Shanghai Party Secretary Li Qiang met Roch Marc Kabore, president of Burkina Faso, and his delegation on Wednesday.

Li welcomed Kabore on behalf of the Shanghai Government and he said with the efforts from the top leaders of both countries, China and Burkina Faso resumed diplomatic relations in May.

China admires Kabore’s resolution to resume the diplomatic relations. The current state visit and Kabore’s fruitful meeting with President Xi Jinping have ushered in a new era of Sino-Burkina Faso relations.

As China’s biggest economic center, Shanghai is accelerating the process of building its “five centers” as well as building itself into a globally influential modern metropolis.

China is willing to work with Burkina Faso and carry out the consensus reached by the top leaders of both countries; strengthen the national and regional exchanges and overall cooperation; share business opportunities; and bring real benefits to the people in both countries, Li added.

Kabore said the resumption of the diplomatic relations with China fits Burkina Faso’s future development trajectory. The two countries’ development goals are aligned so their cooperation will produce fruitful results.

Shanghai is a modern metropolis and it has social and economic vitality as well as organized urban management mechanisms.

Burkina Faso hopes to strengthen the cooperation in trade and other industries with Shanghai to achieve win-win results for both countries, Kabore added.

Li Jian, charge d’affairs of China’s embassy in Burkina Faso; Zhuge Yujie, secretary-general of the CPC Shanghai Committee; and Xu Kunlin, vice mayor of Shanghai, also attended the meeting.
