I am a freelance journalist originally from Romania. In the past three years, I have published over 400 articles on topics, ranging from political affairs in Eastern Europe to environmental abuses in African countries. Some of the publications that I have contributed to include Al Jazeera (http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/profile/raluca-besliu-.html), Yale Global (http://yaleglobal.yale.edu/content/china-and-us-court-africa) and CNN iReport (http://ireport.cnn.com/people/RalucaBesliu). At the end of October, I will be heading to Budapest, Hungary, to cover the Syrian refugee influx.
The three articles from the globalist range from Russia-Moldova rapport to Japan and China's complicated relation with the two Sudans.
This article focuses on the U.S.-China competition for the growing African market.
