New China-Africa Assessment

The Africa Research Institute, an independent non-partisan think tank based in London, published in October 2013 a brief analysis of the current state of China-Africa relations titled "Between Extremes: China and Africa." Among its conclusions were:
  • China is engaged in globalization and not colonialism in Africa.
  • Aid is a modest component of China's engagement on the continent.
  • The "win-win" discourse is misleading.
  • China's policy of non-interference is ambiguous and evolving.
  • The onus is on African policy makers to guide the China-Africa relationship.
