Chinese Thugs robbing Poor Africans and South Amaricans and promoting Corruption in already poor and corrupt society :
Cheeni maal chale to Channd thak nahi toh Raat tak
In 2000, China was the leading source of imports for only a few African countries: Sudan, Gambia, Benin and Djibouti. But as this infographics shows, 20 years later the Asian superpower is now the top supplier of goods for over 30 nations on the continent.
The China-Africa connection has been fostered intensely over the last two decades. As reported
by Statista's research expert for Angola, Kenya and Tanzania, Julia Faria: "The value of Chinese exports to African countries
jumped from five billion U.S. dollars to 110 billion". It's not just a one-way street, however: "African exports to China
also increased, though at a slower pace. In 2020, total export value to China reached nearly 62 billion U.S. dollars, a slowdown caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The growing Chinese demand for raw materials has found a strong supplier in Africa, with exports valued at around 14 billion U.S. dollars in 2020."
Far beyond being a simple trade relationship, China has been the largest foreign investor in Africa for a number of years now. Additionally, the country was the source of 25 percent of infrastructure funding in the continent in 2018 - the second highest share that year and only second to the financial commitments from national African governments.
This chart shows the top source country for imports in African countries in 2000 and 2020.
