He told Pohamba, who is on his first China visit as SADC chairperson, that China is willing to take the opportunity of his visit to further cement friendly cooperation with the 15-member SADC.

Pohamba, who served as SADC chairman from August of 2010, spoke highly of Wu's successful visit to Namibia as well as his important speech at the first Africa-China Young Leaders Forum.

Calling China a great country, he said southern African countries including Namibia attach great importance to ties with China, and believed their win-win cooperation with China would help their own development.

His current visit aims to further lift friendly cooperation with China up to a higher stage, he added.

Pohamba arrived in Beijing on Friday for a three-day trip. He launched a China-SADC business forum together with Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan earlier on Saturday. Chinese President Hu Jintao is scheduled to meet with him on Sunday.

The SADC is an inter-governmental organization with the goal of furthering socioeconomic cooperation and integration among 15 southern African states.
