THE IMPACT OF CHINA-AFRICA RELATIONS; A CASE STUDY OF KENYA

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The increase in China's economic and political involvement in Africa is arguably the most momentous development on the continent today. China has made rapid influence to the African continent, with African leaders largely welcoming Chinese involvement with open arms. The establishment of modern Sino-African relations dates back to the late 1950s when China signed the first official bilateral trade agreement with Algeria, Egypt, Guinea, Somalia, Morocco and Sudan. It has been giving grants and loans to African states which in turn has boosted their economy. The 21st Century has been characterised by closer ties between China and Africa. This Study therefore seeks to analyse these ties and its influence in sectors like economy and diplomacy. It also examines the opportunities and problems that come with the interaction between China and Africa. From the first Chapter where there's an introduction and background of the study, followed by Chapter two where it examines interdependency of states. It evaluates states relations in aspects of economy and trade and diplomatic relations.  The Third Chapter is an overview of China-Africa relations. Chapter four focuses on Kenya as a case study and the impact these relations have on Kenya's trade and economy. Finally there's a summary of the conclusions from the study and recommendations.
