Event Details

As interactions between China and African countries grow, observers predict that the cooperative relationship could revitalize Africa and promote much-needed economic development. China has made significant investments in infrastructure, education, and technology in return for natural resources and market access, but some experts question if these arrangements are as beneficial for the African governments and societies involved as they have been for Beijing.

As interactions between China and African countries grow, observers predict that the cooperative relationship could revitalize Africa and promote much-needed economic development. China has made significant investments in infrastructure, education, and technology in return for natural resources and market access, but some experts question if these arrangements are as beneficial for the African governments and societies involved as they have been for Beijing.

Tang Xiaoyang will present an analysis from his latest book on China’s economic operations in Africa. In it, he characterizes China-Africa economic exchanges not as bilateral in nature, but as many contextualized series of engagements situated in an expanding global market economy. Afterward, Shi Zhiqin will moderate a discussion with Li Anshan, He Wenping, and Zhang Haisen.

Tang Xiaoyang is a resident scholar at the Carnegie–Tsinghua Center for Global Policy and an assistant professor in the Department of International Relations at Tsinghua University. His research interests include political philosophy, China’s modernization process, and China’s engagement in Africa. At the Carnegie–Tsinghua Center, Tang’s research focuses on China-Africa relations, with a particular emphasis on the dynamics of Beijing’s interactions with African member states of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

Shi Zhiqin is a resident scholar at the Carnegie–Tsinghua Center for Global Policy, where he runs the China-EU Relations program and the China-NATO dialogue series.
