THE DRAGON EMBRACES AFRICA: CAPE VERDE-CHINA RELATIONS

João Paulo Madeira

Abstract


This article analyses the main issues raised by the cooperation between China and
Africa. Particularly, it focuses on the guidelines of the Cape Verde-China relationship
that is in itself a durable and multidimensional one. To achieve these objectives, it is
necessary to adopt an interdisciplinary methodology, prioritizing the cross-reference
data obtained from bibliographical and documentary research, allowing a critical reflection.
Although Cape Verde enjoys political stability, which is complemented by
a climate of legal and institutional security, it is believed that China’s interest in the
archipelago is mainly economic and commercial, as it serves as a logistics platform
in the African region.
