China's 20th Party Congress and Africa

 The Diplomat published on 14 October 2022 a commentary titled "What's At Stake for Africa in China's 20th Party Congress?" by Judith Mwai, Development Reimagined.

First, measures that affect China's economic growth will have a major impact on trade and travel with Africa.  Second, the Congress will impact loans to Africa and African debt held by China.  Third, there is a question whether China will continue to take steps to encourage the reform of multilateral institutions such as the G-20 that could benefit Africa.
