An interesting debate on China and Africa organized by Intelligence Squared, based in the United Kingdom.

Many Scholars are at persistent odds whether the relationship with Africa and China will lead to a sustainable economic development.

Stephen Chan and Deborah Brautigam argue that China are adding value to Africa development, while George Ayittea and Ana Maria Gomes are questioning their contribution.


 George Ayittea: The solutions to Africa's problems lie in Africa


Stephen Chan: China appreciates African aspirations in a way the West does not


Deborah Brautigam: China is successful in Africa where NGOs are not - providing infrastructure


Ana Maria Gomes: Africa needs accountability and empowerment of civil society
