China's growing and expanding economic engagement in Africa the last century, has captured the attention of International Relations, in media and research as well as in Europe and Africa, but also worldwide. In particular, much attention was brought together with the Forum on China – Africa Cooperation held in Beijing 2006 (FOCAC III), when China declared the year as The Year of Africa and presented the white paper named China's African Policy. Their deepening involvement in Africa is realized through a mix of aid, debt relief, scholarships, educational and medical training, infrastructural investment projects as well as Foreign Direct Investments.
China’s substantial involvement in particular oil sector, together with their non - interference and no – stringed - attached policy has given rise to suspicions of China’s real aim in this renewal cooperation with Africa.
This paper studies the literature on China's investment, particularly China's FDI in Sub – Saharan Africa (SSA). The conclusion of the analysis is that the view on China-African relationship in the economic literature may be divided into three different perspectives: exploitation, development / "win-win" situation, and neo - colonialism.
