Actually, the Chinese business development program implementation in Africa is the most agressive of all time. It seems that the American business community is not realizing or is somehow, neglecting the African business potentialites. But infortunately, time is running out, and dragging ours feet here will just worsen the Chinese monopoly in the African market. It's time for the American business community to grab the bull by the horns, and to share the African market wealth with the Chinese! Because, the African market share will not be open forever.
Africa is without doubt the most exciting and most enchanting continent in which to do business.
These are the kinds of question we can answer for you, ensuring you get the most from your investment into Africa.
The Western World has tended to see Africa as a problem to be solved. By contrast, China has looked to Africa as a new investment opportunity. China's trade with Africa has risen from $12 billion in 2002 to around $40 billion in 2006. China tends now to be the most important trade partner for Africa. The China's prime minister, Wen Jiabao, announced in December 2005 that trade with Africa was set to increase to $100 billion within five years. Africa's impressive endowment of natural resources has therefore exercised a strong pull. China is now the world's second largest consumer of oil after the United States; almost a third of its oil imports currently come from Africa. China has also seen Africa as a potential market for its own products, particularly textiles, clothing, furniture and footwear.
In the recent past, trade between Africa and China has been doubling every year. Why? Because the local firms cannot efficiently compete against the Chinese companies who have a clear advantage in terms of human and financial resources. The fact that there is no local force that could counterbalance China's aggressive expansion or even make it reevaluate economic policies means that China has carte blanche on the local African markets. Moreover, most of the raw materials Africa has to offer can be easily absorbed by the huge Chinese market. China has the technology to exploit Africa's resources, the advantageous international position, and a seat in the Security Council that helps it protect its new African allies from international sanctions. Also, it can effectively absorb the African products into its huge market. But that's not what appeals most to African leaders. Any superpower could virtually make the African leaders the same offer.

For many years, Africa has been begging. Mistakenly, Westerners thought Africa was begging for money. No! The truth is that the African states were asking for buyers, and China was the first to realize it. Africa has many goods to sell - oil, gold, pearls, diamonds, copper, iron, cotton, vanilla, cocoa, and tobacco, among others, mostly unexplored by Western countries. As of 2007, most African states have some sort of economic agreement with China. What is alarming is that some of these states are offering exclusive access to their natural resources in exchange for low interest loans, projects financing, and direct investment or bilateral exporting though exploitive deals, such as selling oil at under market price.
