DEGRP China-Africa project Chinese national oil companies and the economic development of African oil producers has released a set of short video clips about their research, available as a playlist on YouTube.
Featuring interviews with researchers and members of the project's international advisory network, the videos set the scene for the project's research on the interaction between China’s oil interests and African state and non-state actors in Ghana, Angola and Sudan.
The clips include commentary on:
- Key players in Africa's oil sector;
- main drivers of Chinese presence in the sector;
- the potential development impact of Chinese engagement;
- governance issues; and
- the links between the oil sector and development finance.
