The combined economies of China, Taiwan and Hong Kong amount to US$1,437 trillion making 'Greater China' the fourth largest economy in the world.

What are the implications for South Africa and Africa of the continued expansion of the Chinese economy? Will the growth of ‘Greater China’ crowd Africa out of an increasingly competitive foreign direct investment market? Will it prove to be a competitor to African industries or will these challenges be compensated by the market opportunities on offer in China?
