The Beijing Summit of the China-Africa Cooperation Forum in 2018 will be held from September 3rd to 4th. The leaders of China and Africa will focus on the theme of the summit of "cooperation and win-win, work together to build a closer community of fate between China and Africa", share friendship, discuss cooperation and talk about the future.
This is another great reunion of the China-Africa friendship family. It is also the largest home diplomacy hosted by China this year. At that time, leaders of many African countries and the chairman of the AU Commission will lead the delegation. The UN Secretary-General as a special guest and 27 international and African regional organizations will also attend the summit activities as observers.
Since the establishment of the China-Africa Cooperation Forum in the past 18 years, the China-Africa cooperation under the framework of the Forum has achieved remarkable results and the results are obvious to all. The holding of the Beijing Summit of the Forum is a consistent requirement for China and Africa to comprehensively deepen China-Africa friendship and cooperation and actively respond to global challenges. It is also the proper meaning of China's implementation of Xi Jinping's diplomatic thinking, the practice of true and sincere ideas and the correct concept of righteousness and interests.
I look forward to the Beijing Summit to launch a new call to build a closer community of fate between China and Africa, to write a new movement for the development of Africa in the "Belt and Road", and to formulate a new path for China-Africa cooperation to move toward a higher level, playing the hearts of the people of China and Africa. Such as the new melody of a family, establish a new historical monument of friendship and cooperation between China and Africa.
