Chinese President Hu Jintao arrived Monday in Port Louis, Mauritian capital for a state visit aimed at enhancing bilateral friendship and cooperation.

He was greeted at the airport by Mauritian Prime Minister Navinchandra Ramgoolam.

"The China-Mauritius relationship has become a model of solidarity and cooperation between two developing countries," Hu said in a statement released upon his arrival.

His visit will enhance mutual understanding and trust, deepen the traditional friendship and promote mutually beneficial cooperation between China and Mauritius, said the Chinese president.

It will also help take China-Mauritius relations to a new high, Hu added.

During the visit, the last leg of his five-nation "journey of friendship and cooperation," Hu is expected to meet with Mauritian President Anerood Jugnauth and hold talks with Ramgoolam.

The two countries will sign a number of cooperation documents during Hu's two-day visit.

He left Dar es Salaam earlier Monday after wrapping up a state visit to Tanzania.

Also on Monday, Hu delivered a key-note speech on China-Africa ties at a welcoming rally attended by people from various sectors in Tanzania.

In his speech, Hu reaffirmed that the Chinese people have always cherished the traditional friendship with Africa and will continue to do so in the future.

"We will always view African people as our all-weather friends whom we can fully trust and count on. We will forever remain good brothers and good partners of the African people," he said.

He also made a six-point proposal on further strengthening relations with African nations:

-- First, strengthen solidarity and mutual assistance to jointly meet the challenge of the international financial crisis.

-- Second, enhance mutual trust and cement the political foundation for traditional friendship.

-- Third, raise the level of practical economic and trade cooperation on the basis of reciprocity and mutual benefit.

-- Fourth, expand people-to-people exchanges and deepen cultural cooperation.

-- Fifth, work closely together and strengthen coordination in international affairs.

-- Sixth, enhance coordination and jointly promote the further development of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation.

The week-long tour, Hu's first overseas trip in 2009, has also taken him to Saudi Arabia, Mali and Senegal.
