In pictures: China in Angola
Non-renewable resource

For the moment Angola has become China’s leading energy supplier but it has mortgaged future production of a valuable, non-renewable resource to pay for reconstruction work.

In the short term Angola will benefit from Chinese-built roads, hospitals, schools, hotels, football stadiums, shopping centres and telecommunications projects.

It remains to be seen if in the long-term the two countries will forge a genuine partnership of equals.
