China has invested billions of dollars into the continent of Africa to build massive infrastructure projects in African countries. Much of this infrastructure is part of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, an estimated 1 trillion dollar plan to connect the country to trade routes all over the world. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2LhNmtv While China’s Belt and Road Initiative was only proposed in 2013, the country’s first infrastructure project on the African continent was built decades ago. The TazaHra railway, completed in 1976, was built to connect copper mines in Zambia to Dar EH Salaam, Tanzania’s former capital. The TazHara railway was the first infrastructure project built on a pan-African scale. China’s Belt and Road projects will be designed to create new trade routes within and between African countries. In 2017, a Chinese firm opened a railway network in Kenya, connecting its capital Nairobi to the port city of Mombasa. There are already plans to extend this network into South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. Many observers worry that African countries won’t be able to pay back these debts, placing them in what’s been called a quote “debt trap.” But others think that as African countries rise economically, they could actually have the upper hand by the time they negotiate payments back to China. This explains why African leaders have been so confident in calling Chinese investment a “win-win.” But is China’s investment in the continent actually a “win-win” as some African and Chinese leaders have said? OR is it just a new form of colonialism on a continent that’s experienced so much of it? In this episode, we’re examining China’s Belt and Road Initiative and what it might mean for Africa.

Last month, China's President Xi Jinping announced that his country would invest another $60 billion across the African continent. Africa is now the third-largest destination for Chinese investment, trailing Asia and Europe. As TVO continues its "China: Here and Now" documentary series, The Agenda examines the reasons for the investment and what it looks like on the ground.

Is 60 billion dollars enough to convince African leaders that China is their most reliable partner? President Xi Jingping is in South Africa reassuring leaders from across the continent with hard cash. Which will be welcome, after the economic downturn forced China to slash investment in Africa by more than 40 percent earlier this year. The theme for the summit in Johannesburg is “Africa-China Progressing Together: Win-Win Cooperation for Common Development.” But it's a partnership that hasn't always been described as equal - with China accused of plundering Africa's rich resources.

It spans over 60 countries and will cost over a trillion dollars. The plan is to make it easier for the world to trade with China, by funding roads, railways, pipelines, and other infrastructure projects in Asia and Africa. China is loaning trillions of dollars to any country that's willing to participate and it's been a big hit with the less democratic countries in the region. This makes the BRI a risky plan as well. But China is pushing forward because its goals are not strictly economic, they're also geopolitical.

Chinese investments in African land use are growing fast. From small enterprises in forestry, agribusiness and mining, through huge infrastructure cooperation projects and contracts won by Chinese companies – in hydropower, port development, road and railway building – that gobble up forest and woodland. These developments can bring huge benefits to African economies and huge challenges to sustainability. One thing is for sure – they are changing Africa. But real understanding in both China and Africa, about what is really going on, is often weak - and those who can best help chart a sustainable course for these Chinese investments have been poorly linked. In 2013, IIED with partners launched the China-Africa Forest Governance Platform to tackle key problems in the illegal timber trade and seize opportunities for more sustainable Chinese investment in land-use sectors. The platform is a forum for projects aiming to generate evidence, strengthen capacity and dialogue, and improve policy and investment practice by Chinese companies in African forest land use. This 10-minute film tells the story so far. More details: https://www.iied.org/finding-green-path-for-china-africa

SUBSCRIBE -- https://goo.gl/jYw6so CHINA is Africa's largest trading partner and has already spent tens of billions of dollars in investment and loans - with the promise of much more to come. From roads and railways to ports, the Chinese government is backing large-scale projects across Africa as part of its so-called Belt and Road initiative. The leaders of more than 50 African countries have been in Beijing for a two-day summit. China's President Xi Jinping offered them $60bn in new financing deals. But what are the long-term financial risks? DEBT TRAP So far some countries are beginning to find it hard to repay LOANS that they applied from China.A big chunk of these LOANS is usually stolen by corrupt government officials who take advantage of weaker institutions in most African countries. KENYA Kenya has raised tax on goods to be able to repay some of the loans that have matured. This has led to high rise in cost of living to unbearable levels. Another good example is Djibouti and Ethiopia who are coming to terms with having to repay DEBTS owed to China.

A shared quest for development by China & Africa has in recent years seen intensified engagements in the political, social and economic fronts. In 2016 alone for instance, the value of Chinese commerce in Africa hit the $190 billion mark, firmly cementing China’s position as Africa’s leading trading partner. But in a rapidly changing global environment, experts assert that the potential of this cooperation is yet to be fully realized, prompting the question of how best African countries can leverage on this growing co-operation for accelerated growth.

As a result of China's reluctance to tinker with politics in Africa and its less restrictive donor aid policies, it has been able to win over the hearts of Africa including Uganda. The courtship between Uganda and China has come with benefits; millions of dollars in aid and tangible infrastructure development. So what is underpinning Chinese obsession with Africa?
