China – Africa: High time for a common integrated African policy on China

Proceedings report of a symposium held by the Institute for Global Dialogue (IGD) associated with UNISA, Africa-China Reporting Project (ACRP), and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) 20th July 2017, Johannesburg

 The Africa-China Reporting Project, in partnership with the Institute for Global Dialogue (IGD) and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung hosted a Symposium at Wits University’s Senate Room on July 20 under the theme High time for a common integrated African policy on China.

China’s first policy towards Africa was released in 2006 and a second version was released in 2015, yet Africa remains without a common policy towards China. As the current co-chair of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), South Africa is uniquely positioned to guide the consolidation of the African agenda and framework in Africa-China engagements, including the realisation of greater collaboration with the outcomes of the African Union’s Agenda 206.
