There has been an explosion of attention on China's interests and activities in Africa and on the wide spectrum of Chinese actors involved in countries across the continent, yet the terms and implications of the ChinaAngola partnership remain unclear. This book focuses on the increased cooperation between Angola and China; explores how relations with China have bolstered regime stability and boosted the international standing of the Angolan government; and investigates the extent to which collaboration serves their separate interests in the immediate and the longer term. It offers a rich look at the relations between the countries: examining some of the labor, infrastructure, and policy issues arising from Chinese involvement. From the perspectives of Angola's oil, construction, retail, and wholesale sectors, this discussion shows the need for better local control to tackle the shortcomings and foster the benefits of cultural, economic, and professional interchange.
