SADC industrialisation and agricultural mechanisation: Prospects Opportunities and Challenges for China-SADC Cooperation

by Joseph Ngwawi
This paper looks at the importance of agricultural mechanisation in advancing the industrialization agenda in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and how the region could benefit from the Chinese experience in this area. It argues that the SADC region could leverage its massive agricultural potential and the blossoming relationship with China to derive long-lasting economic benefits from Beijing’s expertise in agricultural mechanisation and industrialisation.
