Chinese Investment and Involvement in Africa and its Strategic Implications for Africa’s Future

Chinese investment and involvement on the African continent has increased significantly in the past decade. The scale of Chinese involvement can be seen throughout economic, political, and security issues across the continent. China has dedicated large resources to the development of the African continent and is slated to continue increasing its presence on the continent. The strategic implications of China’s role as Africa’s primary benefactor has yet to be seen. This paper seeks to analyze the nature of Chinese involvement in Africa and understand how the relationship between China and Africa has developed and what it means for the future.
