China’s Investments in Africa: Who’s gaining & who’s losing?
Let’s talk about Relationship with Africa
Chinese investments in Africa has been contentious right from the start; there are questions whether the quest for Africa on the part of China is to create a mutually benefiting arrangement or purely for the partial growth of a party. China brings in the fund, US$166 Billion as at 2009, as well as the equipment; but Africa owns the resources. Many said the arrangement should be to the benefit of both parties but there are questions as to whether this is so.
This episode of Invest Africa provides answers to many of the questions raised, is China’s interest in Africa mutually beneficial or lopsided?
