Nigeria’s  Consul General In Shanghai Ogu Seeks Stronger Bilateral Relations Between Africa And China

The Consul General, Consulate General of Nigeria in Shanghai, Mr Chimezie Ogu, has asked China to carry Africa along as a trusted alley in all its bilateral and multilateral engagements in world politics.

 

The Consul General who was speaking at the Jiangsu-Africa Cooperation Conference and China Africa Local Government Cooperation Forum, FOCAC, in Nantong China, said, this year’s theme: “unity and cooperation, seek common development and work together to build a closer China-Africa community with a shared future” is timely and needs attention of both sides to thrive.

 

He said China-Africa cooperation has lasted over decades and Africa with over seven hundred million people has remained a reliable friend and partner of China, only next to India as major trading partner adding that China had done well within the platform of FOCAC which led to cooperation, building of unity and understanding between both sides of which Africa as a continent benefited and appreciates.

 

He however, emphasised that there are gaps that must be closed by both sides, to increase their mutual interaction in the area of business investment and enjoined the Government of Jiangsu Province and businessmen to increase their presence by investing more in the African continent in what he termed a win-win cooperation.

 

Mr Ogu, said honesty and sincerity are the essential ingredients needed in the growth and progress of friendly countries with shared values, visions and expectations as such, even though Africa needs China in its quest for development, China should be aware it also needs Africa’s support in the area of global politics with the United Nations.
