- Summary report
The annual report of the Centre for Chinese Studies, China Africa Relations 2013, highlights the development of China-Africa relations including changes and achievements of the The Centre for Chinese Studies (CCS) at Stellenbosch University during 2013. This annual report is a palette of key events and developments in China-Africa relations in 2013 and the CCS activities on and around these developments. Looking back at the year at times reveals common themes across our varied research strands. In 2013, one of the overarching features in our research was exploring the diversity of China. This annual report contains pictures of various parts of China—and it hopefully includes a few surprising or unusual images. We study China in all its parts, and while we often focus on the political and economic core in Beijing and Shanghai, we also explore Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and Western China.
