A very good article which says it all. While the Chinese infrastructure may not last for decades when it comes to quality, it is readily available, and China has substantial experience in building up large infrastructures, both inside their own country and abroad. And that is exactly what many African countries need. Of course, China will want something in return in future, probably raw material, but so has the West in the past. It will be a challenge for the West to match the Chinese offers.
