I visited Africa a few years ago, you have to give credit to the Chinese: they built most of the roads, railway, stadiums and schools in Africa. They are actually helping local developing their living standards!!
China wants bases and expanded markets.
chinese travel everywhere - I saw crowds and crowds of them in a few europian cities
Their spending power is really welcome.
Over 2 years ago the Nairobi , Kenya international airport ( JKIA ) added Chinese to all verbal intercom announcements …..that's how big the Chinese are in Africa .
TV news program "60 Minutes" reported many years ago that China helped Africa build roads, schools and other infrastructure. They helped Africans build their own drilling and oil refineries, and they influenced and developed African countries in good faith.
Obviously, this made the white colonists feel ashamed. Of course, I prefer to think that they were driven out by the African people!
The reason why Africa can develop today is that China knows what Africa needs, not just what it wants like white people do!
There is no doubt that Africa is rich. It has 65% of the world's gold and diamonds. Poor as it is, it is the richest place on earth. Because of justice, the Chinese are getting rewards!
China is smart. While America spends money on endless wars, China is building infrastructure in many countries. For example, Africa has a few routes on their new Silk Road.
With peaceful development, China's trade tentacles are extending all over the world. Bloodthirsty Americans do not realize that war is extremely expensive. The trillions of dollars you spend on war could have been invested elsewhere to consolidate your position as the world's first power.
Why? short answer is; mutual respect & mutual beneficial. Unlike the US & the West just loot Africa for over 400 yrs.
Why do you think we have such a "sour grapes" attitude towards China. When we realized that we cant tell the entire world who they can sell their oil to, we had to use tariffs as a way to try and dictate what the world and China can do.
Somebody should help Africa coup up with the rapidly changing world . China is doing a good job by helping the poorer section of Africa .
Well done, China, very well done Africa indeed. Keep up with the good work and "Make China and Africa Strong, Prosperous and Great Again"
Well, unlike the scared of everyone not white GOP, China understands some of the largest mineral deposits in the world are in Africa. Therefore, China and other African countries have invested in the construction of power grids and obtained the resources they need under the common development. But at the same time, Republicans call coal clean energy and the future of the United States. Stupid!
DUH the Chinese are going around the world gathering NATURAL RESOURCES of which im sure there plenty in Africa.They are also setting up banks and factories to set up the whole thing from production to the money end.
The United States has wasted too much time in the Middle East, just for the sake of foolish war. We should learn from China - to make money for everyone, not to point a gun at someone else's head and take their last penny!
Although the main reason for China's investment in Africa is to buy African minerals, unlike the bare robbery of white colonists, they exchanged high-rise buildings, smooth and convenient roads and railways, and a large number of modern machinery in order to obtain the desired resources.
This is not only mutually beneficial, but also a win-win situation for China in Africa. The fundamental reason for the success of the continent is that, sadly, in the past few hundred years, we all lack this attitude of equality and win-win.
the world is all connected, I don't care which country wants to help africa, but collectively if we don't positively influence the world, we will be bring destruction.

China has been "Make good friends" African nations for the last 30 years . When I was in Dakar,in the early 90's, I saw a Soccer Stadium that they gave the Senegalese.
Obviously, this is quite different from the American "missionary" to Africa. The Chinese always pay attention to practical action, not just verbal deception.
As an African, I want to tell you: Africa thanks China!
When I was very young I heard my grandfather tell me, Former Africa retained the original ecological flavor of the Hollywood Movie, but as in the past few thousand years, we drank the sewage in the stream, ate rough food, and endured endless malaria and suffering!
The arrival of the Chinese people has solved this problem: they teach us to drink boiled water, put disinfection tablets in the water tank of each household, we learn to drill wells, grow vegetables, insecticide, and listen to the Chinese saying that these technologies improve our quality of life, so will the white people!But I want to know why white people have not said a word in the past few hundred years.
So I want to tell you that I love China!
Now, after five years of study, I have returned to Tanzania with the technology I learned from China. I dream of building my motherland into a beautiful country like China.
