China is pledging greater support for Africa On March 8, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said there will be no weakening of China’s support for Africa, pledging greater support for the continent.

Chinese Ministry of Commerce spokesperson Shen Danyang said that China’s work in Africa benefits local communities, meets regional demands, creates jobs and tax revenue for local governments, and upgrades local industries.

Investment in Africa involves a wide range of areas, including agriculture, infrastructure projects such as railways and manufacturing, and the service industry, focusing on sectors such as logistics, catering and culture. Rebutting accusations that China is exploiting Africa’s natural resources, Shen said that less than 20 percent of China’s total investment in the continent has been in the mining industry.
