A stimulating discussion with Lina Getachew Ayenew, author of: “The Complete Beginner’s Guide to China-Africa Relations”. Lina has spent the past five years documenting China's emergence as a key player in Africa's economic development and distilling mega-themes from the work of leading researchers. During this time, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) roared across the globe, Africa welcomed Chinese tech advances and educational opportunities, China banned domestic ivory trade and Trump was elected. Lina discusses this and much more and brings them together in this landmark book covering the China-Africa relationship from 2014-2018. She discusses these themes, issues and more in her book and Kente & Silk is hosting an event to provide students, journalists, diplomats of business executives curious about China-Africa relations to understand the link between China and Africa

What people say?

I was very impressed by the vibrant and thriving energy, not only of Lina, but of the whole African and Chinese community present at this event

This book is more than interesting for me and I think it will help a lot of people who are beginning to understand the relationship between Africa and China
