This is an old article but quite interesting. Demonstrates some fairly
dramatic forward thinking by China's senior leadership.
The quick summary:
China looking to land 200-300 million Chinese on the African continent
to secure access to natural resources and drive & profit from
infrastructure build out. There are enough Chinese willing to go,
adopt a low cost lifestyle and build out small business in order to get
established. Their interest in infrastructure build out is in sharp
contrast to failed western efforts at colonizing.
