The Suitors of Sub-Saharan Africa

Sub-Saharan Africa has long intrigued foreign powers; its resources are simply too abundant for them to ignore. And though the attention the region receives is not new, the political dynamics that command their attention are. No longer beholden to the politics of colonialism or of the Cold War, sub-Saharan Africa now has more suitors than it once did. These suitors, most notably China, Japan, India and Turkey, see the region as a commodity-rich, economically dynamic destination for investment opportunity. Western countries will be drawn to the region, too, albeit for different reasons: They are compelled by security imperatives to stop illegal migration and potential terrorist threats.
