This week on the Caixin-Sinica Business Brief: Chinese and U.S. trade negotiators scramble to strike a deal before tariffs ratchet up once again on December 15, economic forecasts say China’s real GDP could slow for the third year in a row, and a former anti-corruption official is placed on the naughty list. In addition, we speak with Caixin Gl ...…
 
News coverage and social media commentary about the recent deal signed between the Ghanian government and the Chinese state-owned construction conglomerate Sinohydro is almost universally negative. According to deal, Ghana would exchange 5% of its bauxite reserves for $2 billion of infrastructure. But critics in Ghana and internationally conten ...…
 
It's counterintuitive to a lot of people, but Chinese and African agriculture has a lot more in common with one another than many first expect. For the most part, both are dominated by small family farms that have to battle mightily with the twin effects of climate change and industrialization. On the climate change front, drought haunts many p ...…
 
Chinese investors have been wary of the African market. For a long time, China's cash-rich venture capital, private equity, and corporate investors have preferred the stability in the U.S. or the cultural familiarity in Southeast Asia's markets. Africa, in their view, just didn't have the profile they were looking for as an investment destinati ...…
 
Ghana is moving forward with an environmentally-risky resources-for-infrastructure deal with the Chinese state-owned construction conglomerate Sinohydro. According to the agreement, Ghana will provide 5% of its bauxite reserves to Sinohydro in exchange for a $2 billion package of infrastructure that includes roads, bridges, power plants and oil ...…
 
This week on the Caixin-Sinica Business Brief: China’s state-owned telecommunications operators begin to eye 6G; Y Combinator’s YC China shutters its China operations; and the Chinese pork industry shows signs of life after the outbreak of African swine fever last year. In addition, we speak with the head of breaking news at Caixin Global, Tann ...…
 
Persistent Chinese demand for donkey hides is now pushing the animal's population in many countries, including a number in Africa, to the brink of collapse according to a new report by the Donkey Sanctuary. The skins are used to make gelatin that used in a Chinese medicine known as ejiao. But given the popularity of ejiao and the enormous deman ...…
 
African countries are not traditionally known for having strong space programs but now as the cost of launching satellites into orbit falls, that's starting to change and Africa is becoming one of the fastest-growing space markets in the world. In contrast to programs in the U.S., Europe or Russia where space initiatives are often research-driv ...…
 
This week on the Caixin-Sinica Business Brief: military technology, gene editing, and quantum computing enter China’s primary school curriculum, China lifts a four-year ban on U.S. poultry, and Singapore becomes a prime destination for investors looking away from Hong Kong. In addition, we speak with Caixin Global managing editor Doug Young abo ...…
 
Ethiopia stands out from other African countries for its ability to attract Chinese companies to open factories there. Through a combination of tax incentives, industrial parks, and its strategic location, Ethiopia is outpacing pretty much every other African country in luring light manufacturing companies to set up shop. But in a country that ...…
 
This week, on episode 103 of the Caixin-Sinica Business Brief: Beijing’s former vice mayor pleads guilty to taking $19 million in bribes, Alibaba inches toward a second IPO in Hong Kong, and an update on the tepid and tentative trade agreement being hashed out between Beijing and Washington. In addition, we talk with Caixin-Global managing edit ...…
 
At first glance, it would seem that the Trump administration’s decision to revoke Cameroon’s free-trade privileges would be counterproductive at this time when the U.S. is battling hard against the Chinese for influence in Africa. After all, Washington sanctioning Youndé on human rights plays right into the hands of the Chinese who say this is ...…
 
This week on episode 101 of the Caixin-Sinica Business Brief: China rolls out 5G service, Switzerland gives Huawei the green light, and Alibaba eyes a second IPO after a glowing earnings report. In addition, we talk with Tanner Brown, head of breaking news at Caixin Global about the findings of a climate change report and the potentially catast ...…
 
It wasn't that long ago when France was by far the dominant foreign actor in West Africa. "Francafrique's" once ubiquitous power allowed it to dominate virtually all aspects of political and economic life in its former colonies. That's no longer the case. Today, France is just a marginal player in most West African countries. Take Senegal, for ...…
 
Last week's Russia-Africa Summit in the Black Sea city of Sochi marked Moscow's formal re-entry into the African diplomatic arena. The Russians put on a good show, promising Chinese-style "win-win" development and "no strings attached" aid, all of which was enthusiastically embraced by the 40 African leaders who attended the summit. But somethi ...…
 
The pace of Chinese manufacturing going offshore has picked up significantly in the past year, spurred on by U.S. sanctions and the worsening U.S.-China trade conflict. Regardless of what's going on with the U.S., manufacturers were already motivated by China's rising labor costs and heightened environmental regulations to relocate their plants ...…
 
This week on episode 101 of the Caixin-Sinica Business Brief: sluggish third-quarter GDP growth in China, African swine fever ravages the domestic pork supply in China, and with the help of a Tencent-backed company, Star Wars novels will be translated into Chinese for mainland audiences. In addition, we talk with Caixin Global managing editor D ...…
 
