African Mining and China

The African Union formalized its resource-based development and industrialization strategy in 2009 in the African Mining Vision.  China's formal commitment to sustaining the objective of Africa's mining reform agenda has not yet been explicitly engrained into official channels of cooperation. 

Cristelle Maurin, an associate at the Centre for Chinese Studies at Stellenbosch University, published a commentary in May 2013 titled "Strategic Partnerships and Sustainable Investments: How Can China Support the African Mining Vision?" that explores the opportunities for China to engage formally with its African counterparts, and endorse the ideal and objectives of the African Mining Vision by supporting its implementation.
