Australia’s SBS TV network recently produced a compelling documentary on China’s surging investment in Angola. The program reaffirms the wide range of complex issues that are involved in assessing China’s impact on the country and the continent as a whole.
The program begins with an overwhelming positive response to China’s construction of desperately need infrastructure, particularly the desperately need upgrade of the country’s century old rail-line that was original built by the British. These new rail lines and highways will be the key to connect Angola’s major cities with its remote, far-flung countryside, that until now has been largely disconnected from one another.
