Abstract: Sustainability of growth in Africa depends in part on the extent to which it can exploit opportunities available from trade. Trade barriers exist to key African exports which make it difficult for the continent to take advantage of the opportunity that abounds in trade. This study evaluates the impact of trade restrictions in China on African exports. We found that trade restrictions in China hinder import from Africa while the non-tariff restrictions are more significant than any other restrictions.
