Is Egypt Embracing the Chinese Model of Development?

World Politics Review published on 16 March 2017 a commentary titled "Egypt and Other Arab States Embrace a Chinese Model of Development" by Kyle Haddad-Fonda.

The commentary makes the argument that Egypt and other Arab countries are pursuing the Chinese model of development even as the China State Construction Engineering Corporation dropped out of a $300 billion project to create a new Egyptian capital in the desert 30 miles east of Cairo. The author bases his conclusion on statements by several Arab spokespersons. The reality may be closer to Egypt's new capital in the desert--perhaps a mirage.
