In the morning of July 13, 2012, the Forum on China-Africa Financial Cooperation hosted by the Export-Import Bank of China opened in Beijing. More than 400 delegates attended the event, including State Councilor Dai Bingguo, former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo, former President of Mozambique Joaquim Alberto Chissano, officials of relevant government departments and representatives of the financial institutions and academia of China and Africa. Vice Foreign Minister Zhai Jun attended the opening ceremony and delivered a speech.

Zhai in his speech introduced China-Africa relations and the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC). He said that the Forum on China-Africa Financial Cooperation is the natural result of the increasingly close economic ties and thriving financial cooperation between China and Africa and builds a new platform for the economic sectors, financial institutions and businesses of both sides to deepen exchanges and cooperation. He hopes that the two sides through this event enhance mutual understanding, learn from each other's development experience, strengthen pragmatic cooperation, achieve more fruitful results of financial cooperation and promote mutual benefit and common development.

Later, Zhai received an interview of CCTV on how to further develop the China-Africa relations under the influence of the current situation in West Asia and North Africa.
