China's DRC Roads Redux

While searching for an update on China's multi-billion infrastructure contract in the DRC, I came across a blog posting on the website of a Canadian company, Kilo Goldmines, Ltd., which had a photo of Chinese road construction in the DRC (right). Accompanying it was this note:

"While there are critics of this deal and pundits who claim this is the 'second colonisation' of the DRC, this barter deal is widely seen as a key catalyst to help jump start the economy and rebuild core infrastructure that has been neglected for decades. Kilo is a primary beneficiary of some of this newly developed infrastructure including rehabilitated roads around its Somituri project."
