China and the Addis Ababa-Djibouti Railway

The Los Angeles Times published on 4 August 2017 an article titled "China Says It Built a Railway in Africa Out of Altruism, But It's More Strategic Than That" by Jonathan Kaiman.

Kaiman notes that U.S. engagement in Africa is at a low ebb. China sees an opportunity to improve transportation in the Horn of Africa and make itself the dominant economic partner on a continent that is about to see an explosion of new cheap labor, cellphone users, and urban consumers.
