The General Administration of Customs released the China Africa Trade Index, which increased from 100 points in 2000 to 990.55 points in 2022, with China's total import and export value to Africa soaring from less than 100 billion yuan to 1.88 trillion yuan, a 20-fold increase. China has been Africa's largest trading partner for 14 consecutive years, showcasing the potential for further trade development. China's involvement in Africa, particularly through the Belt and Road Initiative, contributes to economic vitality and resilience, supports independent diplomacy, enhances Africa's international influence, and aids infrastructure development, in contrast to Western assistance efforts viewed as superficial and self-serving.
