China is increasing its presence in Africa and Latin America, through the roll-out of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). However, the means and actors involved are changing.

In this seminar we invite Xiangming Chen, a renowned scholar on BRI-related issues, to share his insights and discuss and compare those changes and the implications for sustainable transformations in the two regions. Xiangming is a guest researcher at the Research Council of Norway (RCN) funded project “Moving up the value chain: Intermediation in industrial upgrading in the Pearl River Delta” and Fudan European Centre for China Studies (FECCS), Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages, UiO.
