SHANGHAI – 26 May 2018 – The Beijing Axis attended the Shanghai Forum 2018 held on 26-28 May 2018 at the Shanghai International Convention Center and Fudan University in Shanghai. Co-hosted by Fudan University and the Korea Foundation for Advanced Studies, this year’s theme is about “Global Governance and Asia: Asia's Responsibilities in a World of Change”.

Launched in 2005, the Shanghai Forum is known as one of the most famous international forums held in Shanghai. Undertaken by the Fudan Development Institute (FDDI), the Forum is a non-governmental and non-profit academic organization, which holds an annual symposium each May in Shanghai and takes its mission to “Concentrate on Asia, Focus on Hot Issues, Congregate Elites, Promote Interactions, Enhance Cooperation and Seek Consensus”.

A special segment of the Forum was the China-Africa Relations Roundtable held on 26-27 May 2018. The roundtable on China-Africa relations discussed key themes in China-Africa economic cooperation, with the aim of offering fresh ideas for realizing greater shared gains. Under the theme of “China-Africa Relations Towards Shared Prosperity”, the roundtable was divided into two sessions. The first brought together public and private sector leaders, while the second brought together a group of world-leading scholars, alongside diplomatic and private sector leaders.

Ms. Miriam Altman, Commissioner of the National Planning Commission (NPC) of South Africa (SA), warmly welcomed the delegates to the roundtable session.
