I joined Debra Brautigam of American University and Steve Hayes, president of the Corporate Council on Africa, in a 1 November hearing held by the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Subcommittee on African Affairs that examined China’s growing role in Africa.
Chairman Chris Coons of Delaware organized and chaired the hearing. Other senators in attendance included Johnny Isakson of Georgia, Richard Durbin of Illinois, Richard Lugar of Indiana, Benjamin Cardin of Maryland, and Tim Udall of New Mexico.
