Abstract:

This supplement presents the results of our case studies of U.S. and Chinese economic engagement in three sub-Saharan African countries--Angola, Ghana, and Kenya. GAO conducted these case studies to compare the United States' and China's trade, grants and loans, and investment activities in sub-Saharan Africa. GAO selected the three countries on the basis of an assessment of the levels, types, and intersection of the United States' and China's engagement in trade, grants and loans, and investment activity in each country; the three countries' geographic diversity; and input from U.S. government officials and relevant experts. The case studies are meant to be illustrative and are not generalizable. GAO conducted work in Washington, D.C., and in Angola, Ghana, and Kenya, including meetings with officials from U.S. agencies, host-government ministries, U.S. businesses, other donors, and nongovernmental organizations (NGO). GAO was unable to meet with Chinese government officials, despite requests, in Africa or Washington, D.C. GAO has noted data limitations as appropriate, such as lack of available data on China's grants and loans and likely underreporting of its investment data. Overall, GAO determined that the data presented in these case studies are generally reliable for the purposes for which the data are used.
