Why The China Africa Advisory?
Africa rises at a time at which political commitment, knowledge, technology and financing exist for embarking on sustainable development pathways. All African countries pledged to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 and create a “prosperous Africa based on inclusive growth and sustainable development” under the African Union’s Agenda 2063. More and more African countries are already in the process of putting national strategies and plans into action towards attaining these ambitious goals.
For most African countries China has become a key partner for investment, trade and development cooperation, in particular for industrialization, infrastructure, agriculture and natural resources. While China offers a broad range of opportunities, it also has the capacity to provide knowledge, technology and financing for realizing sustainable development in African countries. We support African, Chinese and international clients to utilize China-Africa relations, including through South-South and triangular cooperation, towards this objective in line with African countries’ development strategies and China’s commitment to fostering sustainable development in Africa.
The Co-Founders of the China Africa Advisory have been closely following Africa’s and China’s development since the early 2000s and witnessing first-hand the rapidly expanding Africa-China relations. After 15 years in sustainable development policy-making processes, development cooperation and business consulting, the Co-Founders established this independent advisory firm to support a global clientele to better understand these fast-paced developments and to make use of arising opportunities.
