Beginning in the early 2000s, China has taken a strong initiative to become an integral partner in Africa’s development.
Infrastructure investments and increasing levels of diplomacy have brought Asia’s powerhouse closer to Africa with the intent to cut out Western influence altogether. One major development that has taken the continent by storm since 2012 is the East-West corridor from Kenya’s Lamu port to Cameroon’s Douala port, aptly named The Great Equatorial Land Bridge. The development of this initiative involves the construction of a transcontinental rail, road and oil transportation network which is to cut the time needed for the movement of goods from not only East to West Africa, but also from South and North America to Asia. This CAI paper discusses the challenges which China faces in the completion of this project in various states.

China completes sea trials for Nigerian OPV. China has completed sea trials of a 95 m offshore patrol vessel (OPV) on order for the Nigerian Navy (NN), a Chinese state-run media outlet reported on 29 October.
The vessel, with pennant number F 91, is the first of two P-18N OPVs acquired by the NN in March 2012 to bolster its maritime surveillance, patrolling, search-and-rescue (SAR), and counter-piracy capabilities. F 91 was launched by state-owned shipbuilder China Shipbuilding & Offshore International Co (CSOC) in January 2014, and was taken for sea trials by affiliated shipyard Wuchang Shipbuilding Industry.

According to specifications provided by CSOC, the P-18N has a full-load displacement of 1,800 tonnes and a top speed of approximately 21 kt.

Oil-rich Angola and Nigeria were first on the list, which makes sense as that’s where China has some of its biggest holdings. But he also stopped in Kenya and Ethiopia, countries not known for massive crude deposits, but appealing to China nonetheless as it switches investment focus from natural resources to manufacturing and services.
