Through a series of simulations conducted using a CGE model of their national economy, a team of local researchers in Burkina Faso - selected for support under the PAGE initiative in 2013 - has found that the increasing presence and relations of China in/with Burkina Faso should have a generally positive impact on growth, employment and welfare in the country. However, these relations should be overseen by policy makers so as to ensure that Chinese investments will be directed in areas/sectors of production that are most likely to generate positive effects for the whole of Burkina's economy and population. Find out more about the research methods, findings (and related policy implications) through the following PEP publications (IN FRENCH):
