Abstract

Cet article analyse l'impact des relations commerciales entre la Chine et l'Afrique, tant au niveau régional que national, à travers un échantillon de pays. Il confirme que ces relations commerciales donnent lieu tant à des gains qu'à des pertes. Au delà de cette constatation, l'article souligne que la structure existante des échanges entre l'Afrique et la Chine – renforcée par l'envergure croissante de la place occupée par la Chine – ne sert pas les objectifs de l'Afrique à plus long terme. Autrement dit, ces échanges ne contribuent pas à une diversification de la structure économique et commerciale de la région, et n'assure donc pas l'objectif de développement industriel de pays africains. Cet article suggère que, dans beaucoup de cas, les effets négatifs des relations commerciales entre la Chine et l'Afrique peuvent être plus importants que les effets positifs. En conséquence, des décisions politiques concertées devraient être prises, décision qui soient bien adaptées aux circonstances spécifiques de chaque pays. De façon générale, ces décisions consisteraient de mesures politiques visant le renforcement de l'accès des économies africaines au marché chinois ainsi que l'élimination des contraintes de capacité de production.European Journal of Development Research (2009) 21, 485–505. doi:10.1057/ejdr.2009.28
