About this book

Highlighting an important emerging trend in FDI to Africa, this book consists of important contributions focusing on an increase in trade and investment between African countries. An area that until now has received little attention, this volume aims to define the key issues and explores the challenges and outcomes that have characterized Africa-to-Africa internationalization, providing guidance on directions for future research. Africa-to-Africa Internationalization includes both conceptual and empirical contributions, illustrating the practical issues in intra-African trade and investment. Providing readers with a deep sense of the realities and challenges of cross-border investments within the region, the cases included in the book are useful pedagogical materials for faculty members interested in teaching international business in the African context.

Reviews

“The book provides a comprehensive overview of the nature, drivers, dimensions and diversity of intra-African FDI. … the book makes a valuable contribution to the literature. It will be an important resource for students and scholars interested in business development in Africa, and it provides a substantial, comprehensive and engaging overview of the nature and importance of intra-continental FDI.” (Pádraig Carmody, South African Journal of International Affairs, Vol. 42 (2), June, 2017)
