“The Johannesburg Summit left a mark in China-Africa relations. All those outcomes will be implemented in an honest manner. What we have achieved re-affirms the idea of mutual win-win cooperation,” Zhao said.
The summit, he said, showed strong unity and friendship between China and Africa.
“The feature of our cooperation is sincerity, mutual benefit and respect.”
The Ambassador stressed the need for strong pillars to support the comprehensive strategic relationship between China and Africa especially in Sierra Leone, saying both sides have agreed and shown political will and commitment to the Sino-Africa relationship.
“This cooperation will help in employment creation, food security and health development. China and Africa will work together to achieve the FOCAC Summit resolutions.”
He averred that China would not have achieved what they have without Africa and Africa would not be where they are without China.
Foreign Minister, Dr Samura Kamara ,during the celebration of the Chinese New Year said FOCAC is unique and valuable to promote cooperation. “By choosing China, Africa makes useful and positive arrangement … FOCAC is not a one-way relationship, it works both ways.”
He encouraged African countries to make conditions more favourable for investment and remove red tape in ensuring that prospective investors do not encounter problems in terms of legislation and doing business.
Dr. Samura Kamara said the Johannesburg FOCAC Summit last December has produced positive outcomes like the Johannesburg Declaration and Action Plan which will ensure compliance of the outcomes.
