Compose a 2000 words assignment on aspects of china africa relation. Needs to be plagiarism free! As the Chinese media welcomed Beijing’s foreign policies towards Africa as the effective practice of diplomacy for increasing the dominance of China in global politics, the widespread debates over China’s motives and role in Africa have once again come under the spotlight. With the growing Chinese interests in Africa, the competition among global powers for control over Africa has further intensified. There are various perceptions about whether rapidly developing Sino-Africa relations are beneficial for African states or there are more negative effects of it (Ayodele and Olusegun 2-3). China’s massive investments and economic interests in Africa have come under close scrutiny of global powers and experts in international relations and global politics. Overall, the cryptic nature of China’s foreign policy and the skeptical approach of global leaders and experts over China’s policies in Africa have led to serious questions whether China is another exploiter, a new colonizer, or a genuine partner in the development of Africa (Ayodele and Olusegun 2-4).
The paper will try to answer this question by analyzing various aspects of China’s economic, aid, and political relations with African states over the years. Also, the paper will investigate key drivers for China’s growing interest in Africa by means of various researches and reports. Further, on the basis of available data and facts, the paper will highlight crucial positive and negative effects of China’s foreign policies towards African states.

The solid improvements in Africa and China’s relationship in the late 1950s was a direct result of China’s worsening relations with the Soviet .Union and its policies to form a counter balance power to western imperialism and Soviet hegemony. .
