Yes! Rwanda has done it. India is in process. Barcelona is another model. People are starting to wake up.

ethiopia and african exchanges with china

some references from todays unctad/ysi/ineteconomics summer school on china-africa
http://www.sais-cari.org/ hopkins china=africa research

africans need to understand each of china's development banks - the fact that they don't slot into american definitions is often because the breton woods model of aid is stuck in 60 + year old rules not relevant to modern development
china development bank  -ref 1
China Exim Bank has been participating in the G-20 initiative and has concluded agreements with a number of countries.
Our data on China-Africa loan commitments suggest that China Exim Bank has provided close to 75 percent of all Chinese loan commitments in the DSSI-eligible African countries (excluding Angola, which we discuss below) and China Development Bank only 5 percent. Chinese commercial banks and companies account for the rest.
a representative from gov of ethiopia, arkebe okubay has a lot of experience- africans would be wise to link to that before worrying about rumors team trump has tried to spread
