Examining China's Investments in African Nations: PROMISE & INFLUENCE

Wednesday, April 14 5 – 6:30 p.m.

Online - Zoom

Join us for another riveting CBSI hosted event. There is no denying that China has been a global leader in many areas over the past few decades. Perhaps one of its significant influences has arguably been China's ability to invest in developing economies, specifically direct investments to African nations, ranging from mining raw materials, infrastructure development, and market penetration. Finally, China's political motivation in Africa's development is undoubtedly achieving a more significant global influence. The purpose of this CBSI panel is to examine whether or not China's interests in Africa are legitimate particularity in the 21st century's ever-changing global economy and what the US should do in response, if anything.

The China Business Studies Initiative (CBSI) is the San Francisco/Silicon Valley-based thought-leader, knowledge hub, and relationship builder for the U.S. business and its global connections, bridging China, Asia, and the rest of the world.
