China, Africa and Social Media

Veteran journalist Eric Olander moderated a one hour twelve minute radio program on 14 April 2013 titled "China-Africa Relations in the Age of Social Media."  The participants were Cobus van Staden, postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Johannesburg, Yu-Shan Wu, researcher at the South African Institute of International Affairs, and Jinghao Lu, analyst on the China-Africa desk of Frontier Advisory.

While the focus of the discussion was on the impact of social media on China-Africa relations, the wide ranging discussion covered a variety of other issues including Chinese investment in Africa, Zambia as a food source for China, the importance to Chinese of business trust, Chinese tourism in Africa, role of the press, African attitudes towards Chinese, racism and neo-colonialism.
