavy weapons 25 to 70 km from the front line to create a buffer zone and to exchange prisoners of war.

     

    Earlier this week, Ukrainian officials and pro-Russian militants agreed to pull-back tanks and smaller weapons systems in eastern Ukraine.

     

    "We wanted to make sure that the withdrawal of light weapons... would start tomorrow morning at midnight. Regarding heavy arms Authentic Julien Davenport Jersey , there must be a similar process, and we should be able to put seals on them," Hollande said

     

    Minsk agreement was originally set to end by Dec. 31, 2015.
