Abstract [en]

Within the growth accounting framework, this paper empirically examines the relationship between Chinese Foreign Direct Investment and economic growth in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) by using a panel dataset of 30 SSA countries from 2003 to 2011. Unlike previous papers I am using both macroeconomic and policy variables in the empirical equation which is argued to reduce the risk of bias. The findings of the paper are consistent with previous work showing positive, but no significant impact of Chinese FDI on growth in SSA. The paper therefore strengthens the findings of previous work, arguing that Chinese FDI has a very limited impact on growth in SSA.
