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. There have been many challenges and new developments, and this seminar focuses on the role of British business in this new and fast growing business environment.

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.
