Reimagining Africa-China relations post-US-African Leaders’ Summit

From December 13–15, 2022, at the invitation of the US President, Joe Biden, 49 African Heads of State, along with the Chairman of the African Union, were in Washington, D.C., and participated in the 2nd U.S.-Africa Leadership Summit.

The Summit highlighted how the US is planning to strengthen its partnership with Africa vis-à-vis, as it were, guarding against other interests on the continent, be it China, Russia, Turkey, etc.

If you are a key follower of Africa-China relations in any form or shape, then you will probably be familiar with the term “FOCAC-Forum on China-Africa Cooperation.”

Twenty-two years later, FOCAC continues to serve its purpose as a platform for collective discourse on cooperation between Africa and China.

In this webinar, we delve into the current trends of US-Africa relations and how that will impact Africa-China relations. What should be Africa’s focus in this renewed interest of the US in the continent? And going forward, as a continent, how can we ensure win-win cooperation between US and China relations?
