Guardian Special Report Examines China’s Involvement In African Development

The Guardian on Monday published a special report on China’s involvement in Africa, noting the country “has committed billions of dollars in development finance for Africa over the past decade as Beijing seeks to secure its political and economic clout on the continent.” Among others, the section includes an article on an “expansive aid program that will offer 18,000 government scholarships and train 30,000 Africans ‘in various sectors’ by 2015”; an article on a hospital in Zambia built and staffed by the Chinese; and an interactive on China’s financial commitments to the continent, including 192 health-related projects (4/29).
