Building bridges: votes not oil count in Africa

Professor Deborah Bräutigam first went to Africa in 1983 to research Chinese engagement, and never stopped.

Here the author of The Dragon's Gift: The Real Story of China in Africa reveals why the West are comforted by seeing China as a threat.

The leading expert also discusses what steps the Chinese are taking to avoid being labelled as a non-market economy, and how its government is going about getting backing across the African continent for its policies.
