内容摘要:Foreign direct investment (FDI) from developing countries in other developing countries has increased significantly recently. Such the South-South FDI tends to behave differently from the North-South FDI. The rise of China’s FDI (C-FDI) in Africa has generated considerable controversy. While the popular opinion in Africa about C-FDI is positive, the Western reaction often is highly negative. How does C-FDI affect Africa’s economies? Do C-FDI and the North-FDI have different impacts on African economies? This paper studies the issues by using the cross-country panel data in 2003-2018. We find that benefits from C-FDI to African economies are greater than those from the North FDI, and that the promoting effects of C-FDI concentrate on host-country’s exports and industrialization. Uniquely the large Chinese investment in Africa’s infrastructure not only contributes overall economic growth, but also enhance host-country’s absorptive capacity in attracting and utilizing foreign capital.
