China and Africa will increasingly lean into one another in the decade ahead but for starkly different reasons, argues Gyude Moore in a provocative new column published today in African Business Magazine.
Moore, a senior policy fellow at the Center for Global Development in Washington, D.C. and a former Liberian public works minister, contends that because the United States and Europe will choose not to compete with China in Africa, African countries will increasingly become more dependent on Chinese financial, economic and diplomatic engagement. Similarly, Moore argues, “China will increasingly turn to Africa as it faces hostility elsewhere.”
