Chinese top legislator Wu Bang-guo has addressed Chinese and South African business communities during his visit to South Africa.

Wu, chairman of the National People's Congress Standing Committee, said deeper business cooperation between China and South Africa not only serves the fundamental interests of the two peoples, but also helps strengthen solidarity and cooperation among all developing countries. He notes that with South Africa becoming a new member of BRICS, there is now a new platform for both countries to deepen their bilateral cooperation. He made three proposals on the enhancement of investment cooperation, expanding cooperation areas between the two countries and further improvement of the cooperative environment.

Wu Bangguo arrived in Pre-toria Tuesday evening, visiting as a guest of the Speaker of the South African National Assembly, Max Si-sulu. South Africa is the third leg of Wu Bang-guo's 4-nation Africa-Asia tour which has already taken him to Namibia and Angola.
