Instead the China-Africa trade has brought some impact on Africa’s market traders and also contributed to poverty. Mercantilism is failing Africa, particularly the SSA. Most of African states are still poor and majority of their citizens still lives in poverty.

Another things that made African states not to benefit most in the trade is that, they export raw material or minerals because they lack means to process those raw material into finished goods and services.
This effected a great amount of people because Europeans controlled Africans, and the Africans had to neglect all their traditionals ways, social structures, and beliefs. In order to fully acquire the Europeans needs and wants, Africa had to lose their right “to control their own destiny, to plan their own development, manage their economy, determine their own strategies and priorities” (Boahen). This is historically significant because not having control of their own continent made them a weak nation. The concept of survival of the fittest correlates with this because survival of the fittest is when the most wealthiest and dominant country will be able to survive in the world. A weak and powerless continent like Africa would not be able to survive due to their vulnerability because superior countries will take advantage of them.
Africa was filled with such incredible natural resources such as; copper, ivory, and rubber, the europeans countries competed among themselves to control the colonies. The natives lost control of land and independence, the Africans were used as slaves, the interest in the waterways to Asia also pulled them towards Africa.

This sector of population in the country mostly consists of unskilled labour so most take up blue-collar jobs, serve as domestic help and other easily replaceable jobs like bus conductors, auto-rickshaw drivers, clerks etc. These jobs provide neither sufficient income nor livelihood security. Unlike the rural poor, the urban poor do not have the advantage of depending on agriculture for sustenance.
According to Rural Poverty Portal (2009) poverty in Bhutan is caused mainly due to nature of the topography. Bhutan has rugged terrain with only 2.93% arable land. The rugged terrain also limits the accessibility of inhabitants to social and health services and marketing and educational facilities adding to higher rate of poverty. Populations are growing rapidly in rural areas but resources and opportunities are limited.
