In this July 18, 2012 photo, a red-and-white tape is used around the building site of the Great Mosque of Algeria in Algiers. China is now pushing into construction and engineering, where U.S. and European companies have long dominated. In Algeria, Chinese state-owned companies pushed aside established French and German rivals to win contracts to build a $12 billion cross-country highway and the $1.3 billion mosque. The mosque is set to be completed by 2015. (AP Photo/Sidali Djarboub)
