The Asian Drivers and SSA: Is There a Future for Export‐oriented African Industrialisation?

Raphael Kaplinsky and Mike Morris

The World Economy, 2009, vol. 32, issue 11, 1638-1655

Abstract: (1253) Raphael Kaplinsky and Mike Morris Export‐oriented industrialisation is the orthodoxy and is widely indicated as a development path for sub‐Saharan Africa. In recent years there has been a surge of clothing exports from a limited number of SSA economies to the US. In 2006 these exports accounted for more than half of SSA’s manufactured exports (excluding South Africa). However, the ending of quota controls on Chinese clothing exports to the US led to a significant fall in these exports. Is this a harbinger for the future of export‐oriented industrialisation in SSA in a world of a level trading playing field?
