Chinese Investment in Ethiopia

 The Conversation published on 21 February 2023 an analysis titled "China and Africa: Ethiopia Case Study Debunks Investment Myths" by Weiwei Chen, University of London.  

The author did research in Ethiopia between 2008 and 2018 comparing the light manufacturing industry and the construction material industry.  She argues that far from constituting a homogeneous and static group, Chinese private investments are highly diverse, fluid, and complex.  Motives and determinants of these firms to invest in Ethiopia differ significantly.
