China and the Development of Ports in Africa

The Center for Strategic and International Studies published in June 2019 a study titled "Assessing the Risks of Chinese Investment in Sub-Saharan African Ports" by Judd Devermont, Amelia Cheatham and Catherine Chiang.

Chinese entities have financed, constructed or have operational involvement in at least 46 ports in Sub-Saharan Africa. The ports fuel African growth, reinforce China's image as a development partner, and increase its political influence but also raise questions about future use for Chinese security purposes.
