  • Africa needs infrastructure, China wants to build it. So what's the problem?

      Every week seemingly brings a new announcement of a Chinese-financed mega project somewhere in Africa. This week's announcement of a $5.8 billion power station in Nigeria that will be financed and built by Chinese state-owned companies is typical of the scope and scale of Chinese lending activity in Africa. And with the Chinese money spigot opening even wider as Beijing ramps up spending on its hugely ambitiously One Belt, One Road (OBOR) global trading initiative, the Chinese are seemingly more eager than ever to loan money. All this Chinese money must be so tempting for Africa's cash-starved, infrastructure-challenged states but they should proceed cautiously warn a growing number of analysts.

China is a vast country with a seemingly endless variety of landscapes. From the modern skylines of Shanghai and Hong Kong to the ancient city walls of Xi'an, the former capital of the 'Middle Kingdom'. Imposing rice terraces contrast with stark desert scenery, massive coal factories rub shoulders with newly built cities. I have been privileged to visit China a number of times in the last decade or so, usually with a photo- and or video camera in hand, trying to capture glimpses of this ever evolving nation. Earlier this year, I took the opportunity to travel across the country for another 3 months, focusing primarily on aerial photography and filming. This little adventure took me from the Northern 'rust belt provinces' to the beautiful mountain landscapes of national parks like Zhangjiajie (often named as an inspiration for the popular Avatar movie) and Jiuzhaigou. I also visited some cities to gain an aerial perspective of China's urban development, and came across several major infrastructure projects. The rural backwaters in Guangxi province were a personal favorite to explore, with the surreal Dragon's Backbone rice terraces and karst scenery around Guilin. I edited some of this material into one single clip, trying to show some of the diversity I came across. The drone I traveled around with was the DJI Phantom 4. You will find footage from the following places in this clip (in no particular order): Zhangjiajie national park, the Yangtze River (Three Gorges), Dunhuang (sand dunes and solar panels), Guazhou (wind turbines), Hebei province (Great Wall of China), Dazhai (Dragon's Backbone rice terraces), Fujian province (Hakka 'tulou' round houses), Pingyao, Changsha (Mao Zedong memorial), Liaoning province (several industrial sites and 'ghost cities'), Guangzhou (Evergrande football stadium), Hong Kong, Shanghai, Jishou (Aizhai bridge), Hainan island, Chongqing, Guilin, Jiuzhaigou national park, Zhengzhou, Linxia (golden domed mosque), Zhangye national park, Macau, Hukou waterfalls, and Shenzhen.

Why would a foggy harbor in Shanghai get so much attention from the media? Simply because if a Chinese port is out of service, goods the world buys from China will run short of storage for the time being.

Kenya lies about 10,000 km away from China. Archaeological evidence shows that back in the 9th century, China was already being traded through the Silk Road to the eastern coast of Africa. Now, China is Kenya's biggest trading partner. The bilateral ties between the two are not limited to China any more.

  Every week seemingly brings a new announcement of a Chinese-financed mega project somewhere in Africa. This week's announcement of a $5.8 billion power station in Nigeria that will be financed and built by Chinese state-owned companies is typical of the scope and scale of Chinese lending activity in Africa. And with the Chinese money spigot opening even wider as Beijing ramps up spending on its hugely ambitiously One Belt, One Road (OBOR) global trading initiative, the Chinese are seemingly more eager than ever to loan money. All this Chinese money must be so tempting for Africa's cash-starved, infrastructure-challenged states but they should proceed cautiously warn a growing number of analysts. "Over-investing in physical infrastructure without establishing corresponding governmental institutions and legal structures can lead to economic and financial fragility," said Ricardo Reboredo, a researcher who studies Chinese development in Africa. Additionally, he adds, all those new ports and roads can also be used to make it even easier for low-cost Chinese imports to flood local markets in Africa, adding yet more pressure to the economy. Ricardo joins Eric & Cobus this week to discuss the infrastructure financing dilemma in Africa and whether it's wise for African leaders to borrow so much money from China. Join the discussion. Do you think it's wise for African governments to borrow so much money from China to build infrastructure? If not, how do you suggest these countries find the necessary financing to develop? Let us know what you think. Facebook: www.facebook.com/ChinaAfricaProject Twitter: @eolander | @stadenesque | @Rick_Reboredo
