Russia lags behind China, India in the exploitation of Africa

Russia lags behind China, India in the exploitation of Africa
BY KESTER KENN KLOMEGAH
IPS NEWS AGENCY

MOSCOW — Russian efforts to acquire oil and gas fields in Africa and prospect for minerals on the resource-rich continent have yielded little success over the past decade due to lack of a coherent national strategy, experts say.

Questions are being asked as to how China has scored in Africa with its resource exploration policy, infrastructure projects and three international summits on the continent since the turn of the 21st century.

Andrei Petrov, chairman of the ‘New Africa Initiative' non-profit organization, told IPS that Russia lags critically behind China, India and some countries in Western Europe in promoting its interests in Africa.
