The Africa-China relationship is one of the most important partnerships of the 21st century. However, despite the achievements & potential of the relationship, challenges remain: limited cultural understanding, trade imbalances and insufficient African Agency.

Kente & Silk aims to change the status quo of China-Africa relations and drive towards a new era of Africa-China partnerships.

WHAT WE DO

We are changing the status quo of Africa—China in three ways:

We host innovative events that promote African culture, art and businesses. Our events enable meaningful connections between Africans & Chinese, and a richer understanding of Africa in China.

We enable African stakeholders strategically engage with China through consulting, market research and partnership development. Our products support increased African agency.

We host innovative field-trips to Africa for young Chinese professionals and students to enable them gain a deeper and more holistic understanding of the continent.

We’ve been bold and have successfully executed on our vision for a new era of Africa-China relations.
