GUANGZHOU, July 23 (Xinhua) -- Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Amollo Odinga on Monday said Africa-China cooperation creates a win-win situation.

In both political and economic fields, many African countries are experiencing a period of transformation, and China's assistance to those countries is timely and valuable, Odinga told Xinhua in an interview in Guangzhou, the last stop of his China tour.

China is not exploiting Africa but assisting Africa's transformation, which is creating a win-win situation and will not block cooperation between Africa and other countries, Odinga said.

He welcomed Chinese companies to help in the construction of Africa's infrastructure which is "key to the opening-up of Africa's economy and investment."

Highlighting his country's booming tourist industry, Odinga also invited Chinese tourists and investors to tap the market.

According to Odinga, Kenya is to build a transport network connecting Ethiopia, South Sudan and his country's port of Lamu, which will include a pipeline, oil refinery, road network and railway.

He encouraged Chinese companies to bid for the projects and achieve mutual benefits.

Odinga attended the Fifth Ministerial Conference of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation in Beijing on Thursday.
