Xi in S. Africa for state visit, BRICS summit
    2018-07-25  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

SOUTH AFRICA rolled out the red carpet for President Xi Jinping on Monday as he started his third state visit to the “rainbow nation” with the aim of boosting bilateral friendly relations and cooperation.

Upon arrival, Xi said that in the past 20 years, China-South Africa relations have developed in an all-round and in-depth way, leaping from a partnership to a strategic partnership and then to a comprehensive strategic partnership.

The two countries have witnessed increasing political mutual trust, practical cooperation, people-to-people exchanges and strategic coordination, Xi said.

At present, China is South Africa’s largest trading partner and South Africa is China’s largest trading partner in Africa, according to Chinese official statistics.

“I look forward to having an in-depth exchange of views with President Ramaphosa on bilateral relations, the Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, as well as international and regional issues of common concern, so as to jointly elevate China-South Africa relations to a new high in the new era and bring greater benefits to our two peoples,” Xi said.

Xi is also scheduled to attend the 10th BRICS summit that will be held from today to Friday in Johannesburg.

BRICS gathers the world’s five major emerging economies — Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

Xi will attend the BRICS Business Forum, leaders’ meetings, and an informal meeting to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the BRICS summit mechanism. He will also hold bilateral meetings with leaders of other countries on the sidelines of the summit.
