The Asian Drivers and Sub-Saharan Africa

Published on 1 January 2006

In recent years, the two largest countries in Asia, China and India have become increasingly important players in the global economy.

Their rapid growth and increased openness since 1990 has led to concerns in both developed and developing countries, but up to now relatively little attention has been paid to their impact on the countries of sub-Saharan Africa, despite the fact
that trade between the Asian Drivers and Africa has grown significantly since 1990 and that in the last few years, China and India have also emerged as source.
