I've never met Bao Bao Wan but everything I've read about her makes me smile. From her go-getting globetrotting and unusual upbringing which saw her sent off to school in America at age nine, to her outstanding eye for luxury jewellery design - her life has been described as 'a 21st century fairytale' but to me that doesn't quite ring true.

China's engagement with Africa is viewed with suspicion especially in the West, with some commentators and politicians describing it as a new imperialist.
