This Research in Context brief sets in context and summarises findings from the DEGRP project ‘Industrial Development, Construction and Employment in Africa’ (IDCEA). The project examined the employment and labour market effects of Chinese and non-Chinese firms investing in manufacturing and building infrastructure in Angola and Ethiopia.

The research was led by Carlos Oya of SOAS University of London (UK) in collaboration with Renmin University (Beijing, China), Universidade Agostinho Neto and JMJ Angola (Luanda, Angola), the Ethiopian Economic Policy Research Institute of the Ethiopian Economics Association and the Forum for Social Studies (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia).
