Refining Relations: Chad's Growing Links with China
This paper examines several aspects of Chad's relationship with China. This relationship has developed significantly in a relatively short space of time, which has elevated China’s importance in the Chadian economy and domestic politics. The core of the Chinese engagement is driven by the China National Petroleum Corporation's "Rônier" project. In spite of Chad's challenging business environment, relations look set to deepen as efforts are made to pursue an ambitious set of infrastructure and other ventures.
