How Do Chinese Contractors Perform in Africa?

The SAIS China-Africa Research Initiative published in February 2016 a working paper titled "How Do Chinese Contractors Perform in Africa? Evidence from World Bank Projects" by Jamie Farrell.

The paper concludes that Chinese firms performed similarly to OECD country firms on projects completed between 2000 and 2013; there was no statistically significant difference between their quality of work. The paper also looks at possible underlying factors behind the negative perceptions of Chinese construction work.
