The United States and China are Africa’s most important bilateral partners; both have a vested interest in Africa’s success. Their respective interests are often framed as competitive over Africa's vast natural resources and emerging markets. This conference seeks to offer an objective look at the relationship among the U.S., China, and the countries of Africa.
This symposium will explore areas of common interests and goals while acknowledging the well worn argument that China and the U.S. compete in Africa. Finally, it will ask the simple question: how can the U.S. and China work individually and together to promote political stability and economic development in Africa?More information is available here.
