The Chinese presence in the continent of Africa has been growing since the beginning of this millennium. With the launch of the Belt and Road Initiative, over 42 African countries signed MOUs in transport and industrial development sectors. The lack of infrastructure within the continent is still seen as an impediment to growth. However, the multiple investments made by China in these nations have encouraged progress and facilitated the inclusion of African countries within the global competition.
