China populating Africa: It's a two way partnership

Sir Francis Galton, pioneer of eugenics, the theory that Hitler embraced in his thoughts of a supreme German race, wrote in 1873, that China should send people to populate Africa. While the idea didn’t get immediate traction, 750,000 Chinese settled in Africa in 10 years. A strong presence has been developed and an infrastructure is being established.

It seems that this was a very strategic move on China’s part because mutual supply and demand now exist between the two and a strong business connection has been developed, in the face of significant international displeasure. China needs resources and Africa needs someone with which to trade, but that doesn’t mean that everyone is happy.
