From the iron ore mines of Perú to illegal logging camps in the Siberian forests and a giant dam in Sudan, Juan Pablo Cardenal will discuss how China is changing the developing world.

Cardenal will tell stories he gathered in 25 countries over two years of research for his recently published book “China’s Silent Army: The Pioneers, Traders, Fixers and Workers Who Are Remaking the World in Beijing’s Image”.
