The research project of the experts of the Graduate School of Management at St. Petersburg University (GSOM SPbU) — Professor Andrei Panibratov and Doctoral student Abdul-Kadir Ameyaw — has received the Best Paper Award.
The paper Foreign Direct Investment in Africa: a retrospective and agenda for future research was presented at the 16th Vaasa Conference on International Business in Finland in August 2021.
“Despite the increasing activity of the research on foreign direct investments (FDI) in international business, the literature on FDI in Africa is scant and suffers from disintegration, theoretical boundaries, and empirical vagueness, leaving important countenances uninvestigated. The purpose of this article is to reveal how much work has been done, what knowledge has been obtained, and what directions need to be taken for future FDI in Africa research”,
