Chinese Agricultural Investment in Mozambique

The Johns Hopkins School for Advanced International Studies China-Africa Research Initiative published in November 2014 a policy brief titled "Chinese Agricultural Investment in Mozambique: The Case of the Wanbao Rice Farm" by Sergio Chichava, Institute of Social and Economic Studies in Mozambique. 

Critics see the project as a land grab while supporters argue that the investment is a positive force for agricultural growth and development.  The case demonstrates the many obstacles to successful agricultural investment in Mozambique, which are exacerbated by tension between local civil society organizations, the Mozambican government, and Chinese investors.
