Held in parallel with the second summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), the workshop focused on three priority areas, designed to raise key issues for consideration at the summit:

  • China’s changing role in the global economy and the impact of this on the African economic environment, as well as on development in Africa generally;
  • the role of natural resources and wildlife in China-Africa trade, including opportunities for diversification away from a natural resources-based economic model;
  • issues of governance, peace, and security.
