Report launch

China’s increasing engagement in Africa has sometimes drawn criticism, but how do ordinary Africans see it?

Afrobarometer will launch a new report on World Development Information Day, October 24th, focusing on China's involvement in Africa.

This is the 14th of Afrobarometer’s global releases of new findings from its Round 6 surveys (2014/2015) of almost 54,000 citizens in 36 African countries. The first 13 (available at, focused on citizens’ top policy and investment priorities, infrastructure development, lived poverty, tolerance, electricity, water/sanitation, health, the news media, regional integration, political and civic engagement of African youth, trustworthy institutions, election management, and job performance of MPs and local government councillors.
