China's "Aid" to Africa published on 21 October 2015 a brief analysis titled "Chinese 'Aid' to Africa: Be Careful Comparing Apples and Dragon Fruits" by several professors and researchers associated with the College of William and Mary and Heidelberg University.

The authors note that most of China's "aid" to Africa is not overseas development assistance (ODA), but rather commercially-oriented forms of Chinese state financing known as other official flows (OOF).  China's ODA to Africa from 2000 to 2013 has averaged about $2.25 billion annually compared to $6.62 billion annually from the United States.
