[Media Reports] Africans in China React to Xi’s Visit to Africa

A Global Times report on how some ‘African community’ leaders in China think of Sino-African relations.

“African communities in China are already speaking highly of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s upcoming trip to Africa.
“Xi’s visit shows Chinese leaders’ vision regarding Africa, and their willingness to work with Africa,” said John Rwehumbiza, president of the Tanzania Community in China.

He said Xi’s visit will further cement bilateral relations and boost them to a new level.

Xi left Beijing Friday morning for state visits to Russia, Tanzania, South Africa and the Republic of Congo. He is scheduled to attend the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) summit on March 26 and 27 in South Africa.

Felly Mwamba, chief representative of African Business Freight, said the new Chinese leadership has given him the impression of being hardworking and reform-minded. “I think they will bring a new light and new mind to Africa-China relations.”
