Summary: To surpass the U.S. in economic might, China needs access to cheap energy and raw materials. That's why it is now heavily invested in developing countries-most notably in Africa, where millions of Chinese citizens have relocated. Mozambique, which has China to thank for its remarkable 10 percent growth rate, offers an eye-opening case study. This film travels in and around the capital city of Maputo, highlighting examples of Chinese-backed development and assembling various perspectives on China's involvement in the African "lion economies." Surveying a vast, fertile field with his African business partner, Chinese-born rice producer Luo Haoping describes new agricultural techniques he's shared with local growers, while Lyle White, a South African expert on China, sheds light on the complex forces behind this and similar endeavors. Several other experts are also featured in discussions about China's future as a global economic force and development leader.
