Africa, unveiled that China’s investment in Africa increased from $ 22 billion in 2012 to $32.35 billion in 2014 with over 3000 Chinese companies operating across the continent. As trends indicate Chinese Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is increasing at a rapid rate.

African countries through more than 2,500 development projects, with a total of approximately $7.5 billion. Most notably investing in infrastructure, telecommunication, energy generation and supply, manufacturing and industry as well as agriculture. See the newsletter here
