Lessons from a Chinese Agro-technology Demonstration Center in Tanzania

The China Africa Research Initiative at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies published in April 2017 a study titled "Diffusing Chinese Rice Technology in Rural Tanzania: Lessons from the Dakawa Agro-technology Demonstration Center" by Hezron Makundi.

The study concluded that the demonstration center has struggled to balance the goal of technological diffusion with other interests such as the manifestation of China's soft power and its commercial goal of operating a financially self-sustaining farm.
