What It’s Like to Report the China-Africa Story

The U.S.-based online news site Quartz is among a growing number of international media companies that is investing resources to better cover Africa. The company launched Quartz Africa in June 2015 with the opening of a new bureau in Nairobi and the deployment of a small team of journalists.

 
 

Among those assigned to Kenya was Lily Kuo who previously reported for Quartz from Hong Kong. As a former China-based journalist who now lives and reports on Africa, Lily is among the first reporters on the continent with a distinctive background in Sino-African relations. Although she doesn’t focus exclusively on China-Africa stories, it is most definitely a prominent theme of her coverage.

 
 

Lily joins Eric & Cobus — in the podcast above — to talk about the opportunity and challenges of covering the China-Africa story.
