Remembering July 2016, when a delegation from the Democratic Republic of the Congo visited Wales to trace the links between the two countries. They focused on two towns, Colwyn Bay - the site of the African Institute, and Denbigh, the home town of 19th century explorer and journalist Henry Morton Stanley.

See two short videos of their visit here:
