The world is witnessing the beginning of the African industrialization "movement," according to the Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).

Helen Hai says industrialization transformed China and other Asian countries and can do the same for Africa.

Ms Hai is CEO of the Made in Africa Initiative, a non-governmental organization, and adviser to the governments of Ethiopia, Rwanda and Senegal.

The business executive, who is from China, spent two years in Ethiopia setting up a factory for one of her country's biggest shoe makers.

Liling Huang asked her about that experience.
