Visiting Chinese Premier Li Keqiang delivered a speech on May 5 in the Africa Union Headquarters Center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, proposing a new 4-6-1 cooperative mode between China and Africa. This mode includes:
Four principles: To further consolidate bilateral cooperation, the two sides uphold the four principles of treating each other sincerely and equally; consolidating solidarity and mutual trust; jointly pursuing inclusive development; and promoting innovation in bilateral practical cooperation.
Six key areas: Six areas—industry, finance, poverty reduction, ecological protection, people-to-people exchanges, and peace and security—have been identified for the two sides to make the leap forward.
One platform: As the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation serves as an important platform for deepening bilateral relations, joint efforts should be made to turn it into a more pragmatic and efficient mechanism.
