China’s footprint in Ghana shows that its interests in Africa go beyond the often-exaggerated reports of China’s scramble for natural resources in Africa. Even resource-poor African countries are benefitting from China’s economic cooperation with Africa. By helping to build productive infrastructure and expand access to new technologies, China is helping Ghana combat poverty in ways that humanitarian aid and the distribution-consumption-focused poverty alleviation strategies do not. A recent World Bank report notes that technology diffusion helps developing countries reduce poverty, but weak basic infrastructure systems impose a major limitation on the domestic dissemination of a range of technologies that can be employed in many developing countries.
