Evidence shows that African workers are more productive and benefit from higher wages in the presence of foreign and exporting firms. We observe that exposure to international markets and foreign competition brings a number of benefits to African producers like learning and adopting international best practices. Productivity may, however, vary with the degree of foreign ownership and exporting activities of African producers as well as the markets in which they supply their commodities.
