Trade vs. Aid – FDI in Africa

Yesterday I made a visit to the Afrika Studie Centrum in Leiden, the Netherlands.

I was surprised to find a folder with this map. It really brings a number of things into perspective.

Outside of Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt and South Africa, its clear most FDI is made in energy rich countries.

Many of the countries without these resources are still very much fighting a balance between aid and trade.

I was also surprised to see that aid is still a greater contributor than FDI in a country like Nigeria.

This map clearly shows the amount of work that still needs to be done.

I would invite any other maps or graphs that further tell the story.
