""Africa's silk road"" finds that china and india's south-south commerce with africa is about far more than natural resources, opening the way for africa to become a processor of commodities and a competitive supplier of goods and services to these countries - a major departure from its long established relations with the north. A growing number of chinese and indian businesses active in africa operate on a global scale, work with world-class technologies, produce products and services according to the most demanding standards, and foster the integration of african businesses into advanced markets. There are significant imbalances, however, in these emerging commercial relationships. These can be addressed through a series of reforms in all countries: ""at-the-border"" reforms, such as elimination of china and india's escalating tariffs on africa's leading exports, and elimination of africa's tariffs on certain inputs that make exports uncompetitive; ""behind-the-border"" reforms in africa, to unleash competitive market forces and strengthen its basic market institutions; ""between-the-border"" improvements in trade facilitation mechanisms to decrease transactions costs; and reforms that leverage linkages between investment and trade, to allow african businesses to participate in global production networks that investments by chinese and indian firms can generate.~~~~~~384~~~~~~~~~~ 21~~N26575413A~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 21~~N26575414A~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 21~~N26575415A~~Behaviour is a significant indicator of health in animals and understanding behaviour is the key to good management.

The eagerly awaited fourth edition of Farm Animal Behaviour and Welfare builds on the coverage of the previous edition, fully updating it to take into account developments over the last 10 years. This new edition covers companion animals as well as farm animal species including farmed fish. It is an indispensible textbook covering the major and growing areas in agricultural and veterinary science and practice.~~Some books about animal behaviour are a source of inspiration, others are a source of information and a happy few manage to be both. Farm Animal Behaviour and Welfare, by Andrew Fraser and Donald Broom, falls fairly and squarely into the second category. - Marion Stamp Dawkins, Animal Behaviour "This seminal book should remain the first point of call for information on and insight into two subjects that are vitally important to every veterinarian." - D B Adams, Australian Veterinary Journal"

Broom, Emeritus Professor of Animal Welfare, Cambridge University, Department of Veterinary Medicine, has developed concepts and methods of scientific assessment of animal welfare and studied: cognitive abilities of animals, the welfare of animals in relation to housing and transport, behaviour problems, attitudes to animals, sustainable livestock production and ethics of animal usage.
