Money and Mandarin lessons fuel China's African invasion

Chinese trade with Africa has grown from less than £6.3bn at the beginning of the decade to pass £60bn at the end of last year – only the European Union and the US do more business.

There are now some 800 Chinese companies operating in Africa and the investors in talks in Conakry are not from Beijing but from the Hong Kong-based China Investment Fund. Yet only two months ago officials in Beijing said that China would not be investing in Guinea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Notice how the writers of this article characterize the emergence of Chinese business in Africa as an "invasion", as though deal making was somehow inferior to military attack and occupation to get the geopolitcal outcomes a foreign country wants to have happen here.
