If Euromoney Awards for Excellence were handed out merely for size and influence, the award for best bank in Africa, like many things African, could be heading to China this year. It is impossible to ignore the impact of China’s Export-Import Bank on the continent. It has approved some $7 billion-worth of loans in the past three years, according to the Centre for Global Development, a Washington think-tank, and with no difficult strings attached such as concerns for human rights or good governance. China is fast becoming Africa’s most enthusiastic investor, pouring more than $20 billion into the continent and snapping up more than 10% of sub-Saharan Africa’s exports ($19.2 billion) in 2005, the last year for which figures are available.
