Aid to local economiesNot everybody in Africa is happy about China's presence on the continent.China, however, has a steady policy of providing assistance and training in agricultural techniques and public health issues.At the 2018 Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation which took place in Beijing, President Xi Jinping unveiled eight major initiatives which included purchasing more African goods and encouraging Chinese companies to expand investments to promote industrialization in Africa. In addition, Xi pledged to provide 50,000 government-funded scholarships for African youngsters and invited 2,000 of them to visit China.China now ranks among the top 10 bilateral global health donors to the continent.Although the exact number is unknown, China has dispatched several Chinese medical teams to Africa and assisted in the construction of health facilities and training of African health care workers. At the same time, China uses its assistance in public health to strengthen its diplomatic relations with African governments.Those who ignore China's assertive policies in Africa will do so at their own risk.
