Abstract

China’s investment in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) region has boosted economic growth and infrastructure development, lowered commodity prices, raised employment and income levels, improved the quality of life locally, and made significant contributions to the region’s economic and infrastructure development. However, many politicians, scholars, and western media claim that China is just a looter of the country’s raw materials. Therefore, this paper takes the contribution role of China’s investment to examine the perspective of the host citizens’ views by using the survey, which matches 699 respondents, and let us investigate the role played by China’s investment in ECOWAS countries. Our finding is of great significance to objectively and fairly analyze China’s regional investment.
