最後，肯亞的出口對中國市場並未形成依賴。肯亞出口國家以非洲地區為主，其次為歐洲，再來才是亞洲地區。中國與肯亞的經濟往來似乎不符合新殖民主義之特徵，肯亞的進出口貿易對中國經濟並未形成依賴，而中國也並未透過國際市場和價格形成壟斷，讓肯亞對其經濟依賴。在未來發展助力上，中肯官方關係良好，都有意深化雙方經貿關係；另外，歐債危機讓依賴歐盟市場的肯亞可能選擇將風險分散，拓展亞洲市場和出口機會，提高國家面對國際經濟情勢的應變能力。中國經濟成長趨緩以及東非區域仍舊不穩定則可能會讓中國與肯亞的交往受到負面影響。未來中肯雙方在加強非傳統合作及區域反恐可能會有更多作為。 China’s various types of aids to Africa have been increasing in trade of Africa’s abundant resources since the establishment of the Forum On China-Africa Cooperation in 2000. The concern from some western countries has made the Sino-African relations more popular in the field of international relations. For a decade the Sino-African relations is studied in a sense of oil strategy, which does play a role. Somehow, to obtain energy is not the only one but of one of the aspects of Beijing’s diplomacy toward Africa. The overemphasis on Beijing’s thirst for oil will overlook other aspects of Beijing’s African diplomacy that could misjudge China’s development as a whole picture.
China’s economic needs are complementary to Kenya’s. China’s exports to Kenya are mainly agricultural machinery, medicine, and living goods; Kenya exports materials such as tea, coffee and mineral resources. Since Kenya is not an oil-produced country, criticism on China’s engagement with Africa bears energy cause cannot be fully applied to Sino-Kenyan economic relations. From the perspective of influence, China has established its culture, publication and media headquarters in Nairobi. It might be an overstatement that China has the intention to make Kenya the center of Chinese media and culture in Africa, but to say that Nairobi is the hub of Chinese media and culture in Africa should be appropriate.
Kenya’s export does not rely on the Chinese market. Africa takes the first destination of Kenya’s export, Europe the second, and Asia the third. The economic relations between China and Kenya do not go with the features of neo-colonialism. Kenya’s economy does not depend on China’s; also, China didn’t manipulate the international market and price to corner Kenya’s economy. There are several advantages for the development of Sino-Kenyan relations. The two governments are in a benign relationship and intend to deepen economic cooperation. Besides, the debt crisis in the Eurozone worried Kenya that it has decided to develop Asian market and seek opportunities to export to Asia, hoping to strengthen its capabilities when facing the uncertain international economic conditions. However, the slowdown of China’s economic growth and the uncertainty of the East Africa might become obstacles in Sino-Kenyan relations. In the future the two governments might seek more cooperation in the fields of anti-terrorism and climate change.
