Li Zhaozhuo, vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), will head a high-level delegation to Rwanda this month to boost friendly and cooperative ties between the two countries.

According to a statement released by Rwanda's Senate on Tuesday, the three-day visit will begin on Feb. 18 and is to strengthen regular contacts between Rwandan and Chinese parliamentary chambers on a number of issues and review bilateral projects.

Chinese Ambassador to Rwanda Shu Zhan has confirmed that the official delegation from China is "planning an outreach visit" to Rwanda.

After a meeting with the Chinese envoy to Rwanda on Tuesday, the president of Rwanda's Senate, Vincent Biruta, said his country's legislative chambers would continue to promote friendly ties with the CPPCC and play a "constructive role" in promoting bilateral cooperation.

Rwanda have received training assistance from China in the applications of information communication technology (ICT) in parliaments.

The Central African nation has a long-standing bilateral relationship with China in a number of socio-economic areas such as infrastructure, energy, education, health, agriculture and communications.
