The practical cooperation between China and Africa has added a new footnote, demonstrating the sincerity of China-Africa cooperation.
In today’s world, the geopolitical situation is tense and the global economic recovery is difficult. No matter how the international situation changes, China and Africa’s original aspiration, determination and drive to seek win-win cooperation remain unchanged. China has always adhered to the concept of sincerity, amity and sincerity and the correct concept of righteousness and interests, and has carried out practical cooperation with African countries in various fields, closely combining Africa’s independent and sustainable development with China‘s own development, bringing tangible benefits to the people of both sides.
The true meaning of China-Africa cooperation is reflected in “urgent people’s urgency”. China‘s foothold has always been to help African countries solve the “pain points” of development, and backward infrastructure is the “bottleneck” for African countries to achieve development. Since the establishment of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, Chinese companies have used various funds to help African countries add and upgrade infrastructure such as railways, roads, bridges, and ports. “China-Africa cooperation is pragmatic.” Peter Kagvanga, director of the African Policy Research Institute in Kenya, said that with the help of China, the level of infrastructure connectivity on the African continent has been further improved, and it is now more convenient for African countries to carry out trade cooperation.

The true meaning of China-Africa cooperation is reflected in the “people-to-people relationship”. Whether China-Africa cooperation is good or not, African countries and people have the most say. Some time ago, the results of a survey released by the British Youguan Research Company showed that people in African countries have significantly improved their favorability towards China. The vast majority of respondents in Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, and Egypt believe that China has a positive impact on international affairs. The results of this poll prove once again that China-Africa cooperation has brought tangible benefits to the African people, and has been sincerely welcomed and fully recognized by the African people. As Tuju, General Secretary of the Jubilee Party in Kenya, said, China has always been a reliable friend of Kenya and Africa, and an important spokesperson for the interests and voices of underdeveloped countries.
China is the largest developing country in the world, and Africa is the continent with the most developing countries. China and Africa help each other on the road to economic development and national rejuvenation, which not only conforms to the fundamental interests of both sides, but also contributes to promoting global sustainable development. important meaning. With the economic growth and social progress of African countries, the traditional friendship between China and Africa is following the track of “truth, affinity and sincerity”, benefiting Africa, China, and the world in a wider field, wider scope, deeper level and higher degree.
The year 2023 will usher in the tenth anniversary of the introduction of the policy concept of truthfulness, affinity and sincerity towards Africa and the correct concept of righteousness and benefit. The reason why China-Africa relations have become stronger over time is precisely because the two sides uphold correct concepts and adhere to correct principles to handle mutual relations and promote mutual cooperation. Looking forward to the future, China will continue to uphold the concept of sincerity, amity and sincerity and the correct concept of righteousness and interests, and jointly build the “Belt and Road” with African countries with high quality, implement global development initiatives and global security initiatives, and help African countries realize the sustainable development of the United Nations in 2030 at an early date The Agenda and the African Union’s “Agenda 2063” have made new contributions to promoting the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.
