The China-Africa Research Initiative (CARI) at Johns Hopkins SAIS is hosting the following event in Washington DC next week:

Policy Roundtable: Prospects for U.S.-China-Africa Relations in the Trump Era

Wednesday, April 26, 2017, 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM Johns Hopkins SAIS – Nitze Building, Kenney-Herter Auditorium 1740 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest, Washington DC 20036   Please make sure to register via Eventbrite:

At the start of Barack Obama’s presidency in 2009, China surpassed the United States as Africa’s top trade partner. As Chinese engagement in Africa continued to diversify, President Obama ushered in an Africa foreign policy that included events such as the U.S.-Africa Leaders’ Summit as well as commitments under Power Africa and Trade Africa. Now, how will the respective roles of the United States and China in Africa change during the Trump administration? Will existing opportunities for constructive trilateral collaboration remain, or will they need to be modified? How will African countries respond to these shifts? This roundtable will draw on the public and private sectors to explore the future of U.S.-China-Africa relations in an evolving geopolitical landscape.
