Research

Demena's research focuses on exploring the extent and occurrence of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) productivity spillovers in Sub Saharan Africa. The mushrooming growth of the empirical studies have not achieved yet in separating the different channels under which the presence of foreign-owned firms influences the domestically-owned firms. Demana distinguishes technological spillovers from pecuniary spillovers through identifying particular transmission mechanisms underlying the technological spillovers that take in to account the nature of firm heterogeneity.  The research uses a Meta-analysis tool to integrate, summarize and synthesize the emprical conclusions and will provide a country specific case study.
