Research title: ‘Africa-China Forward-Looking Socioeconomic Ties through the Belt and Road Initiative: Scrutinizing the Outlooks of Ethiopia, Kenya and South Africa’

The principal objective of this study is to assess the Belt and Road Initiative (RBI) in view of its contribution to infrastructure development, resource and policy integration, promotion of trade, and social cohesion between Africa and China with specific attention to Ethiopia, Kenya and South Africa. It may also assess to what extent the BRI strategy is understood among African elites, review how the existing African strategies are compatible with BRI targets, identify key challenges to implement the strategy, and recommend possible policy directives for the sustainable realization of BRI in Africa.

To meet the intended objectives, national policies/strategies, regulations, researches, project documents and reports will be carried out intensively to capture the goals, trends, progresses and challenges of the BRI.  Likewise, data will be collected from various elites, political leaders, community-based organizations and non-governmental organizations operating in the three countries. Contact with Chinese experts and scholars in Africa and/or China that have adequate stake/knowledge on the issues of BRI will also provide relevant information for the study.

The research finding will be presented at Seminars, Conferences, forums and Policy Roundtable Discussions (PRTs) both in Africa and China. It will be prepared in the form of a research article and will be submitted to journals for publication. The ultimate goal of the research is to enhance the understanding of the goal of BRI in Ethiopia so as to help both parties for enhanced cooperation for sustainable socioeconomic development through improved investment, trade and technology transfer. Finally, the paper will be published in reputable journals to be accessed by the academia, policy makers and other key stakeholders.
