China and India have taken multifaceted measures to engage Africa since the end of the Cold War, especially in the twenty-first century, including political, economic, military, and cultural measures, as well as China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and India’s Asia-Africa Growth Corridor (AAGC). The motivations behind China and India’s engagement with Africa include China’s political interest in seeking Africa’s support of the one-China policy and of India’s quest for a permanent membership in the UN Security Council; China and India’s economic interest in seeking Africa’s rich natural resources, especially oil, to fuel their economic growth, in addition to Africa’s markets for their investments and exports; China and India’s interest in enhancing their great power status through enhanced influence in Africa. China and India’s engagement with Africa have some positive implications for Africa’s economic growth, peace and stability, and global profile.
