A webcast is available of the special workshop on ‘China-Africa: a maturing relationship? Growth, change and resilience,’ held on 3 December 2015 by SAIIA and the DFID-ESRC Growth Research Programme (DEGRP).

This one-day workshop brought together researchers from DEGRP’s China-Africa research stream and SAIIA, as well as other participants from academia and the private sector, to discuss key issues influencing Sino-African relations.

Held in parallel with the second summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), the workshop focused on three priority areas, designed to raise key issues for consideration at the summit:

  • China’s changing role in the global economy and the impact of this on the African economic environment, as well as on development in Africa generally;
  • the role of natural resources and wildlife in China-Africa trade, including opportunities for diversification away from a natural resources-based economic model;
  • issues of governance, peace, and security.
