23% of Switzerland is immigrants. I wouldn't quite recognise it, after almost 20 years.

"This shift has meant that instead of just trading with Chinese businesses, African merchants are partnering with them to run factories, warehouses and export operations. There are closer cultural ties too, with a growing number of intermarriages, and groups dedicated to keeping the peace between the African communities and their Chinese hosts."

Looks like definitively a positive shift to me, because from what one can found even in wiki things were not working quite well in terms of relationships.

Once a month I  share our community hoping to reach 200 members ( yes, 200, not 200K) . Take a look when you have some time, no pressure.

The African Development Bank has a new blog on regional integration
Integrating Africa is the AfDB Group's blog on regional integration in Africa. It chronicles the issues arising from African countries' efforts as they work to pool resources and integrate their economies for the development of their regional and individual economies.

Just as a side note:
if somebody is interested in Regional Trade Agreements ( integration would involve much more than just trade) you can explore an interactive tool in WTO website:

( I will put the link in Data Category also).

For those of you who have a closer watch on Latin America you may want to read this article in the latest Economist issue:

"The Pacific Alliance, as the group calls itself, is “the most exciting thing going on in Latin America today”, according to Felipe Larraín, Chile’s finance minister. Some outsiders think so, too. Costa Rica and Panama want to join; Canada’s prime minister, Stephen Harper, and his Spanish counterpart, Mariano Rajoy, have said they will attend the Cali meeting as observers."
