Media gets a new look at Chinese companies in Africa

Updated 2016-11-29 16:36:50

It was the first time Lucas Liganga, a journalist for The Guardian in Tanzania, got involved in a joint interview with Chinese and African media outlets for Chinese companies in Africa.

After interviewing three Chinese companies in Tanzania, Liganga had new ideas about Chinese companies in Africa.

"Chinese companies are doing serious businesses here, bringing us new technologies and creating jobs. My impression on Chinese and Chinese companies is very positive now," he said.

Liganga used to have the opposite opinion. He said he tried to interview some Chinese companies in Tanzanian before but never got any chances. "I knew Chinese companies are doing business here, but they should be more open to foreign media."

Liganga is among the more than 40 reporters from about 30 media outlets from China, Tanzania and Kenya that joined a 7-day interview tour of Chinese companies in Africa.

Organized by China's State Council Information Office, event participants will visit Chinese enterprises and academic institutions in the two African countries, including CRJE East Africa and Sunshine Group in Tanzania and the Sino-Africa Joint Research Center in Kenya.
