What do young educated Kazakhstani and Kirgiz think about the foreign direct investment from China.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

We asked about 300 people in business and government in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan about their attitudes towards the incoming foreign direct investment from China. The (anonymous) respondents are, overall, positive. The economic benefits seem to outweigh the (perceived) political and demographic threats. The respondents are cautious about the potential influx of Chinese laborers, environmental hazard and the Chinese management practices. In comparison to other countries, China is perceived as far from being an ideal investor, but still better than none. These findings suggest that if China addresses the raised concerns and is able to generate mutual economic benefit, it can successfully grow its economic presence in the region.
