The Africa-China Connection: A Thriving Business Partnership (Enhanced DVD)
The influx of Chinese foreign direct investment (FDI) in African markets, has opened the door for a new era in development economics in the region. China’s targeted investment in both public and private sector projects in the past decade, has transformed global trade relations. The result is increased integration of international environmental and other regulatory rules as part of national trade policies.
Hosted by Political scientist Achille Mbembe, the video looks at the history of China’s relationship with Africa, and the emerging shape of political-economy across the continent. Insights from the World Bank show how changes in the labor market promote economic dynamism in Africa and elsewhere.
