The Africa-China relationship is one of the most important partnerships of the 21st century.
However, despite the achievements & potential of the relationship, challenges remain:
limited cultural understanding, trade imbalances and insufficient African Agency.
Kente & Silk aims to change the status quo of China-Africa relations and drive towards a new era of Africa-China partnerships.
Organizing such an ambitious, rich and diversified program in Beijing is certainly not an easy task. I confess that when I first saw your project I had doubts that it would be possible to realize it, but you did and you excelled! Not only did you put it together but you also managed to involve a huge number of people from the African communities, people of African descent, Chinese and other nationalities.
Kente & Silk put on an incredible event (book launch of The Complete Beginner’s Guide to China-Africa Relations) with an insightful speaker on a topic too often left out of the limelight – as was evidenced by the queues out the door! Highly recommend those in the Beijing community to keep their eyes peeled. Kente & Silk are on to something here…
