Description: Foreign direct investment (FDI) in Africa by developing Asian
economies is growing and has the potential to reach much higher
levels. The present report notes that Africa-bound FDI is still a
small percentage of the rapidly climbing foreign investments being
made by Asian transnational corporations. The rapid economic growth
in Asia can be expected to lead to increased Asian investments in
Africa, in both natural resources and manufacturing. In particular,
the rapid industrial upgrading taking place in Asia provides ample
opportunities for Africa to attract efficiency-seeking and
export-oriented FDI from Asian economies.
