China is investing heavily in many countries around the world, much of which are under developed economically or politically unstable. This is most notable in Africa, where in the last ten years China has overtaken the US in trade as part of China’s One Belt, One Road policy. While China claims to be partaking in mutually beneficial investment, many have criticised the One Belt, One Road initiative as an example of neocolonialism.
