Abstract:

Popular western media coverage of Chinese economic activity in Africa portrays a huge economy hungry for raw materials to fuel its relentless economic growth. The treatment of the subject, however, has tended to be anecdotal and conspiratorial, not empirical. Furthermore, less attention is paid in western media to the sale of Chinese products in African markets. This paper will examine the historical trend of China in African export and import profiles from 1980 to the present. It seeks to compare the position of China as export destination and import source for African countries’ products with four other countries: 1) The African country’s former colonial power, 2) The USA, 3) Japan, 4) India. It seeks to determine whether China has become a dominant source of imports and destination of exports for all African countries, and if so which ones. These data will then be considered in light of a number of key changes and events, such as the devaluation of the CFA franc in 1994, the fixing of the Euro in 1999, the liberalization of textile trade through the WTO in 2005.
