Again a lot of commercial dollars to be made by Chinese companies increasing global exposure and seeking credibility, its already happening in trickles, couple of more years it will be a flood, bit like the Japanese at Dakar in the '80's when the home economy was booming.
The big determiner will be the domestic political stability at the regional level where the event could take place.
Also kind of under the radar this year was the launch of a Chinese language dakar.com.
