Cet article analyse l'impact des relations commerciales entre la Chine et l'Afrique, tant au niveau r�gional que national, � travers un �chantillon de pays. Il confirme que ces relations commerciales donnent lieu tant � des gains qu'� des pertes. Au del� de cette constatation, l'article souligne que la structure existante des �changes entre l'Afrique et la Chine � renforc�e par l'envergure croissante de la place occup�e par la Chine � ne sert pas les objectifs de l'Afrique � plus long terme. Autrement dit, ces �changes ne contribuent pas � une diversification de la structure �conomique et commerciale de la r�gion, et n'assure donc pas l'objectif de d�veloppement industriel de pays africains. Cet article sugg�re que, dans beaucoup de cas, les effets n�gatifs des relations commerciales entre la Chine et l'Afrique peuvent �tre plus importants que les effets positifs. En cons�quence, des d�cisions politiques concert�es devraient �tre prises, d�cision qui soient bien adapt�es aux circonstances sp�cifiques de chaque pays. De fa�on g�n�rale, ces d�cisions consisteraient de mesures politiques visant le renforcement de l'acc�s des �conomies africaines au march� chinois ainsi que l'�limination des contraintes de capacit� de production.European Journal of Development Research (2009) 21, 485�505. doi:10.1057/ejdr.2009.28
