With the Forum on China Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) summit now just weeks away, international press coverage of the event is now ramping up. Over the past several weeks, Eric & Cobus have done a number of interviews with journalists around the world about what to expect at the upcoming summit and a few discernable themes that emerged from their questions.

This week, Eric and Cobus discuss the media perceptions of China in different parts of the world that will likely shape how people interpret the outcomes of next month's FOCAC summit.

Join the discussion? Do you agree that different parts of the world view China in sharply different ways? What are the perceptions of China, the Chinese and FOCAC in your community? Let us know what you think?
