He said Africa should learn from the Chinese experience of investing in many climate change investment projects. "Africa should emulate China because such investments will also help to alleviate poverty in the continent."

Speaking at a forum organized by the Institute of Security Studies in Ethiopia, Chinese Ambassador to Ethiopia Gu Xiaojie said China's partnership with Africa, unlike some say, is not simply resources specific approach. "China is a real partner of Africa in many respects. It is a South-South cooperation based on win-win and mutual benefit. We are more of a friend by experiencing more or less similar situations," he said.

Regarding use of Chinese labor in Africa, the ambassador explained that the reason why this is sometimes done is because of time-bounded activities such as the construction of the African Union Convention Centers.

University don Prof. Edward Oyugi says China's has been geared to infrastructure, trade and education sectors and in direct budget support, which gives Kenya the necessary latitude to direct the received resources to where they are needed and not where the donor thinks they are needed. "Chinese aid should continue to grow in size and scale up in favor of strategic sectors that are key for equitable economic development in Africa," Oyugi told Xinhua recently.
