Growing caution in Africa for Chinese investment and trade is an opportunity for British expertise to develop partnerships bridging Chinese resources and African demand.
Chinese investment in Africa has gained widespread attention over the last decades. The negative side of Chinese activity on the continent is an often repeated story of dubious ethical practices and an influx of Chinese labour. What is the situation now, and what role can British businesses play?
Joint Anglo - Chinese business developments combine the financial resources of China with British expertise on delivering quality controlled, sustainable and responsible projects across Africa.
The reputation of Brand Britain is one of higher quality – reinforced by the UK Bribery Act of 2010. Can these two be married to offer a more sustainable package for African development?
BCA & ABG welcome a panel of expert speakers to shed light on the future of this business landscape from the perspectives of academic research, partnership case studies and those with experience of African state policy towards Chinese interventions.
