Ahead of his attendance at the China-Africa cooperation forum in Johannesburg, Chinese President Xi Jinping wrote an article for South African newspaper The Star, vowing further cooperation with the country and the whole of Africa.

Xi recalled the 17 years since both countries built diplomatic ties and evaluated the bilateral relationship as a great example mirroring China's cooperation with Africa, as well as other developing countries. He stated that the bilateral relations have entered their best era. He wrote that both countries share common views on many international affairs and have worked together closely in the global arena.

Trade volume has grown to 40 times that of 17 years ago, exceeding US$60 billion in 2014. China has become the largest trade partner of South Africa, while South Africa receives more investment from China than any other African country.

Other areas in which relations have developed include cultural and people exchanges. South Africa has the largest number of Chinese schools and Chinese students across the Africa.

Regarding the coming forum, Xi said China and Africa share a common destiny. He added that through cooperation, they can complement each other's advantages in many fields and bring real benefits to the people.
