Yes sorry !!


You could talk about counterfeit goods in China and how that ruins ties with USA
China's rapidly advancing economy is soon set to overtake USA
China and India are set to become the next big superpowers
India is afraid of China due to its large military and territorial disputes
Russia is against the EU and the West

Hope this helps a bit

Do you think it’s worth mentioning the relationship between China & Africa & whether its neo-colonial or not? Or helping them develop eg infrastructure

Hi, you could talk about how it causes tensions between the West and China as there are concerns that China is gaining too much political influence in African nations through their investments into Africa's infrastructure etc. This in turn threatens Western superpower nations from, for example, importing raw resources from these African nations as African nations may opt to trade with China instead. That's just one example. Hope this helps. :smile:
