China and India: Whats in it for Africa? Andrea Goldstein, Nicolas Pinaud, Helmut Reisen, and Michael-Xiaobao Chen Paris 16/17 March 2006 OECD
2 Why this project? In a context of rising commodity prices, Sub- Saharan Africa growth performance is improving What is the role of China and India? Anything new in terms of trade and investment linkages, as well as politics? Is there a risk of reversal of progress in production/export diversification? what about governance? Should policies be adapted?
3 Identifying conduits Super Cycle Raw Materials China / India Growth Africa's terms of trade + Declining prices of manufacturing goods & increased competition by Asian producers on local & third markets Africa's growth FDI in SSA Global interest rates SSA exports redirection twds the Asian Drivers Governance standards & debt sustainability issues ? ? ? ? + Direct demand
4 China and Indias contribution to global growth Source: Authors own calculation based on IMF World Economic Outlook Database, September 2005 N.B: GDP based on purchasing-power-parity (PPP) valuation of country GDP. Global growth rate & Chinas / Indias contribution
5 Sources of Chinas Income and Output Growth, Percentage points- Avg Employment Contribution Capital Contribution Residual Factors Sectoral change, Education, Multi factor productivity Thanks to capital accumulation (investment growth), potential growth in 2005 has reached 9.5 per cent. Unlikely to be sustained forever. One future source of growth will be domestic consumption. For raw materials, this may imply less demand for metals, more for soft commodities.

9 Africa: Back to the Raw Material Corner? The benefits of Asias rising global demand (net imports) for Africa-relevant commodities may be attenuated by the volatility of demand of the Asian giants. Mono-economies are volatile. Raw material dependence: less skill formation, more corruption, damaged environment?

28 Chinese and Indian FDI in Africa: the case of natural resources Sudan –CNPC owns 40% of the Greater Nile Petroleum Operating Company. –ONGC is building a 720km pipeline to the Red Sea, as well as a stadium. Nigeria –CNOOC acquired a 45% working interest in an offshore oil mining licence OML 130 for US$2.268b cash; CNPC invested in the Port Harcourt refinery; PetroChina is interested in the Kaduna refinery. –ONGC Mittal Energy Ltd (OMEL), the joint venture between Oil and Natural Gas Corporation and L. N. Mittal Group, will invest US$6b in railways, oil refining and power in exchange for oil drilling rights. Gabon –Sinopec and Unipec have a joint venture with Total. PanOcean exploits the Tsiengui on-shore basin and is associated with Shell to explore Awokou-1 –An Indian consortium signed an exploration and production sharing contract in November 2005.
29 Chinese and Indian FDI in Africa: the case of telecommunications ZTE, a Chinese vendor, runs a joint venture mobile operation in the Republic of Congo with the local operator and bought a 51 percent stake in Niger Telecommunications when the company was privatized. Distacom of Hong Kong became the strategic investor in Telecom Malagasy (Telma) in Madagascar, paying $12.6 million for a 68 percent stake and committing $165 million in additional investments over five years. In August 2005 Mahanagar Telephone Nigam (in which the Govt. of India currently holds a 56.25% stake) launched a wholly owned subsidiary in Mauritius, the first competitor to the state-owned incumbent

35 Summing up the evidence Positive impact on international commodity prices Positive impact on trade and FDI volume Diversification of geographical markets (although OECD and non-OECD business cycles are increasingly correlated) Limited changes in the African trade mix Risks –Leamer triangle? –Dutch disease? –Resource course?
36 Policy implications Reorient development strategies –Avoid competition in labor-intensive manufactures (e.g clothing) –Support diversification into sectors that are complementary to Asian growth (e.g. soft commodities and FFV) –Maximize the potential benefits of PTAs and geographical proximity The raw material boom calls for a policy mix that –restrains public consumption –leans against nominal appreciation (including through at least partial foreign investments of the surplus). Donor policies –Caution in emphasis on governance –Less bureaucracy and more practical action –Capacity-building in rural and agricultural areas –Despite PSD, government-to-government linkages remain crucial
