China in Africa

Two centuries ago, Napoleon observed: "China is a sleeping giant, but when she wakes she will shake the world."

China is redefining the continent's economic landscape and gradually displacing the influence and relevance of western governments, corporations and development agencies.

Beijing now lends more to Africa than the World Bank does.
