Investissements en Afrique : La Chine et les « partenaires traditionnels »

Abstract : At the root of this working paper is the diatribe I received from an angry reader who felt that, in one of my articles, I had attempted to downplay the importance of Chinese investment in Africa in order to better and unduly value the role of former colonial powers or - to use a politically watered-down term - "traditional partners". I do not think that I have ever introduced such a bias in my analyses, especially since in this case there was no reference to these "traditional partners". On the other hand, this mercurial had suggested that I should take an interest in this question, so I made a first attempt in July 2018 to gather the available elements, in particular, I analysed the most recently calculated data available on the Eurostat (the European Union's statistical office) website, which I published on my website under the title Investment in Africa: China vs "traditional partners". As Eurostat has recently (17 June 2019) updated its online database, I took the opportunity to review my approach and go further.
