60th Anniversary Alumni Lecture Series

Chinese multinational corporations (MNCs) in Africa have often invited criticism for hiring Chinese expatriates at the expense of native workers. Do Chinese firms increase the number of Chinese expatriate workers, and if so, do they rely more heavily on expatriate workers than do MNCs from other sources?
