Chinese Communist Party Diplomacy and Orientations to Political Parties in African Countries

Issa Kansaye


The new policy of the Chinese Communist Party's diplomacy has made the highest representatives of 48 African nations (The new policy of the Chinese Communist Party's diplomacy has made its highest representation in 48 African nations). This confirms its friendship with African countries. Currently, the priorities of Beijing are to seek above all to acquire investment in Africa despite the impression of novelty that characterizes the sending of Chinese diplomacy in Africa.  It is a dynamic framework of continuity of an African policy of China. Indonesia’s Bandung conference was offered to China from April 18th to 24th, 1955 as a platform to weave and reestablish relations with Africa. It was from Bandung that China’s dream to support African countries in the struggle against imperialist colonial rule allowed reinforcement of its nascent diplomacy. State visits signal the renewal of the Communist Party’s diplomacy.  On the other hand, the support of the Chinese Communist Party to the liberation movement in Africa marks a momentum in its diplomacy. This major role played by Beijing helps to sit the idea from a resolutely anti-colonialist and militant third way ideological legacy. However, this new policy is not devoid of ambiguities or continuity with the traditional goals of Chinese people in the world, two of which must be recalled; the maintenance of the political regime and the attainment of a status of great power capable of raising China, at least diplomatically, to the same rank as the United States, and therefore above the other major nations.
