SAIIA’s China and Africa research investigates the emerging relationship between China and Africa, analyses the character and content of China’s trade and foreign policy towards the continent, and studies the implications of this strategic co-operation in the political, military, economic and diplomatic fields. It seeks to develop an understanding of the motives, rationale and institutional structures guiding China’s Africa policy, and to study China’s growing power and influence so that it will help rather than hinder development prospects in Africa. Research deals with different dimensions of Chinese continental engagement (energy, resources, trade, investment, aid, development, agriculture, peace, security and multilateralism). A ‘China-Africa Toolkit’ has been developed and is targeted at policy makers in Africa.
The “China and Africa” project was funded (2007-2011) by the UK Department for International Development (Dfid) and the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA). Current China-Africa research is funded through the main Global Powers & Africa programme budget.
