Talk Africa: China’s Two Sessions & Africa

Chinese President Xi Jinping laid out his vision of the Chinese Dream and its worldwide impact as the curtain rolled down on the 13th National People’s Congress session. Xi assured the world that a great, prosperous and strong China will be a contributor rather than a threat to the world.

CGTN’s Beatrice Marshall was joined by Professor He Wenping, Director of African Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Mithika Mwenda, PhD candidate at the School of Governance of the University of the Witwatersrand, and David Owiro, Independent consultant analyst of economic and political affairs in Africa, to find out more.
