“I call on China to support Africa’s economic integration efforts, because an integrated African economy will be a better partner for China’s desire for a win-win prosperity than fragmented ones that incur so many losses for everyone,” said President Chakwera.

President Chakwera stated that African countries have not gathered in China to ask for charity but to explore trade opportunities for a prosperous future.

He said: “Those of us from Africa have gathered here with dignity, not beggars, but as traders, for our desire in our relationship with any other country is to come as partners seeking our righful stake in the prosperous future.”

President Chakwera’s voice is the African voice, for he is the Guest of Honour at the Expo.The Trade Expo will run from 29 June to 2 July.
