China presents proposals to enhance China-Africa trade ties

2008-04-01

China has put forward proposals to further intensify China-Africa cooperation especially in the economic and trade fields, a senior Communist Party of China (CPC) official said.

Li Changchun, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, made the proposals at a symposium of Chinese and Moroccan entrepreneurs here Thursday.

He suggested the two sides strengthen mutual trust and keep their eyes on the future, maintaining the good momentum of China-Africa economic and trade cooperation.

The two sides should maintain high-level exchange of visits and continue to strengthen exchanges in various fields and continuously enhance political mutual trust, he added.

Both sides should adhere to the spirits of "mutual benefit, reciprocity, equality and coordination," and consolidate the political foundation of the cooperation to ensure that the China-Africa economic and trade relations further develop in a "good and fast" way.

Li suggested strengthening guidance and increasing exchanges to create a more advantageous environment for the development of the economic and trade cooperation between China and Africa.

The guidance of the government should further be strengthened and personnel exchanges and the share of information between enterprises of China and Africa should be intensified, he added.

China will encourage the increase of imports from Africa and encourage more Chinese enterprises with good reputations, as well as strengthening investment in Africa, while encouraging more Chinese to tour Africa to enhance the income of African countries.

He urged both sides to give prominence to major points and create new ways to push forward rapid development of China-Africa economic cooperation.

The two sides should bring into full play the strong interrelationship of the two sides' economies, and perfect the trade structure between China and Africa and augment the volume of bilateral trade.

Chinese enterprises should engage in the economic and trade cooperation with Africa with first-class technology, products and services, and maintain the principles of fair competition and mutual benefit, the Chinese official said.

Chinese enterprises operating in Africa should endeavor to build up a good image of paying attention to reputation and quality and shoulder social responsibilities such as promoting employment, improving livelihoods, training personnel and protecting the environment, he said.

Morocco is the third leg of Li's five-nation tour, which has taken him to Algeria and Mauritania and will also take him to Tunisia and Syria.
