    Jonathan Kaiman, Beijing bureau chief for the Los Angeles Times, recently spent a month in Africa reporting on China’s deepening influence across the continent. In Ghana, Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti, he found that Africans’ enthusiasm for the country, once sustained by waves of easy money, is beginning to wane; that they’re beginning to see the drawbacks of dealing so closely with the world’s newest superpower, one incalculably different from the retrenching West. Come hear Jonathan’s rare insights into the changing face of the China-Africa relationship, with stories from Djiboutian-Chinese restaurants, Ethiopian factories, rural Ghanaian gambling halls, and much, much more.

    ENTRANCE: Free for FCCC Members, 40RMB Bookworm Members, 50RMB Non-members.
