China-Africa Relations: A High School Perspective

Annie Hou (侯艺筱) is a third year high school student at Fudan International School in Shanghai who recently spent several weeks in Kenya as part of a program with the Chinese corporate social responsibility NGO China House Kenya. While in Nairobi, Annie had the opportunity to do research on Chinese management and labor practices at construction projects and to learn firsthand about the challenges facing Chinese companies operating in Kenya and Africa as a whole. She joins Eric and Cobus to talk about her experience in Kenya and the perspective of the next generation on the future of Sino-African relations.
