Chair: Dr Alex Vines OBE, Research Director, Area Studies and International Law; Head, Africa Programme, Chatham House


China is one of a number of international partners that is evolving its Africa policy and relations with African states. As China’s interests in commerce, peace and security and migration are in many ways aligned with those of Western and African countries, there are increasing opportunities for mutually beneficial trilateral cooperation.

Xu Weizhong will discuss evolving Sino-African relations and opportunities for trilateral cooperation.
