THE US vs CHINA: Asia’s new Cold War? addresses the most important question in geopolitics today – the future of relations between the US and China.

How can China’s presence be beneficial to Africa, and what can African countries bring to the cooperation? And what is the response of Europe? What are the main drivers of the success of this relationship? How is this relationship evolving? And last but not least, is this a win-win relationship?
