Thanks for the informative post. Jeff Sachs also wrote about this meeting here: http://blogs.ft.com/beyond-brics/2010/09/22/jeffrey-sachs-china-has-left-the-west-on-the-sidelines-in-africa/ He refers to a series of maps that were displayed, indicating Africa’s needs for regional roads, rail, power, and fibre optic grids. Do you happen to have a copy of those maps? If so, are you able to make them available online to readers of this blog? I'm sure those of us who weren't able to attend the meeting would love to see them. Thank you.
