Africa needs a strategy for ‘emerging partners’

The global development landscape is changing rapidly with the growing role of China, Brazil and other “emerging” economies. In this new context, African countries have seen a significant increase in trade, foreign direct investment and official development assistance from the South. While China is the most significant partner, interactions are also increasing with India, Brazil, Malaysia, Turkey and several other countries, reducing Africa’s dependence on its traditional partners and opening new policy space for African governments.
