China is sitting on a mountain of cash and there is speculation that the country is going on a trillion dollar spending spree. Jonathan Fenby, managing director of China Researcher, says that there’s going to be big outward investment from China into resources in Africa and Latin America. Meanwhile whilst making plans to revive the old silk route from East to West, China is also buying up companies around the world. China’s president, Xi Jinping, is considered to be the most powerful man in the world today. Al Jazeera’s Counting the Cost asks what’s next for China’s new world order.
