The founding of the Forum on China Africa Co-operation (FOCAC) in 2000 marked the beginning of a thriving phase in China–Africa relations.

Today, China is Africa’s second largest trading partner, a second source of FDI and South Africa’s largest trading partner. In November 2009, the fourth FOCAC ministerial meeting is set to take place in Egypt.

SAIIA’s China in Africa programme has conducted research into various aspects of China–Africa relations. Relevant documents are available for download below.
