  • Abstract China in the recent years has become an important partner to African countries. Five Chinese funded special economic zones have been established within the continent. This research gives an overview of the use of Special Economic Zones to aid development and Africa‚Äôs experience with zones. Because zone development is a long term process that aim of the research was to determine the possibility of the zones to aid in structural transformation of the host countries. The analysis was focused on the Ethiopian and Zambian Chinese funded zones. This thesis contends that although zone in Ethiopia has static benefits there is indication of likelihood of the zones producing dynamic benefits. While the Zambia China Corporation Zone in Zambia has received significant foreign direct investment and created jobs. The likelihood of the producing dynamic benefits will be most likely curtailed by the country poor policy implementation.
