Chinese Investment in Southern Africa's Cotton Sector

The China-Africa Research Initiative at the School for Advanced International Studies in Washington published in  February 2015 a policy brief titled "Assessing the Impact of Chinese Investment on Southeast Africa's Cotton: Moving up the Value Chain?" by Tang Xiaoyang, Tsinghua University. 

By analyzing the effects of Chinese investment on the cotton sector in southern Africa, the author identifies challenges and opportunities for the future of the textile industry in Africa.  While cheap textile imports from Asia have undermined manufacturing in southern Africa, investment from Asia may provide an opportunity for growth.
