The study used a neoclassical growth of Solow-type growth model and panel data analysis from the period of 2003 to 2018 on 43 SSA countries for the investment. Two panel regressions were estimated using time and country fixed effects through the fixed effect study result showed that the Chinese investment in the perspective of BRI has positive and statically significant effect on the economic growth and business environment of Sub-Saharan African countries. Which the Chinese investment studied in SSA countries is not a threat and normalized the negative attitude of some western researchers about Sino-Africa. China should have to revise the policy of investment in all countries in the region. Before Chinese FDI flow to the region it should have to study the environment for investment, business, policy and need of the countries. Chinese FDI should have assurance new knowledge, capital and infrastructure in the SSA countries to develop their business policy towards BRI. Besides, there is luck of full data and information of the Chinese FDI to SSA which has a limits research and complete analysis to help policy making with difficult measuring because of all each country has different resources, political systems and histories which has a lack of a uniform and clear model does not all variables might exact influence to the economic growth.

Abstract

­

Quick Response (QR) code utilization has exploded in China to a higher extent compared to other Western countries. QR codes have become part and parcel of the digital world and the online shopping environment in China. This study adopted the Theory of Diffusion of Innovations (DOI) as the theoretical framework of this study, to investigate the perceptions of how African students use QR codes for online shopping within China. The study utilized an online questionnaire design to collect data from 615 African students from 9 countries studying in 10 purposively sampled Chinese universities. One key finding of our study shows that the type of QR code mostly used among African students is the product information types and their reason for opting for the product information QR code type is mainly for searching for the right product before they do online shopping or buy. Our study also reported that despite some challenges identified by respondents, which include: the acquisition of a smartphone and the need to download an app, there a general level of acceptance of QR codes among African students in China. In conclusion, 55.9% of the sampled African students for this studying in China specified they were ready to recommend QR code usage in their respective African countries for online shopping.

The findings indicate that consumers’ marketing communications significantly positive influence on the consumers’ loyalty. However, the language differences weaken the positive relationship consumers’ marketing communications and consumers’ loyalty. This paper has important implications for theory and practice. In addition, the context of a non-individualistic culture, that is, Chinese context has significant implication for others collectivists cultures.

Relationship between Chinese firms’ Internationalization and Environmental performance: An empirical evidence Sibele Recco Rosso Comim

Relationship between Chinese firms’ Internationalization and Environmental performance: An empirical evidence

Author (s)

Sibele Recco Rosso Comim

Abstract

This research aims to empirically investigate the environmental performance of Chinese multinationals using various proxies of internationalization. This research among the first to empirically test the impact of multiple proxies of internationalization in a single manuscript. This research has also employed the largest panel data-set of 15362 firm-year observations to test the association empirically. The findings of the research reveal that the widely used proxy of internationalization (Intensity_1, which is total exports to total revenue) does not find significant support. On the other hand, Intensity_2 (foreign assets to total assets), Breadth_1, and Breadth_2 (measured as the number of foreign subsidiaries) find significant support. These findings are robust when we employed the GMM regression model.
