China sees Africa trade evolving beyond mineral resources

10 June 2014 Last updated at 01:36 BST

One of the biggest trends in global economic and trade ties in recent years has been the growing relationship between China and Africa.

Trade between the two reached $210bn (£125bn) last year - up from just $10bn in 2000.

Africa's exports to China are increasing by 25% every year. In some African countries, those exports account for more than a quarter of their gross domestic product (GDP).

Murat Ulgen, chief economist at HSBC, told Asia Business Report that the relationship is evolving beyond one based on mineral resources.
