The fifth ministerial conference of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation is being held in Beijing on Thursday and Friday. Chinese president Hu Jintao and leaders from African countries will attend the opening ceremony.

Since 2009, China has been Africa’s largest trading partner. Two-way trade volume surpassed 166 billion US dollars in 2011. Over the past decade, the China-Africa cooperation has seen major improvements, and new measures to strengthen cooperation with Africa are also expected to be announced at this year’s forum.
