When Africa meets China in Guangzhou

May 29, 2014

"Chocolate City” or “Little Africa”, as it has been dubbed by the Chinese press, is a district of Guangzhou that is home to between 20,000 and 200,000 mostly male African migrants.  Most Africans come to Guangzhou for trade - by exporting cheap Chinese goods, such as clothes and mobile phones, they can make big money.  And it’s in this bustling trading depot, where African men are meeting and marrying Chinese women in untold numbers, and starting families with their mainland brides.
