China's Africa strategy.

1. Economic Engagement
2. Military Interests
3. UN Peacekeeping
4. Political Party Training
5. Soft Power

USA's African strategy to be released in under a week.

My question : What is Africa's strategy towards the two?
africacenter.org/spotlight/chin…
My take:
For Africa to benefit from these strategies from either the USA or from China, there is need to move as a unit.
When China pledges funding , they do so while looking at Africa as a unit.
We must not forget that every country in Africa has it's own needs and interests.
But these needs should not drive a country to entertain imperialist/exploitative policies.

African countries need to stop being too thirsty for funding without proper monitoring and accountability mechanisms.

There is need to get our own strategy towards the East and the West.

Just got to Davos. Ready to fill the leadership vacuum with big ideas. My focus will be on privilege and women. Only going to #womanels #methree. Also, my alligator-skin boots got snow on them, anyone have a blow drier or an FT I can use to dry them off?
Thread 1/n: Small ideas feel big when I'm in my Gulfstream, so here it goes: We have to innovate on innovation. The 7th industrial revolution disrupts AND displaces. Artificial intelligence and blockchain can only solve resurgent populism with #compassion.
2/n We elites are critical to making this debate glocalized. Thought leadership also involves thought stewardship. Communities form the core of our economies. Blue collar workers must be re-conceived as #newcollar workers. Code is key.
