China is Turning Africa into its Own Economic Colony

Published

on

Michael Snyder of TheMostImportantNews.com exposed China’s ambitions in Africa.

Africa has historically been a target for Islamic and European colonizers.

Now, China wants to assume this role as a colonizer, but with a different twist. Instead of conquering Africa using military force, it plans on using economic arrangements instead.

In order to acquire such infrastructure, many African nations have had to go into significant debt, leaving China in an advantageous position.

Although there is some validity to China exploiting this relation for economic gain, Forbes pointed out that China’s moves in Africa are about turning Africa into another Chinese continent.”

According to certain estimates, about two million Chinese citizens are already living in Africa.

China has taken its famous “special economic zones” and transplanted them to Africa. One of these zones has been placed right next to Lagos, Nigeria. These cities act as investor friendly economic jurisdictions based on the model that was employed in the Chinese city of Shenzhen in the 1980s.

Snyder noted that “In these ‘special economic zones’, you will find Chinese factories staffed with Chinese managers that are supervising Chinese workers that are using Chinese equipment to make their products.”

China is also Africa’s largest trading partner, with Sino-African trade rounding out at $200 billion per year. McKinsey reports that over 10,000 Chinese-owned firms are present in the African continent and the value of Chinese business in the continent since 2005 is valued at more than $2 trillion. $300 billion in investment is currently on the table.

Although China has pivoted since its Maoist days, it is using soft power in a way that projects its power on an expansionary basis.

The U.S. will need to get out of its quagmires in the Middle East and re-focus its foreign policy by containing China through as many diplomatic means as possible.

Will Italy Exit the EU Because of its Lackluster Response to the Wuhan Flu?

Published

on

Affar Italiani reports that leader of the Italian political party League and former Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini recently announced a possible withdrawal of Italy from the European Union due to its sluggish response to the Wuhan Virus.

“This is crazy. Europe needs another fifteen days to decide what to do, whether to help, whom and how. In the midst of an emergency when people die, now from pneumonia, tomorrow, possibly from poverty,”  the politician stated

Salvini cited Italy’s confrontation with the EU over aid to fight against the Wuhan virus and the refusal of Germany and other Northern European countries to help Italy as reasons for the southern European country leaving the EU and the eurozone.

“This is a den of snakes and jackals. First we defeat the virus, then remember Europe. And, if necessary, we say goodbye. Without even thanking,” the former Minister of Internal Affairs asserted.

The EU used to serve a purpose as a common market for European members states and a cohesive political unit the prevented fratricidal wars between European states.

It could also serve as a civilizational defense bloc against the potential hordes of African and Islamic migrants that will continue coming into the region thanks to its lax border policies and the demographic realities in these regions — booming populations which many of these Third World countries cannot accommodate.

Salvini has every reason to be concerned.

If the EU cannot fulfill the most basic of government functions — protecting its members — Italy should leave and craft its own strategic regional bloc with countries that are serious about protecting their national sovereignty.
