The South China Morning Post’s Inkstone team published a brief analysis today showcasing data from the China-Africa Research Initiative (CARI) at Johns Hopkins University. It provides a fresh reminder that the Chinese debt crisis in Africa is confined to a relatively small number of countries.
The data also reveals Angola’s outsized role in the Chinese debt issue, taking up just under a third of the total amount of Chinese loans on the continent.
