#3: Tanzania is looking to China for tourism and investment.
From my conversations with Tanzanians, most do not seem too keen on the ever-growing presence of Chinese-led infrastructure projects and low-cost consumer goods.  But in Tanzania, all eyes are on Chinese tourists and investments.

#4: Do poor countries have too many entrepreneurs?
