2015/12/05

On December 4 local time, President Xi Jinping met in Johannesburg with President Hage Geingob of Namibia.

Xi Jinping pointed out that Namibia is an important partner of China in Africa. The traditional friendship forged by older generations of leaders of both countries is a valuable treasure for us. The Chinese side is willing to, together with the Namibian side, transfer the bilateral friendship into more driving forces for cooperation and development. Both sides should enhance political mutual trust, strengthen exchanges in all areas and deepen practical cooperation. We encourage Chinese enterprises to actively participate in infrastructure construction and operation of transportation, ports and others in Namibia so as to help its economic and social development. Both sides should also expand communication and cooperation in culture, education, youth, media, tourism and other areas to consolidate the social and public opinion foundation for bilateral friendship. China is willing to keep close collaboration with Namibia in international affairs so as to protect the common interests and rights of developing countries.

Hage Geingob noted that Namibia and China enjoy a long-standing friendship. China offered valuable support to Namibia in its national independence and development. Under the new situation, the Namibian side is willing to strengthen cooperation with the Chinese side in infrastructure construction, agriculture, new energy development and other areas.

Wang Huning, Li Zhanshu, Yang Jiechi and others attended the meeting.
