Chinese Agricultural Engagement in Angola

The China Africa Research Initiative at the School of Advanced International Studies in Washington published in March 2015 a policy brief titled "Neither 'Friendship Farm' nor 'Land Grab': Chinese Agricultural Engagement in Angola" by Zhou Jinyan, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

The author traces the development of Chinese agricultural investment in Angola and assesses its current state.  After conducting research on the six Chinese-run farms she questions both the "land grab" narrative as well as the long-term sustainability of these projects.
