China’s World: Partnering with the Giant

Public Radio International and the BBC have teamed up to produce a special radio program called “China’s World.” The first installment, “Partnering with the Giant,” examines China’s relationship with Kazakhstan and Argentina:

The first stand-alone hour looks at how two countries are tapping China’s economic and political strength in their own quest for economic development. The BBC’s Oleg Boldyrev and Dina Zhansagimova travel to Kazakhstan, one of the largest independent states to emerge after the break-up of the Soviet Union. They try to find out how this new and promising oil-rich country is positioning itself with respect to Russia, its former ruler, and China, its giant neighbor to the east. In the second half of the program, BBC Latin America correspondent Hernando Alvarez travels to Argentina, where Chinese demand for soybeans is transforming the economy.
