Invite you to a symposium on

China – Africa: high time for a common integrated African policy on China

The 2015 Johannesburg Summit and 6th Ministerial Conference of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) marked the 15th year since the initiation of the FOCAC mechanism in 2000 and nearly a decade since the Beijing Summit of 2006. The 2nd FOCAC Summit adopted two outcome documents, namely the Johannesburg Declaration and the Johannesburg Action Plan (2016-2018), laying out comprehensive plans for China-Africa relations and practical cooperation for the next three years through a range of new ideas and policies.

As current co-chair of the Forum, South Africa is uniquely positioned to guide the consolidation of the African agenda in China-Africa engagement, including the realisation of greater synergy between the outcomes of Johannesburg and Africa’s agenda 2063.
In line with increasing calls for a unified African policy and strategy, this symposium presents a platform to critically examine the prospects of a Pan-African policy and strategy to guide Africa’s engagement with China, in addition to taking stock of the implementation of the Johannesburg Action Plan.
