China's Maritime Silk Road and Africa

The Asia-Pacific Journal published on 16 March 2015 an analysis titled "Africa and China's 21st Century Maritime Silk Road" by Alvin Cheng-Hin Lim, a research fellow with the Longus Institute for Development and Strategy.

The author argues the Maritime Silk Road promises an intensification of Chinese investment in African infrastructure and should be seen as one of China's new engines of growth.  He concludes that China's presence in Africa is that of a partner in economic development rather than that of an aspiring neocolonial hegemon.
