Presentation Title

China in Africa: How Chinese Investment is Impacting Developing Nations

Format of Presentation

15-minute lecture to be presented the Saturday of the conference

Abstract

This presentation will examine China’s relationship with various African nations such as Nigeria, Ethiopia, Angola, and Zambia. The relationship between China and these nations stems from China’s Belt and Road Initiative, which is a program created by the Chinese to invest in major infrastructure projects in nations around the world. These include projects like large ports, railway lines, and even simple roads. China has focused on several African nations which have received much more funding and investment, and the purpose of this research is to examine exactly how much money has been invested and for what projects, the effects that these projects have had on the countries they are in, and what the implications are for those countries, and for China, moving forward. This research takes an unbiased stance on the work China is undertaking, and instead looks objectively at the positive and negative impacts that Chinese investment brings to the various countries of Africa.
