Here is quote from the article written by Evan Ellis  probably in 2019, I would advise to read the article. before jumping to conclusions ,link provided.

 

With the likely return of the PPP to power in 2019 elections,57 its leadership is talking about a new generation of infrastructure and other projects likely to be built by the Chinese and funded by the revenues from oil, including the resurrec-tion of the Amaila Falls hydroelectric project and an interconnection to the Bra-zilian power grid (likely to be built by a major Chinese company active in Brazil such as China State Grid, or State Power Industrial Corporation), the construc-tion of a deep water port near Berbice, and an associated road and rail link to Brazil.58 It is also possible to anticipate the participation of Chinese oil companies in future oil exploration and development licensing rounds as well as the entry of Chinese petroleum service companies in the support sector, and possibly the ex-pansion of Bosai’s Reunion magnesium mine in the northwest of the country.59While the PPP has also expressed an interest to work closely with the US and Western investors,60 such projects are likely to give the Chinese particular weight in the economic and political dynamics of the country in a future PPP govern-ment (as well as, to a lesser extent, in a APNU one).
