Integrating African, Chinese and Global Perspectives
How can African societies benefit from intensified economic and political ties with China? How can China benefit from socially and political sustainable investments into African economies? To integrate African, Chinese and global perspectives, Yale University is partnering with leading business schools in Africa and China to host a series of high-profile conferences on Africa-China relations.
A Network of Thought Leaders
The conferences bring together established and rising thought leaders on Africa-China relations, including scholars, experts, entrepreneurs, policy makers, activists and opinion leaders. Rather than reiterating well-known problems, the conferences will move beyond existing debates. The objective is to mobilize novel ideas, arguments and solutions to promote balance, sustainability and growth in Africa-China relations.
