Description
China’s rapidly expanding role in Africa as an energy and resource extractor reveals much of the dynamics and complexities of its growing ties with the continent. Rather than studying the subject in the framework of bilateral interactions, as most existing literature does, this article explores the impact of China’s domestic development process on the behaviour of Chinese foreign policy and business operations in Africa. Based on the author’s extensive field research in Africa and China, the article argues that much of what the Chinese government, Chinese companies and individual entrepreneurs are doing today in Africa is an externalization of China’s own modernization experiences in the past three decades. China’s interactions with African countries are reflective of its own development contradictions, and major patterns of Chinese behaviour in Africa can be attributed to complex motivations and objectives of the actors involved.
