China just made a $2 billion move in an oil-rich west African nation


The deal will include providing “financial support” to Equatorial Guinea’s government as well as Chinese enterprises there, ICBC said in a statement.

China has sought to broaden financial support for its companies investing abroad as part of a policy drive known as “going out”.

“There are growing numbers of cooperation areas between our two countries, and the prospects are very bright,” Chinese Premier Li Keqiang told Obiang on Wednesday, according to a government statement.

The two countries should deepen their “traditional friendship”, Li added.

ICBC called Africa the “strategic and developmental heart of ‘going out'” for firms the bank supports.

“Equatorial Guinea is a central African country that has developed relatively well,” the government said. “The government in recent years has supported expanded investment into infrastructure development, and the need for infrastructure projects is enormous.”

Many Chinese development and aid projects have drawn condemnation from rights groups for their support of governments with poor rights records and lack of transparency, including Zimbabwe, Sudan and Angola.

China has said it will not follow the path of “Western colonists” in Africa by sacrificing countries’ long-term interests or environments.

Beijing says it follows a policy of non-interference in other countries’ domestic politics that is welcomed in Africa.

Equatorial Guinea, a tiny Sub-Saharan African nation, boasts the highest GDP per capita in Africa, thanks to a hydrocarbon boom. But it is also notorious for corruption and ranked 144 of 187 states on the U.N.’s 2014 Human Development Index.

A 2004 U.S. Senate probe showed millions of dollars channeled by Obiang and relatives into the disgraced Riggs Bank.

Obiang, in power since 1979, is Africa’s longest-serving head of state. Rights groups say he has enriched himself and his family while many of his people go hungry.

China is Africa’s biggest trade partner, and has sought to tap the continent’s rich resources to fuel its economic boom.

Critics, including some African leaders, have said Chinese projects bring little benefit to Africans, with materials and workers brought in from China.

The Philippines on Sunday urged the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations to take immediate steps to halt land reclamation by China in the disputed waters of the South China Sea, warning that failure to do so will see Beijing take “de facto control” of the area.

Philippine Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario told a meeting of ASEAN foreign ministers that if China’s construction of artificial islands on reefs claimed by other countries is allowed to be completed, then Beijing will impose its claim over more than 85 percent of the sea.

Rosario urged the grouping to “stand up” to China by urging it to halt its reclamation work.

Move over, Cold War 2.0. The real story, now and for the foreseeable future, in its myriad declinations, and of course, ruling out too many bumps in the road, is a new, integrated Eurasia forging ahead.

China’s New Silk Road project will keep intersecting with the Russia-led Eurasia Economic Union (EEC). And that will be the day when the EU wakes up and finds a booming trade/commerce axis stretching from St. Petersburg to Shanghai. It’s always pertinent to remember that Vladimir Putin sold a similar, and even more encompassing, vision in Germany a few years ago – stretching from Lisbon to Vladivostok.

A Short Planetary Situation Update

The Eastern Alliance is making good progress, especially on the financial front, as the major global powers except the US join the new Chinese-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB):

The Eastern Alliance will also unleash some much needed capital for a soft disclosure of advanced technologies:

The Eastern Alliance has set a target date of January 1st, 2016 as the day of the financial Reset:

That proposed date may or may not be the real date of the Reset.

You might also notice that the basic composition of the new financial system (especially scenario 3) here

http://philosophyofmetrics.com/2015/03/28/sdr-fundamentals-future-announcements/

is extremely close to what I have leaked 3 years ago here:

In the past, I have also mentioned a secret positive group operating in Latin America. One of their main purposes is to keep Chimera-controlled US military bases off the continent:

Although there is much progress, much works still needs to be done.

First, there is still a lot of Cabal infiltration in the government structures of the leading BRICS countries, especially China and Brazil:

Second, right now there are more human slaves on the planet than at any point in human history:

Especially in India:

As we get closer to the Event, a true balance needs to be reached between the East and the West, keeping the best of both worlds and discarding the rest:

One person died and 50 were arrested after some 2,000 police, using rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannons, put down a protest by villagers against pollution from a chemical plant in China’s Inner Mongolia, an overseas human rights group said.

Inner Mongolia, an autonomous region almost the size of Tibet that stretches from Heilongiang province almost to Xinjiang, has seen sporadic unrest since 2011 when the region was rocked by protests after an ethnic Mongol herder was killed by a truck after taking part in demonstrations against pollution caused by a coal mine.

Ethnic Mongols, who make up less than 20 per cent of Inner Mongolia’s 24 million population, say their grazing lands have been ruined…
