The speaker will discuss how African countries are playing a more strategic role in international affairs. He will indicate that global players who understand this and develop greater diplomatic and trade relations with African states will be greatly advantaged. The speaker will argue that unless Western countries move beyond humanitarianism, they will lose ground to the emerging powers of the G20 in an increasingly pivotal region in global affairs.
