Chinese Loans to Africa 2000 to 2014

The China Africa Research Initiative at Johns Hopkins University recently published working paper number 4 dated April 2016 titled "Eastern Promises: New Data on Chinese Loans in Africa, 2000 to 2014" by Deborah Brautigam and Jyhjong Hwang.

The paper provides an overview of a new data base on Chinese loans, the scale of the loans, their African recipients and the sectors where borrowers are investing. The study concludes that Chinese financiers loaned about $86 billion to African governments and state-owned enterprises between 2000 and 2014.
