Abstract: This study investigates the role of Chinese construction firms (hereinafter refer to simply as Chinese firms) in the Nigerian construction industry. The primary research methodology is based on extensive reviews of the relevant literature. The study highlights the impacts of Nigeria's post-military rule economic reforms on its construction industry, where the Chinese firms have subsequently made the biggest inroads and improved competition vis-à-vis firms from other countries. Nevertheless, unfolding reforms in Nigeria, aimed at promoting local contents and improving local capacities, appeared to pose major setbacks to the operations of the Chinese firms. In consequence, this study recommends strategic and sustainable joint ventures between Chinese firms and competent as well as credible local firms for mutual benefits, even as Nigeria grapples with the associated challenges of rapid urbanization as part of its economic growth plans. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
