Europe and China

China's growing presence in Africa has been a cause for concern in European capitals. While China's expansion into Africa is driven by its demand for resources, diplomatic considerations, and a strategy to open up new export markets, European policy-makers are concerned about the modes of development and governance Beijing favours and the regimes it supports in Africa. Europe and China pursue diverging concepts of development cooperation. A diverse group of Chinese actors - ranging from government, state-owned enterprises, to development banks and private companies - have established themselves firmly in Africa and have successfully cultivated ties with numerous African governments. Europe is alarmed that is value-driven ('software') policies have been undermined by China's pragmatic and practical policies focusing on 'hardware' infrastructure, investment, and resource extraction.
