Article Photos: AP IMPACT: China surpasses US as top global trader 14/31

In this Oct. 10, 2012 photo, Joseph Makori, a 44-year-old professional driver, speaks to a reporter as he waits to pick up work next to a new 50-kilometer (30-mile) highway leading north of the capital of Nairobi in Kenya. The $300 million road was built by three Chinese companies and financed by the African Development Bank and the Chinese Exim Bank. It has cut a trip that took several hours 18 months ago to 10 minutes, said Makori. (AP Photo/Ben Curtis)
