Mohan, Dr Giles. . "The invisible hand of South-South globalisation: Chinese migrants in Africa." 26.
Temporal and geographical dynamics of Chinese migration are linked to global expansion and geopolitics so that motives for emigrating vary over time. Chinese entrepreneurialism is a product of networks not an innate cultural characteristic. Migrants tended to come from Southern China, but this pattern is breaking down as internal migration in China is freed up. Main migration has been to South Africa, Mauritius and Madagascar, but patterns follow economic opportunity and so there has been a diversification of destination countries.
