Xi Jinping Sends a Congratulatory Letter on the 33rd African Union (AU) Summit

On February 9, 2020, President Xi Jinping sent a letter to warmly congratulate African countries and their people on the holding of the 33rd African Union (AU) Summit in Addis Ababa, capital of Ethiopia.

Xi Jinping noted, since the beginning of last year, under the guidance of the AU, African countries have actively explored development paths suited to their own conditions and adhered to dealing with African affairs in African ways. With the official launch of the African Continental Free Trade Area, Africa has made solid progress in its unity and self-improvement and its global influence has increasingly grown.

Xi Jinping stressed, the China-Africa relationship is currently at its best in history. The Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) led to a new wave in developing the China-Africa friendship, with the implementation of its results injecting new vigor into bilateral practical cooperation in various fields. As the world is encountering profound changes unseen in a century, jointly building an even closer China-Africa community with a shared future is in the common interests of the Chinese and African peoples. The Chinese side will continue adhering to the principles of sincerity, real results, affinity and good faith and the right approach to justice and interests, push for a comprehensive implementation of the results of the FOCAC Beijing Summit, and accelerate our joint efforts to build the Belt and Road Initiative, so as to make greater contributions to Africa's development and to the benefit of both peoples.
