Rwanda-China economic ties
China’s President Xi Jinping inked 15 deals including loans and grants worth millions of dollars with Rwanda on Monday as part of a whistlestop tour to cement relations with African allies.
As part of his first overseas trip since being re-elected in March, Xi last week visited Senegal to conclude a raft of trade accords.
He was also in South Africa for a summit of the BRICS emerging economies. China has already provided vast sums to the continent with Beijing’s financial largess raising fears that poor nations are unprepared for such massive debts.
