Foreign Minister Wang Yi says, as a good friend of Africa, China understands and supports its desire to speed up industrialisation. He says China has the will and capability to help with this process. 

Wang Yi made the statement at a press conference Saturday with his South African counterpart Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, marking the end of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation in Johannesburg. 

Wang said after achieving political independence, African countries now need economic independence and to develop their own industrial systems as soon as possible. He added that China will strengthen cooperation with Africa on the basis of non-interference in African countries' internal affairs and equal consultations. China has many ties in production capacity with African countries, including Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and South Africa. Industry has also been prioritized in the newly announced ten cooperation programs. 

Wang said:"After decades of industrialization, China has accumulated a large amount of high-quality capacity, mature technology and necessary financial support. China's capacity and technology, in particular, suit well the current development needs of African countries. China can provide high quality and inexpensive goods and technology. So we are willing and qualified to make ourself Africa's ideal partner in its industrialization."
