But at the same time don't forget the present and Africa is not exactly the place with leaking reactors.
Islam has it's above average share of nuts but Indonesia being the largest Islamic population in the world has an under average share of these murderous crackpots.
Besides, the all but democratic government and military will assure your and their own peace.
There might and will be benefits for society at large, people get jobs, knowledge is gained and other new ventures can develop.
Those benefits don't show up in the books of investment bankers but are still very real.
This map and it's resources are publicly available, any one can use it, to start with the local governments of Africa.
The problem is the local governments that with few exceptions are only interested in lining their private pockets.
As with this map institutions like the EU would be very happy to help local groups set up larger scale farming initiatives like corporations.

Quite incredibly they import foodstuff, in the colonial years they exported plus the local market was much better served.
Their biggest problem is the size of the subsistence plots and the lack of proper registration of land owner ship, present governments in the area are as a rule not exactly efficient on such subjects.
But maybe the Chinese can use this map to buy some national and local politicians in areas with a good prospect for large scale farming, something western companies are reluctant to do.
With proper management Africa can increase it's present food production at least five-fold, a win for the local people and the whole world.
Both countries have a rapid economic growth and especially Malaysia has a reasonable average level of income.
Indonesia is in size the worlds fourth largest country, all reasons to keep good neighbourly contacts with them and if the economy isn't interesting then it is at least because half of Australia goes on holidays in Kuta.
All living languages will see shifts in pronunciation but where others adapted spelling accordingly the English have largely retained the original spelling.
For work I travel a lot and I can assure you in business some other language than English can often be the difference between success and failure.
And as someone else here already stated overhearing the off-line chatter between business partners can be quite revealing, even when your command of the language is not so very good.
