Abstract
China and India are South Africa’s largest trade and investment partners in Asia. Successful cooperation within BRICS and implementation of multilateral initiatives contribute to stronger economic ties of the countries. In recent years, China has demonstrated strong African bias; India’s foreign economic policy also seems to be Africa-oriented. The paper gives detailed analysis of South Africa’s trade and investment cooperation with two “Asian giants” - China and India. The analysis is made from South Africa’s strategic interests, its interest in diversification of production and exports and more efficient integration into global value chains. The author reveals key trends and priorities of China and India in South Africa, and assesses mutual benefits of closer economic cooperation.
