When China Met Africa

4

Overview of China’s ongoing economic annexation of Africa

Casting an impartial eye over China’s ongoing economic annexation of Africa, this fascinating doc raises big questions about where the global balance of power will shift as a result. Is China’s huge investment in the world’s poorest, yet most naturally rich continent something Africa desperately needs after decades of ineffectual charity initiatives? Or is it economic colonisation? Either way, this is a fascinating look at the effects – good and bad – that the émigré engineers, farmers and entrepreneurs from one cradle of civilisation are having on another.
