Questions abound, yet one thing is certain: the world is watching, hopeful yet cautious, eager to see if the BRI will indeed pave the way towards a verdant, sustainable legacy.
ACCPA and CAI have expressed their commitment and agreed to collaborate on projects, including but not limited to the issuing of policy papers and briefs, etc.
Africa must build solid foundations for policies for local and global adherence – Prof. David Norris
For African nations to reduce their over-dependence on the Chinese BRI in mitigating potential debt repayment challenges, we need to be innovative in terms of our resource utilization.
This BRI has rekindled a focus and broadened the vistas of cooperation, enveloping infrastructure development, economic coalitions, and a shared aspiration for a synergistic rapport.
According to Paul Frimpong, the Executive Director of the Africa-China Centre for Policy and Advisory (ACCPA), the world, and especially developing countries, including Africa, should be vigilant to avoid being forced into accepting narratives around China’s Belt and Road Initiative as the main cause of their debt-related crisis.
The Africa-China Centre for Policy & Advisory, in partnership with Metro TV’s Metro Business Week Show, hosted a dialogue on China’s Belt and Road Initiative and Africa’s Infrastructure Development Ambitions.
For Africa, the BRI, if implemented sustainably and responsibly, has the potential to meet the continent’s long-term development needs
It’s critical to understand that while the main goal of China’s Belt and Road Initiative is to enhance economic cooperation through increased connectivity, it also has the capacity to ignite global peace.
The BRI Dialogue is an annual summit hosted by the Africa-China Centre for Policy & Advisory.
This year’s dialogue will be held virtually on Tuesday, October 31, 2023, at 10 am GMT.
