In the lead up to Africa Liberation Day on May 25, we are joined by Etsehiwot Negash Kebret and Patrick Anam from Development Reimagined to discuss the African Union – whose predecessor was formed on this date in 1963 – and its growing relationship with China.
Patrick is International Trade Policy and Trade Law Expert based in Nairobi, Kenya. He focuses on international trade law, trade policy, and regional integration. He is currently engaged with Development Reimagined as a Senior Trade Analyst and was the lead author of Development Reimagined’s recent report, From China-Africa to Africa-China: A BluePrint for a Green and Inclusive Continent-Wide Strategy Towards China.
Etsehiwot is a Development Finance Advisor at Development Reimagined focusing on Special Drawing Rights, Multilateral Bank Reform, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and African debt (see, Can a Borrower's Club Lead to Cheaper, Sustainable Debt?). Her writing and contribution can be found in the Diplomat, CSIS Africa, China Dialogue, and Africa Business.
