Regional Development in a Multipolar World: Explaining the impact of US-China nexus on African export performance

Abdelrasaq Nal
  • There is a growing interest in the influence of growth poles on development in other regions
  • The phenomenon itself does not represent anything new
  • Since the advent of interactions among nations there have been development consequences for participants
  • For much of recent history, these developments were driven by the trio of Europe, US and Japan
  • Current resurgence of interests is principally inspired by the emergence of non-traditional actors like Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (so called BRICS) in the driving seats.
  • However, much of the extant works adopts a bi-polar framework
  • Analysis of a multipolar kind is relatively unpopular
