Africa, China cooperation a win-win formula: Rwandan minister


08:17, July 18, 2012

ADDIS ABABA, July 17 (Xinhua) -- Cooperation between Africa and China had been following a win-win formula, Rwandan Foreign Minister Louise Mushikiwabo said Monday.

Mushikiwabo spoke to Xinhua here in the Ethiopian capital ahead of the fifth ministerial conference of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), to be held later this week in Beijing.

She said the meeting provided an opportunity to renew the "special" ties between Africa and China.

"We (Rwanda) are offering Chinese investors a good environment to do business," she said, adding the country also served as "a very good entry point into the EAC (East Africa Community) market, giving China an opportunity to have access to five countries instead of one."

Mushikiwabo said China-Africa relations should bring benefits to both Africa and China.

"China is a model for Africa and for many countries all over the world in terms of the spectacular progress in its economy in only a few years," the minister said.

"We (Africa) intend to take full advantage of China's general support to African countries and to continue to show our special friendship with China in different forums," she said.
