Since the late twentieth century, China’s growing involvement in Africa has raised a lively debate on whether China’s African policy is beneficial to the economic development in the region. Most studies, nevertheless, focus on the macro-level capital flow and the state-to-state foreign relation between China and Africa while the area of interaction between individual Chinese and local communities is often neglected. Based on some preliminary findings, this presentation concerns with the features of overseas Chinese business marketing value and economic activities in Uganda during the past three decades, and some questions in relation to Chinese religious beliefs.
