Abstract:Although a number of studies have explored China-Africa relations, they have mostly focused on traditional measures of trade similarity and compared the exporting pattern of African countries with that of China. It is important to bear in mind that Africa is a diverse continent and the impact of China on African economies is diverse and is dependent on the sectoral composition of each country's production. This article considers China's engagement with the Democratic Republic of Congo focusing mainly on imports, exports and investments in the mining and infrastructure sectors. Bibliogr., notes, ref.