Nigerian Dickson Agbaji is not famous. He's not a singer, a movie star or a popular online celebrity. So, according to the conventional definition of soft power, a guy like Dickson would not be considered very important. But in the long game that China is playing in Africa, investing in people like Dickson today with an eye towards reaping divi ...…
 
When Shenzhen-based Transsion Holdings IPO'd last month no one predicted that it would surge a stunning 64% on its opening day of trading in Shanghai, pushing the company's valuation to around $7 billion. But it really shouldn't have come as a surprise given that Transsion's suite of mobile phone brands is now dominant in Africa with more than ...…
 
On this 100th episode of the Caixin-Sinica Business Brief: The trade deal that will pause the U.S.-China trade war, the Hong Kong protests and the NBA, the backlash against Blizzard Entertainment, and more. In addition, we talk with Caixin Global managing editor Doug Young on Apple’s pulling of the app HKmap.live and the fallout of a tweet supp ...…
 
The presence of Chinese workers who are helping to build the billions of dollars of infrastructure across Africa is one of the most contentious points in the China-Africa relationship. These workers are often seen as unwelcome guests doing jobs that could or should be done by locals. There is a myriad of reasons why they've been brought to plac ...…
 
Christian missionaries in Kenya are finding a new source of converts among the immigrant Chinese population that came to the country to build infrastructure. Kenyan evangelists, some of whom speak fluent Mandarin, are discovering even though their religion and cultural backgrounds are completely different from those of the Chinese, they are non ...…
 
For most countries, aid and investment are two entirely different things. Not with the Chinese, though, where until recently the country's aid programs were actually managed through the Ministry of Commerce. Because the Chinese have such an opaque system, it's very difficult for outsiders to understand what programs are being managed by which m ...…
 
China's critics, largely in the U.S., often hold up the Sri Lankan port in Hambantota as the cautionary tale of what purportedly can happen when a developing country fails to pay back its loans to Beijing. Because Sri Lanka fell behind in its payments, according to the story, China, in turn, took control of the port which is all part of a large ...…

Dean Diabate first came to China in 2008, a very long time ago in the world of Chinese eCommerce. Back then, people didn't buy much online or use mobile payments. In fact, no one had ever heard of the now-ubiquitous super app WeChat, much less Alipay or any of the countless digital platforms that have transformed daily life in China. Dean just ...…
 
China's approach to lending money to developing countries is radically different from that of traditional donors in the U.S., Europe, and Japan. The difference between China's approach and those of traditional lenders have given way for critics to accuse Beijing of engaging what they call "debt-trap diplomacy." Ma Xinyue, China Research and Pro ...…

Fyjo Molly uses an unusual way to phoneticize her English YouTube handle name. The Chinese characters for Africa, 非洲, are typically spelled "feizhou" but writing it as "Fyjo" Molly put her own little twist on the name, much like her video blogs where she presents an upbeat, quirky view of African life that is rarely seen by outsiders, especiall ...…

Journalists Anthony Langat from Kenya, Qian Sun from China and Jacob Kushner from the United States, join Eric & Cobus to discuss their recent report on the Chinese philanthropic-backed company New South's ambitious yet somewhat controversial plan to eradicate malaria in Kenya. They've already done it on the tiny African island of Comoros but K ...…
 
54 countries and international organizations will convene at the end of August in Yokohama for the seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development or TICAD. While the event is ostensibly about Japanese engagement with Africa, a lot of attendees will likely have China on their minds during the two-day summit. Japanese officials are ...…
 
South Africa's state-owned power utility Eskom is in dire straits. The electric power company now has more than $30 billion of debt and its current revenue no longer provides enough money to cover daily operational costs. Now, as a result of the ongoing financial crisis at the company, Eskom is now load-shedding with rolling blackouts across th ...…

Chinese diplomatic missions in Africa have long had a reputation for being inaccessible, even unapproachable. Ambassadors often shied away from unscripted public events, journalists seeking any kind of comment were largely brushed away and engagement with local NGOs and civil society actors was unheard of. That's now starting to change. Chinese ...…

For many of the hundreds of thousands of Chinese who live and work in Africa, life is often is not easy.

Atlantic Council Senior Fellow Aubrey Hurby joins Eric and Cobus to discuss her new report on how the United States can catch up, or "challenge," China's commercial expansion in Africa. The bottom line, Aubrey writes, is that the U.S. can no longer be 'all things to all people' and must focus its policy efforts on those areas where it retains a ...…

Africa's commodity-dependent economies are extremely vulnerable to the current uncertainties roiling global markets, specifically the heightening trade tensions between the U.S. and China.

Africa is urbanizing faster than any region in the world. Today, an estimated 472 million Africans live in cities and that number is expected to double over the next 25 years, according to research by the Center for Strategic and International Studies. That means governments have to start to build massive amounts of infrastructure now to accomm ...…
 
Author and Hudson Institute senior research fellow Bruno Maçães joins Eric and Cobus to discuss the key drivers of China's hugely ambitious Belt and Road Initiative that he outlined in his recent book, "Belt and Road: A Chinese World Order."
