Published: March 13, 2014

This policy brief is based on a paper published by the China Institute at the University of Alberta in 2014. It identifies and compares Canada and China’s strategies and policy instruments in their approaches to Africa’s rise. It specifically examines the extent to which Canada’s and China’s engagements respond to the region’s need for more equitable and sustainable forms of economic and social development and concludes with a set of recommendations regarding Canada’s financial and policy presence in Africa.
