Chinese Company Skill Transfer Programs in Kenya

The Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies China-Africa Research Initiative published in September 2017 a paper titled "Creating a Market for Skills Transfer: A Case Study of AVIC International's Skills Transfer Programs in Kenya" by Irene Yuan Sun and Qi Lin.

This is an in-depth study of a set of AVIC International's local workforce development programs in Kenya. AVIC International is a Chinese state-owned conglomerate. The study, albeit confined to one company, challenges the stereotype that Chinese firms in Africa care little about local development.
