African Exports to USA/China





indeedwrestling
I was looking at the CIA Factbook recently and thinking about the rising influence of China on Africa's economy - particularly in the amount of goods that the Chinese are buying from African Nations. In particular, raw materials are being scooped up at record rates as Chinese companies such as telecomms are moving in and making deals with the governments. I wonder whether this will lead to further investment in the African continent or rather it's just a new form of imperialism and globalism?

China and USA are major trade partners for many African countries.

The top five countries which export major amounts of goods to China (by export amount) are:
1. Angola ($7.9b)
2. Sudan ($5.0b)
3. South Africa ($2.8b)
4. Equatorial Guinea ($1.6b)
5. Congo (Brazzaville) ($0.9b)
Total amount being directly exported to China: ~$20b.

Most dependent on Chinese trade: Sudan (71%), Congo (Brazzaville, 39.1%), Burkina Faso (37.2%), Lesotho (35.4%), Benin (31.3%)

1. Nigeria ($25.9b)
2. Angola ($10.7b)
3. Algeria ($5.2b)
4. South Africa ($4.8b)
5. Gabon ($3.1b)

Total amount being directly exported to China: ~$61b.

Most dependent on American trade: Chad (78%), Gabon (53.7%), Nigeria (49.7%), Angola (39.8%), Madagascar (30.5%).
