MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper investigates the relationship between Chinese foreign direct investment and industrialization for 41 African countries over the period 2003-2015. Based on System Generalized Method of Moments (GMM), empirical findings show that Chinese foreign direct investment did not significantly influence the industrialization process in African countries.
