I will be giving an after dinner talk on China in Africa – the positives at the Chopsticks Club in London on 11 September. Details via this link http://www.chopsticksclub.com/ The club is a networking and cultural exchange for China focused professionals in the UK. I have attended a couple of past events, so I think my talk should provide a lively debate!

The sad case of the Chinese mining manager killed in Zambia sparked a flurry of articles in the international press. I was interviewed by BBC Mundo regarding the case and Chinese – African labour relations in general.
