Yu Zheng (Fudan University), Gedion Jalata (Forum for Social Studies in Addis Ababa), Nicolas Lippolis (Oxford University), Lovise Aalen (CMI). Ethiopia, the second most populous country in Africa, has seen substantial industrial growth during the last decade. International investors have relocated their industries to numerous industrial parks around Ethiopia, and thousands of jobs have been created. China provides significant development finance and direct investment in these industrial parks.
In this seminar, we will discuss the China’s role in industrial development in Ethiopia. Is the aim to take advantage of lower labour and production costs and to get access to domestic markets in Africa? Does it reflect a broader desire to promote the Chinese model of industrialisation? And likewise: What are the Ethiopian objectives behind collaboration with China in this area? Is it a way of attracting foreign investment? Are there wider political and developmental considerations behind? And what are impacts of the Chinese-Ethiopian collaboration – on industrial growth, job creation and technology transfer? And how is the collaboration affected by the current conflicts and upheavals in Ethiopia? In the beginning of this seminar, Elling Tjønneland will introduce the new seminar serie "China´s role in Africa: What now?". Further, Lovise Aalen will lead the panel discussion between Yu Zheng, Gedion Jalata and Nicolas Lippolis.
