Abstract [en]

This thesis examines the diplomatic and commercial relationship between China

and Ethiopia starting from the new millennium. In contrast to the predominant

model in literature - which explains the Chinese interest in the African context as

strictly motivated by the search of resources - the objective of this paper is to

represent the importance of geopolitics and of the market in the Sino-Ethiopian

relationship. So, after examining the recent history of the diplomatic relationship

and after investigating the strong economic ties between the two countries

(imports, exports, development aid and FDI), the thesis focuses on the OBOR project

(One Belt, One Road) in the African continent and on the growing role that Ethiopia

is playing in it. Ethiopia, starting from the early 2000s, has been able to start a

rapid growth and this period of development has been closely linked to the

intensification of the relationship with China. This thesis aims to shed light on the

contribution that this strong link has brought to both countries and on some of the

dynamics that it has configured - and that is about to embody- within the Sino-

African context. To what extent is it possible to say that China has had a decisive

impact on Ethiopia's recent growth?
