Beijing, Nov.18 (People's Daily Online) --China has become Africa's largest trading partner, with bilateral trade growing 28 percent per year from 2001 to 2010, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce said on Nov. 16.

China-Africa economic and trade relations have developed explosively in recent years, and their bilateral multi-level, multi-sector cooperation has been playing an irreplaceable role in the social and economic development of both sides.

An official from ministry said that China and African countries all belong to the developing world, and they share common experiences and development tasks.

As a sincere friend of Africa, China will adhere to the principle of equality, efficiency, mutual benefit and mutual prosperity in exchanging development experience with African countries. China will help enhance their capacity for self-development through investment and assistance in order to truly realize mutual prosperity.

This is not a suitable news items as it will only ignite frenzies in the US to redouble their effort to edge out China in Africa, by using hard power.
