Yale University is hosting a three-day conference held from 24 - 26 April to discuss the bourgeoning relationship between China and Africa. According to the YFOCAR website, the conference will bring African, Chinese and other delegates to New Haven for a full schedule of events including panels, keynote addresses, discussion seminars, and debates. These events will seek to create an open dialogue to strengthen cross-cultural ties, encourage mutual understanding, and set the stage for long-standing respect between China and the African continent.
Yours truly has been invited to contribute to a panel on economic development in a Sino-African context, which will take place on the last day of the conference, 26 April. Should any China in Africa readers be in and around the New Haven area then, it would be wonderful to make your acquaintance!
Registration for the conference is available on the YFOCAR website (see here). Attendees must complete their registration by 5pm on Sunday, 5 April. Yale will be provided all guests with accommodation and two meals per day.
