China Steps Up Contributions In Ebola Response

Financial Times: China steps up support for fight against Ebola
“China is stepping up its contributions to the fight against Ebola, seen as a test of its diplomacy in Africa given growing trade and investment as well as historic pledges of friendship. Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday pledged $6m to the World Food Programme, for food aid for countries isolated by the outbreak. That follows earlier pledges of about $33m in medical aid to Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea, and $2m each in contributions to the World Health Organization and African Union…” (Hornby, 10/10).
