Zim-China Relations Have Reached A New Level Under Mnangagwa: Chinese Envoy

Uhuru in China for trade talks days after hosting UK PM Theresa May

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday arrived Beijing to attend the Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation holding between September 3 and 4.

President Mnangagwa is expected to hold bilateral talks with his host, President Xi Jinping this week.

On Sunday, Sisulu said one of this year's goals was to "see how FOCAC can be further strengthened to continue to advance common growth and development even more effectively - growth and development that is mutually beneficial to the people of the People's Republic of China and the African continent".

Of the R884 billion pledged in 2015, R94 billion was for South African projects such as the loan agreement between the China Development Bank Corporation and Eskom to assist with financing Eskom's Medupi power station in Lephalale, Limpopo.

Xi and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa will both chair a roundtable discussion at the summit where Chinese and African leaders will discuss China-Africa relations as well as worldwide and regional issues of common concern, the Xinhua report said.

Xi also called for concerted efforts to make the China-Africa cooperation flourishing, make the BRICS cooperation stronger and better, closely communicate and coordinate within multilateral frameworks, protect the legitimate rights of developing countries, promote democracy of global relations, propel the worldwide system and global order to develop in a more equitable and reasonable direction. The Chinese dream meets the African dream in Agenda 2063, the continent's development blueprint.

He said China's relationship with Africa was driven by sincerity and good faith.

Mourinho will now face Lampard in the dug-out and the United boss admitted it was no surprise the Chelsea legend became a coach. The Carabao Cup game with Chelsea will follow a league meeting between the two sides at Stamford Bridge on September 29.

Nations across Africa are hoping that China's enthusiasm for infrastructure investment will help promote industrialisation in their countries.

Jiang said China-Africa cooperation on industrialization, trade, and infrastructure will be the major topic during the meeting.

"Chinese financing being available as an option for African economies is a welcome relief, especially looking at how the International Monetary Fund has tried to dictate areas of potential development for African governments", said Michael Omouyi, executive director of the Centre for Nigerian Studies at Zhejiang Normal University.

He will be accompanied to Beijing by his wife, Aisha, who is scheduled to participate in a Spouses' Programme on China-Africa at the Great Hall of the People, under the theme, "Joining Hands for a Future of AIDS".

The Chinese projects in Africa include the Ethiopia-Djibouti railway and Kenya's standard gauge railway from Mombasa to Nairobi.

On a bilateral level, China is South Africa's largest trading partner, and has been so for nine consecutive years.
