Zambian President Rupiah Banda concluded his nine-day state visit to China and left for home Thursday evening.

When meeting with Wang Rong, acting mayor of Shenzhen city of south China's Guangdong Province, Banda Wednesday said China's development experience was significant to Zambia, highlighting Shenzhen's transition from a small village to a metropolitan.

Banda said Zambia and China had conducted cooperation in medical treatment and the mining industry. He would further facilitate the cooperation back in Zambia.

Banda also hoped more Chinese people would visit Zambia, which could strengthen their friendship with the Zambian people.

During Banda's earlier stay in Beijing, Chinese President Hu Jintao held talks with him. Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress Wu Bangguo, and Premier Wen Jiabao also met with him.

Banda also visited south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and Guangdong Province.

As the guest of Hu, it was Banda's first trip to China since being elected president in 2008.
