The Wits China-Africa Reporting Project has launched a new website on reporting FOCAC6 via a collaboration with the China Africa Project. The new website, which can be accessed at http://www.reporting-focac.com, contains background on China-Africa (China-Africa myths, China-Africa relations, Chinese media in Africa), resources for reporters covering the conference (audio guides and key themes), and online resources (China-Africa Twitter list, China-Africa lists of long reads, books, documents and sites).
The site is also replete with infographics and is easy to use for journalists, and a Chinese language version of the site can be accessed at http://www.reporting-focac.com/home-cn.html.
The Wits China-Africa Reporting Project’s Roundtable will take place on November 12, and will see a range of international experts discuss the multimedia and various other aspects of FOCAC6.
