As far as China is doing Foreign Direct Investment to secure some resources, for instance in France with the Château Grand Moueys bought by the alcohol manufacturer Jin Chang Zang where 90% of the productions rejoin the Chinese market, when not directly doing land grabbing operations in Africa I was wondering if we were able to call China a new colonialist power, imperialist one or both?
I used the following definitions:
Colonization (or colonisation) is a process by which a central system of power dominates the surrounding land and its components.
Colonization refers strictly to migration, for example, to settler colonies in America or Australia, trading posts, and plantations, while colonialism to the existing indigenous peoples of styled "new territories". - Colonization page of Wikipedia 27/02/19
Imperialism is policy or ideology of extending a nation's rule over foreign nations, often by military force or by gaining political and economic control of other areas.2 It was common around the world throughout recorded history, but diminishing in the late 20th century. In recent times, it has been considered morally reprehensible and prohibited by international law. Therefore, the term is used in international propaganda to denounce an opponent's foreign policy.- Imperialism page of Wikipedia 27/02/19
