Abstract

This chapter discusses the value of China as a source of models of development relevant to Africa. In addition to benefits of direct investment and trade engagement between China and key African economies, China's own appraoch to the problems of rapid growth and development should be of interest. Despite obvious and significant differences, the Chinese pattern of modernization and the problems it has uncovered offer lessons of potential value to African decision makers.
