Live Podcast: Emerging Trends and Myths in Africa-China Relations: Live from the AIJC, Johannesburg

First published by the China Global South Project

China’s relationship with Africa is undergoing profound change in the post-pandemic era. Chinese engagement on the continent has fallen precipitously with a massive drop in people-to-people exchanges, development finance lending, and academic engagement.

In this year’s annual forum event of the Africa-China Reporting Project, the Project held a special live episode of the show broadcast from the African Investigative Journalism Conference on the campus of Wits University in Johannesburg. Eric and Cobus explore the emerging trends and new myths in China-Africa relations with a distinguished panel of journalists and analysts.

The panelists included:

  • Sanusha Naidu, Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Global Dialogue
  • Geraud Neema, Francophone Editor at The China-Global South Project
  • Bongiwe Tutu, Project Coordinator at The Africa-China Reporting Project
  • Isak Lam, China-based researcher and journalist
  • Sisi Mi, China-based researcher and data journalist

[DISCLAIMER: This special bonus episode was recorded live from a classroom on the campus of Wits University in Johannesburg. Unfortunately, the audio quality has echo — but we hope that you’ll give the show a chance and listen to what was a very lively and informative discussion]
