Abstract:China's rapid growth and deepening global presence in Africa creates a major challenge for the conventional wisdom of industrialization as a core component of development strategy. These challenges are expressed through a combination of direct impacts (expressed in bilateral country-to-country relations) and indirect impacts (reflected in competition in third country markets). In current structures, these impacts are predominantly harmful for Sub-Saharan Africa's industrial growth, as expressed through its recent experience in the exports of clothing to the US under AGOA (African Growth & Opportunity Act). If Washington Consensus policies prevail, these harmful impacts will be sustained and deepened. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
