After the Beijing Summit of the China-Africa Cooperation Forum held in Beijing in 2006, China Civil Engineering Construction Cooperation (CCECC) has devoted itself to the implementation of the action plan of the summit in the past three years.

Zhou Tianxiang, the deputy general manager of the CCECC, told Xinhua in a recent interview that from Algeria in North Africa to Southern Africa's Botswana, from Tanzania in East Africa to Nigeria in West Africa, CCECC's workers can be seen in various construction projects.

He said the company is playing an active role in the improvement of infrastructural conditions in Africa, defying high temperature, mosquito and malaria, water deficiency and altitude sickness.

According to him, CCECC is now engaged in Nigeria's light rail in the capital of Abuja, the reconstruction project of Apapa Port and some bridges and highways.

It is soon to build light rail in Lagos and modernized railways from Abuja to Kaduna and Lagos to Ibadan, the deputy director said.

He said the company is also engaged in the construction of expressways and express railways in Algeria and Libya.

He added that it has started civil service construction and housing construction projects as well as built highways in Tanzania and Botswana as well as in Uganda, Ruanda and Djibouti.

It is making blueprints for civil construction projects in the Sudan, Ghana and Angola, he said.

"We promise to fulfill all projects in high quality to the benefit of African countries and people and to contribute to the growth of China-Africa cooperation," Zhou told Xinhua.
