Hui conveyed the cordial greetings and good wishes to Pinda from Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, saying China treasures the friendly ties forged by leaders of generations of the two countries. He said China and Tanzania are all-weather friends, who have for years supported each other on issues concerned with their core interests on the basis of mutual understanding and respect. China cherishes the Sino-Tanzanian friendship which is in the fundamental interests of the two peoples, he noted.

China is pleased to see the rapid progress in bilateral trade and economic ties, Hui said, citing the volume of trade and Chinese investment in the East African country in 2011, when both increased two times compared with five years before. China is willing to strengthen coordination and cooperation with the Tanzanian side and continuously explore new ways of cooperation. China is willing to provide more aid and financial support to Tanzania while promoting cooperation between the enterprises of the two countries and improving the operation of established projects aided by China to further enhance the level of bilateral cooperation, he said. Hui said China thanked for Tanzania's support to the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation and hoped that Tanzania will benefit from the implementation of the outcomes of the Forum. China holds full confidence in bilateral cooperation and whishes Tanzania national prosperity and well-being of its people.

Pinda asked Hui to convey his cordial greetings and good wishes to Premier Wen Jiabao. Pinda said Tanzania is satisfied with the development of Tanzania-China relations. The Tanzanian prime minister expressed thanks to China for its assistance to national construction in his country for decades. He said the two countries enjoy mutual support in political and international issues and smooth development in trade and economic cooperation. Pinda hailed the success of the Fifth Ministerial Conference of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation held recently in Beijing, saying the new measures unveiled by Chinese President Hu Jintao are encouraging for countries attending the meeting. Tanzania has worked out its first five-year plan and perspective plan involving infrastructure, agriculture, social services and other sectors, he told the Chinese vice premier, hoping for more investments from China to tap the huge potential for bilateral cooperation.

After their talks, both officials attended the signing ceremony of cooperative agreements.

On September 6, Hui and his delegation visited and laid a wreath to the cemetery of Chinese experts dead during their assisting work in Tanzania. Hui also went to the Chinese Embassy in Tanzania to visit the embassy staff and representatives of Chinese-funded institutions and overseas Chinese.
