More than 50 African leaders are expected to be in Beijing in September for the upcoming Forum on China Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) summit. While Africa’s largest and most strategically important countries will likely do very well, receiving huge financial packages, aid programs and more, smaller countries will have to fight for everything they get. In this episode, Eric & Cobus speak with Dr. Hodan Osman Abdi, an advisor in China to Somali president Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, on how she plans to ensure that Somalia's voice is heard at FOCAC.
Join the discussion. Is it healthy for China to have this summits every three years where the expectations are increasingly focused on ‘how much money will Beijing give this time?’ Let us know what you think.
