    Lately China has been making great economic inroads into Africa. While many Africans see a win-win situation with the Chinese who appear to talk business and DO business, leaving politics alone, others are skeptical. China's "business outside politics policy" is a sharp contrast to the Euro-American model: "let's talk politics, then do business" which has left Africa in the rut for centuries. It is no surprise that many of the nay-sayers are European and American who might very well have reasons to fear China's phenomenal economic expansions. Do you think Africa's shift in focus toward the East is a good thing?
    Can our foreign policy sustain the challenge of super powers competition?
    Do we need to reshape our foreign policy featuring 20-50 years to come?

    Africa is very complicated and is not correct to judge Africa as a group.
