China-South Africa Relationship

The South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) published in August 2014 a monograph titled "South Africa and China: The Making of a Partnership" by Chris Alden, London School of Economics, and Yu-Shan Wu, a researcher at SAIIA.

The paper concludes that China and South Africa share a similar global vision and are working towards closer strategic cooperation that takes account of the structure of bilateral economic ties, domestic diversity, and overlapping interests.  The two countries have differences that continue to shape ties and distinguish them from China's relations with other African countries.  South Africa has a vibrant civil society and China is seen as a key competitor in sectors South Africa views as strategic.
