It's long been said that while China may have an Africa policy, African do not have a China policy. In particular, too many Africans do not understand the language, culture and politics of their new number one trading partner. The University of Botswana, for its part, is trying to change that. UB has one of the most ambitious Chinese studies programs in Africa. Dr. Frank Youngman helped establish the Chinese undergraduate & graduate studies programs at UB and joins Eric & Cobus to discuss the curricula and the difficulties the university's having in growing its Chinese studies department.
