Chinas Engagement in Afrika: Rhetorik und Realität
China' s engagement in Africa has increased in recent years and the China-Africa Summit of November 2006 clearly shows China's fields. Although, compared to the last summit in 2003, the fi elds and scope of cooperation do not differ substantially, China has clearly embarked on a strategy to realize its core political, security and economic interests by supporting African countries in a number of ways. This commitment is not mere rhetoric or symbolic politics, but has resulted in concrete steps. Measures proposed and taken by the Chinese government include, among others, financial aid, unconditional credits, investments and the reduction of import tariffs, allegedly without any interference in the receiving countries' internal matters. In return, Africa accommodates China by granting access to energy resources as well as by supporting the Chinese case in the international arena. Africa benefits economically from the Chinese engagement but, as examples will show, is not free from political influence and interference exerted by China.
