Chinese slowdown hits African exports

Graham Watson

14th January 2016

This brief BBC piece highlights the extent to which Africa is dependent upon China but not vice versa: the Chinese slowdown has seen African exports to China fall by nearly 40%, equally Chinese investment in Africa has also fallen by that amount. This isn't reciprocated: in 2015, African demand for Chinese goods has risen by 3.6%. There are some useful links to other longer analysis pieces on the Chinese-African economic relationship.
