Report: EU Should Follow Example Set by China’s Development Path in Africa

A new report reportedly calls for an urgent overhaul of the EU aid strategy in Africa or else risk it’s “global standing.” In a bit of an odd twist, the authors of the report, or the so-called group of “wise persons” (yes, that’s what they’re called, no joke) are proposing to copy or at least draw inspiration from China’s development experience in Africa.

Here’s what they’re suggesting the European Union do:

  • Get a daily email packed with the latest China-Africa news and analysis.
  • Read exclusive insights on the key trends shaping China-Africa relations.
  • Full access to the News Feed that provides daily updates on Chinese engagement in Africa and throughout the Global South.
