China, Africa, US and the War on Terror

The Confucius Institute at the University of Johannesburg published in October 2017 a paper titled "Implications of the US-led War on Terror for Africa-China Relations" by Bhaso Ndzendze, research intern at the University of Johannesburg Confucius Institute.

The author of this curious paper concludes that the US war on terror in Africa has created a better environment for Chinese investment. This could, in turn, trigger increased US investment since the United States "has committed itself" [it has?] to matching or exceeding investments from China. Consequently, the US-led war on terror has served as a catalyst for Chinese investment in and aid to Africa.
