From The Official Blog of Amb. David H. Shinn Sat Dec 15 2012, 17:51:00

Standard Bank of South Africa announced on 3 December 2012 that total China-Africa trade may reach $200 billion in 2012, up from $166 billion in 2011. China now accounts for 20 percent of Africa's trade and Africa is China's fastest-growing export destination.

China also increased imports from Africa in 2012; most of the increase was oil from Angola. China's imports of African iron ore were flat while imports of copper, steel and aluminum fell sharply.
