Abstract: The study considers the appropriateness of interventions by China in sub-Saharan Africa, and specifically in Mali. The largest Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) to Mali are from France, Germany and China, in particular the manufacturing sector and food industries. Many projects being implemented by China in public infrastructure are not taken into account in FDI statistics. China seeks in Mali as in most African countries where it trades, to reabsorb its own unemployed labour, in some Chinese provinces reaching 20%. Because China is not a member of the Development Assistance Committee of OECD, it does not publish the amount or conditions of its aid.
