China and Africa

There was a fascinating little piece on BBC WS last night. We are often told about the US taking oil from African countries. Well, China too, with its increasing consumption, is more and more seeking oil and other raw materials from Angola and so on.

African countries (or rather their leaders) really like dealing with China, since it does not try to 'interfere' and ask awkward questions about human rights, unlike the US and European countries.
