Check out this investigative report on Chinese investment in mineral rich countries, like Angola. They come as friends, but will this type of "development" benefit the millions of Angolans, or continue to marginalize them in their own country. The end result remains to be seen. For now what we're seeing are improvements in the infrastructure of the country and billions of dollars flowing into the country. The question remains will the government officials making these deals do so with the best interests of the country in mind, or will they do so with their own best interests in mind, as China takes a very different approach from the West, which allows these officials to siphon off large amounts of money for their own benefit.
