The #China/ #SinoAfrica containment narrative is not useful for analyzing #Japan-#Africa development relations. Using a tug-of-war language to paint a🇨🇳-🇯🇵 standoff shows how much the🇺🇸- 🇨🇳rivalry colors #Africa's partnerships. 🇯🇵's #TICAD7 is a very different product from #FOCAC
#TICAD started in 1993, many moons before #FOCAC. #Japan did get inspired by #China's forum model and changed from meeting every 5 years to now every 3. TICAD also recently started alternating between #Japan and an #Africa|n hosts (like FOCAC) but
Using a zero-sum narrative doesn't work simply because there's a lot of room for #TICAD, #FOCAC, #India, #Russia.. What it shows tho is that the Forum Model is a favored #diplomacy w/ #Africa platform. Hosting public officials, organizing banquets, seminars, building connections
