Welcome!

I am not that active on social media. Some people think that’s super cool and confident. Others, like my 20-year-old sister, think it’s lame not to share what matters to me. Mostly it is because I am an old person trapped in a millennial’s body.

So this is the middle ground…where I share some stuff from my professional life. The pictures are hazy because I was not thinking much about posting when I took them. Sorry!

My second book! Coming soon!!

If you are curious about the extraordinary evolution of China-Africa relations in the 21st century, look no further. Lina Getachew Ayenew has spent the past five years documenting China's emergence as a key player in Africa's economic development, distilling mega-themes from the work of leading researchers. Whether you are a student, journalist, diplomat, or business executive, "The Complete Beginner's Guide to China-Africa Relations" will provide the tools you need to understand the link between China and Africa, which together represent more than 1/3 of the world's population. This series covers the 2014-2018 time span, a crucial period in this shared history: The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) roared across the globe, Africa welcomed Chinese tech advances and educational opportunities, China banned domestic ivory trade and Trump was elected. Lina discusses this and much more.
