China’s Ambassador to Botswana, Wang Xuefeng, led a post-FOCAC briefing of overseas Chinese diaspora from Africa to bring them up to speed on everything that happened at the conference in Dakar and just to make sure they’re all aligned when it comes to key issues like Xi Jinping Thought and “China’s reunification with Taiwan.”

Some 200 participants in 30 African countries joined the online event last weekend. It featured a litany of speakers from the CCP, African studies departments in Chinese universities, and various Sino-African business organizations.
