Africa, China and the US

The American Interest published on 24 July 2014 commentary titled "It's Not Just about Competition with China" by Dane Erickson, a lecturer at the Graduate School of Public Affairs at the University of Colorado. 

The August Africa Summit in Washington has led to much commentary that the event is a response to China's increased engagement in Africa.  Erickson rightly points out that this is not the case.  While there is normal commercial competition in Africa between China and the United States, the two countries also have many common interests.
