SHOTLIST JOHANNESBURG, 17 APRIL 2013, SOURCE: AFPTV - VAR of press conference SOUNDBITE 1: Arthur Mutambara (man), Zimbabwe Deputy Prime Minister (English, 12 sec) "Africans must not blame China or any other power for that matter. We must take charge of our lives, we must take responsibility for our problems and solve them." - VAR of press conference SOUNDBITE 2: Arthur Mutambara (man), Zimbabwe Deputy Prime Minister (English, 26 sec) "Why are we not making sure the engagement with China is on our terms, as Africans? Labour, skills, technology, value addition… The Chinese must come to Africa on African terms. The terms that will allow the Chinese to make money but the terms that will also allow Africa to develop, win win. China wins, Africa wins." - VAR of press conference SOUNDBITE 3: Yansong Rong (man), Economic and commerical counsellor, Chinese Embassy (English, 24 sec) "Someone criticized that China brings to much Chinese labour force and Chinese made equipment to Africa. But the truth is that both Chinese government and Chinese companies are doing their best to promote local employment and industrialization." - VAR of press conference SOUNDBITE 4: Dr Wang Jianye (man), Chief Economist, China Export-Import Bank (English. 19 sec) "Official development assistance is such a small part compared to private capital flow. So ultimately, this relationship will be determined by business to business, people to people relations." - VAR of press conference ------------------------------------------------ NO AFP TEXT STORY
