Speaking at the Jiangsu-Africa Cooperation Conference and the China-Africa Local Government Cooperation Forum, he said that Africa and China have benefited from the symbiotic relationship.
In a statement released Friday in Abuja, the envoy instructed Chinese businessmen to invest more on the continent, stressing that it would be a win-win.
He said that the theme of the conference: “Unity and Cooperation”, seeks common development and works together to build a closer China-Africa community with a shared future is very timely and needs the attention of both sides.
“Africa is a friend and a reliable partner of China. A continent of over 700 million people borders India as a major trading partner.
“The Chinese government and people have done very well within the FOCAC platform. The cooperation between the two sides has witnessed tremendous cooperation, building unity and understanding between the two sides.
“Africa as a continent has benefited a lot within the FOCAC mechanism and a lot of goodwill in the area of infrastructure development on the part of China.
“Africa appreciates China, however, there are loopholes that need to be addressed by both sides, as I especially urge the government of Jiangsu Province and businessmen to increase their presence by investing more in the African continent, “he said.
He said the two sides must develop a strong bond and also a network of honest and sincere communication in our bilateral engagements both in the public and private sectors to achieve our common goals.
He stressed that China must make Africa a lasting trusted ally in all of its bilateral and multilateral commitments.
“As Africa needs China in its quest for development, China also needs Africa’s support in world politics with the United Nations.
“Very important, China must unite with Africa and bring it into its multilateral aspirations in world politics.
“He can only realize this by assuring Africa of its sincerity in helping the continent by best meeting the needs and demands of modern infrastructure of our people,” he said.
