The reason why china can sell stuff cheaper than the rest of us is becuase of access to cheap labour and raw materials...the key ingredients to profitable manufacturing...China will do whatever it takes to ensure they maintain the upper hand.
The US and the EU are snapping at Chinas heels..you have Eastern Europe (cheap labour) on my side, and Mexico (cheap labour) on the US side.
Africa doesn’t even come into it...they are just a source of raw materials..Africa is an afterthought...the race now is to gain a foothold in Africa and, we all know Africans are known for selling themselves short.
I gave up on Africa, Jamaica and India a long time ago..I know the leaders are out to enrich themselves and their predecessors are groomed to follow suit.
You heart is in the right place..I donate to Africa via British Red Cross...I can at least go online a view their annual accounts to see where my money is spent...I refuse to waste my time with the rest of that BS.
Speaking of China, they are investing at alarming rates in Africa. In fact an article was done showing many Chinese business men marrying African women.

@Mahogany Queen B

China = roads, bridges, railroads and seaports..makes it easier to ship natural recourses out of Africa and, opens a channel to ship arms back to Africa to squelch uprisings.

If the prices of fuel rises it makes sense to set up shop close to your natural resources..get it..maybe not.

African despots are akin to Africans that sold their own to slave masters..we are witnessing that sh!t...nothing has changed.

The eternal pessimist you people are. Am sure there are more african men married to chinese women in china than chinese men to Africa women. Look at how trade between African countries and china have benefited both parties that is what counts not who is sleeping with who.
