BEIJING, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday met the press together with South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and Senegalese President Macky Sall, former and new African co-chair of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC).

Xi first made the announcement that the 2018 FOCAC Beijing Summit has come to a successful conclusion.

The summit has published the Beijing Declaration -- Toward an Even Stronger China-Africa Community with a Shared Future, which crystalized consensus of China and Africa on current major international and regional issues, and sent the world a strong signal of the two sides going forward hand in hand, Xi said.

The FOCAC Beijing Action Plan (2019-2021) was also adopted at the summit to confirm that China and Africa will comprehensively enhance pragmatic cooperation focusing on the implementation of the eight major initiatives, Xi said.
