ANC strengthens ties with China

2011-04-06 13:12

The ANC’s Progressive Business Forum met the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade to strengthen trade ties between the two countries, the Progressive Business Forum said today.

“The China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, with more than 300 000 companies as members across the length and breadth of China, agreed to co-operate with the Progressive Business Forum in specific areas of trade promotion, including the co-ordination of South African participation in a number of trade exhibitions and fairs in China, as well as the facilitation and enhancement of trade delegation visits between the two countries,” read a statement from the Progressive Business Forum.

“Both sides undertook to spare no effort to ensure their work was co-ordinated and unified to the benefit of both countries and its people.”

This would be done by private sector trade delegations from each country visiting the other and acting as “conduits” to establish contacts between South Africa and Chinese enterprises wanting to trade in the two countries.
