It’s America Versus China in Africa
According to the US Government Accountability Office, China surpassed America as Africa’s largest trading partner in 2009. Three years later, Chinese two-way trade with African nations amounted to $198 billion, about double ours. And the future looks bright for the Chinese. Projections put China’s African trade at $325 billion just two years from now. It was only $11 billion in 2000, writes Gordon G. Chang.
