Chinese Investment In African Oil

Africa is now China’s second largest source of oil, surpassed only by the Middle East. This week we will look at how growing Chinese demand for energy is affecting African economies. Is Chinese energy investment helping to spur inclusive economic growth, or just enriching corrupt local elites? And what roll will Africa play as China seeks to further diversify its energy supplies?  This podcast features Shun Ling Yap, an analyst with Business Monitor’s Oil & Gas team, and Geraint Tudor Jones, a member of our Sub-Saharan Africa team.
