China-Africa engagement: Has it peaked?


BEIJING, China, December 10, 2013 (TIA) -- The key factors driving China’s Africa play are starting to wane.

An Export-Import Bank of China executive, addressing an audience of investors in Hong Kong recently, made a prediction that total investments and loans from China to Africa would reach $1trn in the next 12 years.
