China takes over world… continued (yawn)

There are now over 1 million Chinese people living and working in Africa. Some of the development they are doing is undoubtedly bringing economic prosperity to the region. But at what cost?

Continuiung the theme of the Chinese in Africa. Watch this interesting programme from the BBC:

I do love the amount of effort and media attention that is paid to China but it does get a bit tiresome when they constantly ponder whether China will take over the world (again).

I am off to get a job on a Chinese ship…or in an African mall.
