Angolan infrastructure in a regional perspective
This project is not planned in detail and will be developed further during the first year. The background for the project is twofold:
a) That the phenomenal growth of the economy of Angola and the extensive building of infrastructure will have an effect on the region and the whole geopolitical and economic situation in Southern Africa and
b) that the role of foreign investment will be considerable, in particular the influence of the Chinese focus on transport and other infrastructure
The problem: The project will focus on two distinct and vaguely related problems. What will be the effect of the major infrastructure projects on Angola's role in the region, its alignment with northern and southern states, and what will be the effect on the poor?
Objective(s): To keep CEIC and other relevant Angolan institutions updated with information on the major actual and contemplated moves in the area of infrastructure.
