Visiting Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his DRC counterpart Marie Tumba Nzeza signed the MoU between the two governments after their talks earlier in Kinshasa.

Wang said the BRI is an important international cooperation initiative and is committed to promoting economic complementarity among countries, synergizing development strategies, forming joint development efforts, and realizing common development and prosperity.

At present, China has signed BRI cooperation documents with 44 African countries, Wang said, adding that China welcomes the DRC as its 45th partner in Africa in BRI cooperation.

Wang said the signing of the MoU by the two sides will send a positive signal to the world that China and DRC are committed to common development and prosperity.

It will also drive economic cooperation between the two countries, create a stronger momentum for mutually beneficial cooperation, and open up broader prospects for bilateral relations. Enditem
