The global economy and polity is now entering a period of disruptive change and punctuated equilibrium. This Report summarises the interaction of Africa with emerging economies on three vectors of integration – Aid, Trade and FDI within this disruptive period. Individual profiles for China, India, Brazil, Korea, Malaysia, Russia and Turkey document the changing importance of Africa for these emerging economies. The emerging economies in general, and China in particular, exercise a much closer strategic integration of aid, trade and FDI. This position is fairly distinct from the emerging pattern of best-practice aid, trade and FDI from the OECD economies.
