Japan's rivalry with China heats up in Africa
Tensions between Asian rivals Japan and China have extended their battleground further afield, to Africa. China has accused the Japanese Prime Minister of trying to hijack their diplomatic efforts in the continent. Shinzo Abe's last stop in Ethiopia, is an attempt to strengthen relations between the two countries.
Glory to China!
Just saw a series of documentaries on China's involvement in Africa. Scarily huge investments there, no doubt they are eyeing after Africa's immense resources. But hey.. at least infrastructure gets built, and that will help Africa develop faster.
You two can compete in rebuilding all the countries the US has destroyed in the past 20-30 years.
compete with China, Japan should learn to speak good English first..
Well the more competitors the better. They can make better offers while reducing the infulcence of each other so Africa should Play the game.
Japan is more than 300% of GDP in debt right now. They can't afford to compete with China in Africa haha. Go back home Shinzo Abe, we have the money. You do not. You're just embarrassing the Japanese people.
hahaha! Great! This pissing match between china and japan will help africa!
huh. China's building stuff for them to use, infrastructure is key to developing their country, something that colonialists have witheld from africa on purpose to maintain low wages etc; and come on, those old colonialists trading manufactured goods for resources have turned to trading political 'donations' and 'aid' for resources. So much cheaper!
