Episode Summary

EDIT
Dr. Deborah Brautigam: The Real Story of China in Africa
AIRED:
In a program of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, professor and author Deborah Brautigam discusses her new book The Dragons Gift: The Real Story of China in Africa on February 9, 2010 in New York. The book examines Chinese aid and state-sponsored economic engagement in Africa, and China's distinct attitudes towards foreign aid, which result in aid implementation that often differs from Western models.China's aid in Africa is based on mutual benefit and goes far beyond a popular western misconception of a simple effort to extract oil and other strategic natural resources. China views Africa as an evolving landscape presenting many opportunities. Through diverse infrastructure projects, bilateral trade partnerships and investment, China demonstrates that helping African countries also develops local business and commerce.Dr. Br-utigam teaches in the International Development Program at American University's School of International Service in Washington, D.C. She has lived in Asia and Africa as a Fulbright researcher and consultant for the World Bank, the United Nations, and other development agencies.The National Committee on U.S.-China Relations is a nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization that encourages understanding of China and the United States among citizens of both countries. The National Committee's continuity of experience and depth of associations with senior officials and distinguished citizens of China and the United States make it a unique national resource. The National Committee focuses its exchange, educational, and policy programs on international relations, economic development and management, governance and legal affairs, environmental and other global concerns, mass communication, and education administration -- addressing these issues with respect to the People's Republic, Hong Kong SAR and Taiwan.moreless
