Is 60 billion dollars enough to convince African leaders that China is their most reliable partner? President Xi Jingping is in South Africa reassuring leaders from across the continent with hard cash. Which will be welcome, after the economic downturn forced China to slash investment in Africa by more than 40 percent earlier this year. The theme for the summit in Johannesburg is “Africa-China Progressing Together: Win-Win Cooperation for Common Development.” But it's a partnership that hasn't always been described as equal - with China accused of plundering Africa's rich resources.

This is a short video highlighting the development that has happened in Africa and the reasons people should consider investing in this continent. Africa has its problems like everywhere but it also has bustling cities, fabulous wildlife, educated populations, natural beauty spots, business men and women, entrepreneurs, fashion, music, restaurants and bars.

The majority of the statistics in this video are based on the most recent McKinsey reports and Ernst and Young's Africa Attractiveness s...
