China's challenge to the US in Africa

By BBC Business News

One of the great stories of globalisation has been the steady spread of Chinese business interests across the face of Africa.

China's trade flows with Africa recently overtook those of the United States.

Some observers are concerned about the political leverage that Beijing may now be exerting in the continent, which used to be dominated by former European colonial powers.

But is China's recent investment in Africa really a miracle?
