    [h=6]China has a problem -- its population does not match its resources and gross domestic product. China's more than 1.3 billion people don't have the resources to adequately care for themselves [source: University Nebraska at Omaha]. This has led China to begin exporting its people, in a sense, by setting up shop in other parts of the world. Look no further than Africa, where China has rapidly developed its presence during the last decade, in countries like Nigeria and Angola, among others. During that time, more than 750,000 Chinese have moved to Africa [source: Malone]. Some experts contend that the plan is to increase this number to the hundreds of millions, helping to put a dent into China's natural resource problem by tapping into Africa's resources, while thinning the herd in the home country [source: Malone]. Air and sea routes are increasing between the two nations as massive deals are made for commodities, trade, labor and military cooperation. Chinese private schools, embassies and cultural centers are popping up in places like Rwanda, Nairobi and Angola. Angola even has its own "Chinatown" district.
    In return, countries in Africa get a willing trade partner and assistance and weaponry for its military factions. Africa also receives the supposed benefit of jobs and infrastructure building. While trade has increased from 5 million Yuan to 6 billion in the last 10 years, many contend that Africa is getting the short end of the stick, importing cheap Chinese toys and goods, while exporting valuable commodities like oil and timber. It's estimated that 70 percent of African timber ends up in Chinese ports, a figure that hints at massive deforestation [source: Malone]. There are also assertions that Chinese mining operations in Africa are staffed with African laborers earning less than one Yuan per day, which is about 14 cents [source:Malone]. The weapons sent to Africa often supply arms that help to fuel the continent's many civil wars. And in some parts of Africa, Chinese-only communities have gates, and blacks are not allowed to enter.
    Similarly, China has reached out to Latin America as well, bypassing the United States as Brazil's No. 1 trading partner, and coming in second to the United States in Argentina, Costa Rica, Chile, Peru and Venezuela. With this kind of reach, and a population at well over a billion people, it's no wonder that a large percentage of the global financial news focuses on China. But is China poised to become a true superpower?[/h]

    China has almost surpassed US as word's leading economy and the number one trader. US is just trying to spread ill-natured propaganda in a bid to paralyse China's self-effort to excel but all of its maleficent plots have been in vain. The recent decision by EU to succumb and ask for economic boost from China to bailout the indebted Eurozone states means that China is on the brink of becoming the global powerhouse.

    China is already a powerhouse, that is why EU asked for help from there and not from US their traditional economic partners

    USA is still no 1. Yes uchumi unaweza kuwa unayumba but dont let them fool you. China watendelea kuwa 'factory of the worl' wenziwe wameamua kuwa super tech. Plus inabidi uelewe ukubwa wa uchumi wa China na wa nchi kama German, USA. Then kuna tatizo jingine kubwa, population ya China ni kubwa sana na bado inazidi kukuwa. Na nani anawez kusema for sure kuwa political structure ya China itabakia kuwa kama ilivyo forever?
