It is wonderful to be here. And thank you. Strange times we live in. Yessir I am kind of here to support my new boss 🙂. It is official but not public; it will be public on May 15th.
When I think of Africa, what are or will be the dominant industries. Right now I think of tourism (e.g. safaris, pyramids), agriculture (e.g. coffee), mining (e..g. diamonds). What will be the major industries in Africa's future?
Q: I was stuck by your point that China’s readiness to cooperate with corrupt leaders is a big competetive advantage. Can the US counter that advantage? Listening, I get the impression the US can do more with aid and security policy, but commercially we’re tied.
What should the US do to counter China's dominant role in Africa?
Larry and Matthew- excellent speaker and insight on China and Africa! Please pass this on to the speaker.
Some argue that the pandemic has become out of control because China has been manipulating WHO. This is particularly because the director (who is an African) is working in favor of China. Is it possible to comment on this allegation>? Thanks!
Why should Africans treat China as the new sheriff instead of a new competitor for their goods and services? Isn't competition better for the system over all? What does game theory (as stated by John Nash) shows us?
Soji . . . you knocked it out of the park my friend. Excellent presentation.
So, authoritarian, populist approaches pay off economically. What does that mean for the appeal of democracy among African states? Illiberalism wins??
Soji, China has made the US its debtor nation, as well. Is their strategy with us the same as in the case of Africa? Could you briefly compare the implied strategies?
AN EXCELLENT PRESENTATION!
How do you see China’s strategy ‘blowing up in its face’?
Can you clarify how the Chinese investments are detrimental to Africans? What about infrastructure projects?
Well said Soji, corruption is not the monopoly of African countries!
Is it the case that Africa and China’s approach/work there is a ‘new frontier’ for modern China . . . a model for their future?
Excellent as usual. Bravo Soji!
Enlightening presentation. Thank you Soj!.
