This documentary looks at the impact of African migration into China and the greater economic impact Africans will continue to have. As Europe and America build fortress societies, the Chinese recognise that ease of movement will become a key part of sustained economic development. Philosopher and political scientist Achille Mbembe, and Ian Goldin, former Vice-President of the World Bank & advisor to Nelson Mandela, analyse the significance of this development.
