Continuing a 31-year tradition, China’s Foreign Minister is in Africa for his first official visit of the new year. With talks centering on vaccine cooperation, economic recovery and transformative development, what does Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s visit mean for a continent hit hard by the pandemic? What tops the agenda for African countries when it comes to deepening ties with China? And where do China-Africa relations go from here? To discuss these issues, we’ve invited He Wenping, Senior Research Fellow at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences; Hannah Ryder, Founder & CEO of Development Reimagined; and Dr. Adekunle Osidipe, Researcher at the Institute of African Studies at Zhejiang Normal University.
