African Businesses in China: Meet Ghanaian Tech Entrepreneur Charles Cyril Nettey

Shanghai-based China-Africa watcher Heather Li published the second installment in her new video series that profiles young African entrepreneurs in China. In this episode, she introduces us to Charles Cyril Nettey from Ghana who founded the Africa Diaspora Innovation Group and runs an e-commerce start-up.
