China Expands Presence in Sao Tome and Principe

Eurasia Review published on 24 November 2015 a major analysis titled "Sao Tome E Principe: A Key Piece in Beijing's Chessboard? - Analysis" by Gustavo Placido Dos Santos, a researcher at the Portuguese Institute of International Relations and Security.

Sao Tome and Principe, which is one of three African countries that has diplomatic relations with Taiwan, signed an agreement in October 2015 with China's state-owned China Harbor Engineering Company to build a $800 million deep-water port.  This project coincides with China's growing interest in oil discoveries in the Gulf of Guinea.
