The Washington Post published on 3 March 2017 an article titled "Do African Exports to China Hurt Labor Rights? Here's What We Found" by Christopher Adolph, Vanessa Quince, and Aseem Prakash, all at the University of Washington.

In the case of specific countries such as Mauritania and the Congo, where exports to China have risen sharply, the negative effect was, however, substantial.
