What are the impacts of Chinese investment in Africa? Is it transforming economic development on the continent? This book is different from many other studies of this issue, as it unpacks the ‘black box’ of technological and learning spillover effects from Chinese firms to others.

Only by understanding the reasons behind this rarity can approaches be developed to promote spillovers.
