THE 5000-MILE REPORT

December 2018 Issue

The various major platforms on which African countries and China came together in 2018 are emblematic of the numerous milestones that have been achieved in the Africa-China relationship thus far. The PATT 5000-Mile Report explores various aspects of the current state of the increasingly complex and dynamic Africa-China relations. The report consists of two sections. The first is a feature section which reflects on the outcomes of the 2018 FOCAC Summit, particularly as they relate to people-to-people exchange between Africa and China and the second section covers key social, political, and economic trends in Africa and within the ambit of the Africa-China relationship.
