Xi Jinping Thought and Implications for Africa

The South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) published in March 2018 an analysis titled "China in the Era of 'Xi Jinping Thought': Five Key Trends for Africa" by Cobus van Staden, senior researcher at SAIIA.

The paper identifies five trends that could affect Africa, emerging from China's 19th Communist Party Congress, held in Beijing in October 2017. The trends are: strengthening of CPC rule in both China's internal and external behavior, the full institutionalization of the Belt and Road Initiative, China's support for UN reform, the expansion of China's military role on the global stage, and stricter Internet control.
