CAIRO BOOKS's Description
In recent years, a number of emerging economies have begun to play a growing
role in the finance of infrastructure in Sub-Saharan Africa. Their combined
resource flows are now comparable in scale to traditional Official Development
Assistance (ODA) from Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development
(OECD) countries or to capital from private investors. These emerging
financiers include China, India, and the Gulf States, with China being by far
the largest player. Despite its importance, relatively little is known about
the value of Chinese finance. 'Building Bridges' quantifies the magnitude of
financial flows from China by collating public information from a wide range of
Chinese language sources. On this basis, it becomes possible to document the
geographic distribution of resources, the types of infrastructures involved,
the size and financing terms of the projects, and the modalities through which
finance is being provided.
