Chinese premier

vows support 

for Zimbabwe, Africa



By Hao Yalin


Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Tuesday of August 26 promised visiting Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe that China will continue to support the development of Zimbabwe and Africa as a whole.

In the two leaders’ meeting, Li said that China will transfer technologies adapted to Zimbabwe, help it increase food supply, promote poverty reduction and construct infrastructure, and cooperate on personnel training to boost the country’s production and national development.

He also expressed willingness to consolidate political mutual trust with Zimbabwe.

Li said China will “actively support” the proposal of African Union Commission Chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to construct high-speed railways connecting capitals and major business centers of African countries, and will help Africa’s industrialization process.

Mugabe thanked China for the support and pledged to continue to strengthen the two countries’ mutual trust and friendship.

He also vowed to expand bilateral cooperation, and to enhance the two sides’ communication and coordination on global and regional affairs.

Zimbabwe welcomes more Chinese companies and tourists and will facilitate such arrivals, Mugabe said.

Li also briefed the Zimbabwean president on China’s economic development.

“We have not adopted a strong stimulation policy, but motivate social vitality and business start-ups through reform,” he explained, arguing that the toughness and development potential of China’s economy will become more obvious with the deepening of reform.

“We have confidence in the economy maintaining medium-to-high growth,” Li said.

Mugabe is visiting China from August 24-28.

Top Chinese legislator meets Mugabe

Top Chinese legislator Zhang Dejiang on Tuesday of August 26 met with visiting Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, pledging to enhance bilateral parliamentary cooperation.

Zhang, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC), the country’s top legislature, praised the contribution 90-year-old Mugabe made to Zimbabwean independence and development.

He reviewed the growth of China-Zimbabwe relations since the two countries forged diplomatic ties in 1980, hailing the important role played by Mugabe and the older generations of Chinese leaders.

China and Zimbabwe should safeguard and develop their friendship, which is a shared treasure of the two countries, according to Zhang.

He said China would like to work with Zimbabwe to implement the consensuses reached by the leaders of the two countries, deepen mutually beneficial cooperation and work for the benefit of the two peoples.

Mugabe is mid-way through a five-day China tour that began in Beijing on Sunday. Chinese President Xi Jinping held talks with him on Monday and witnessed the signing of cooperation deals covering food, finance and tourism.

On parliamentary collaboration, Zhang said the NPC would like to work more closely with the Zimbabwean parliament to enhance political trust, share more experience on state governance, and “inject new substance into bilateral relations” by encouraging foreign investment and special business zones.

Mugabe, who is on his 13th visit to China, said Zimbabwe cherishes its long friendship with China, appreciates its support and hopes for stronger trade collaboration with China.

Earlier Tuesday, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang also met with Mugabe.

Mugabe will also visit the northwestern province of Shaanxi and southern province of Guangdong on his tour.
