North America and Africa online event
14 September 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
With a global shift in the economic centre of gravity and a change in administration in the United States, various topical questions are being asked, for instance: Is this the end of disengagement with Africa? Why America and not China? Who needs who? Is the relationship symmetrical or asymmetrical? Since the introduction of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) by the US Congress, have trade relations created winners and losers?
Please join the Development and Alumni Relations Division at Stellenbosch University and the University of Stellenbosch Business School for an online event on Tuesday, 14 September 2021. Prof André Roux, head of Future Studies, and Prof Meshach Aziakpono, professor of Development Finance, will address these pertinent questions, the opportunities and risks for Africa of trade relations with North America, and the lessons Africa needs to learn to strengthen her future.
The future of Africa’s commercial, social and political relations with the Global North is due for an upgrade. Whether you are in business, government or civil society, join us as we interrogate perceptions and provide an update of possibilities.
