The 3rd Forum on China-Africa Local Government Cooperation, sponsored by Chinese Peoples Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, was held from May 7 to 9 in Beijing. Kang Zhanping, Director-General of Ningxia Foreign Affairs Office (NXFAO) and Executive Vice Chairman of Ningxia Peoples Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, attended the forum with officials from General Office of Ningxia People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and Asian and African Affairs Division of NXFAO, promoting friendly exchanges between Ningxia and African countries via the platform of China-Africa cooperation.

Kang Zhanping and his delegation exchanged views with representatives of local governments in Africa, foreign diplomats in China, and representatives of several international organizations during formal meetings, themed discussions, and meeting breaks. They introduced the development and opening-up efforts of Ningxia, searched for topics of common interests, and discussed possibilities for future cooperation. This aroused interests among foreign attendants, who wished to establish ties with Ningxia and promote cooperation in related fields. Kang Zhanping also met with representatives from Antsiranana, Madagascar, and Bujumbura, Burundi, which had established friendly relations with Ningxia, exchanging views with them on enhancing friendship and extending cooperation.

The Forum on China-Africa Local Government Cooperation is under the framework of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation and an important platform for Chinese local governments to cooperate with Africa. With the help of this platform NXFAO initiated efforts to work with local governments in Africa, with a view to expanding Ningxias influence in Africa and consolidating exchanges and cooperation in various fields. This has promoted the opening-up drive of Ningxia significantly and served the Chinas overall diplomacy well.
