China Gets Mixed Public Response in North Africa

Arab Barometer posted on 24 July 2020 a summary of public opinion polling titled "Is This China's Moment in MENA?" by Michael Robbins.

The public opinion polling included six countries in North Africa: Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, and Sudan.  A majority of respondents in Tunisia, Libya, and Sudan favored stronger economic relations with China while only a minority responded positively in Morocco, Algeria, and Egypt. 

A majority of respondents in three countries--Sudan, Morocco, and Egypt--favored more foreign assistance from China.  Surprisingly, only half of the respondents in Tunisia wanted more foreign assistance and less than half replied affirmatively in Libya and Algeria.
