China's Priorities in Africa

Chatham House in London just released a summary of a 13 June 2014 discussion with Zhong Jianhua, China's special representative for African Affairs, titled "China's Priorities in Africa: Enhancing Engagements."

Ambassador Zhong explains that he spends much of his time on South Sudan but also is engaged with Somalia, DRC, CAR, and Mali.  He frankly acknowledges that Chinese companies operating in Africa are sometimes uninformed about the political situation while others try to hide problems from the local Chinese embassy.
