 Xinhua News Agency: We noted that at the 13th meeting of the China-Africa Think Tanks Forum held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, Chinese and African scholars issued the Consensus Among African and Chinese Think Tanks on Deepening Global Development Cooperation, also called the Africa-China Dar es Salaam Consensus. This document represents a joint message from China and Africa in response to the risks and challenges facing the world. Could you share some comments and further information about the meeting?

 Wang Wenbin: The China-Africa Think Tanks Forum is an important sub-forum of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation. This year’s meeting had the participation of over 300 think tank scholars, business leaders and officials from China and 49 African countries. The scholars, under the guidance of the vision of building a community with a shared future for mankind, had in-depth discussions on the major issues and challenges facing the world, jointly put forth solutions and formed the Africa-China Dar es Salaam Consensus. The Consensus called on the international community to deepen development cooperation based on the principles of mutual respect, solidarity, win-win cooperation, openness, and common prosperity. It proposed that countries should uphold a people-centered development approach, and create a sound institutional environment that enables everyone to pursue a better life. It stressed that different civilizations should choose dialogue over conflicts, and different nations’ history, culture and traditions and the basic national conditions of each country need to be respected. It also supported countries in pursuing a path to modernization that meets their own development needs and has the distinctive features of their own culture. These ideas and suggestions reflect the vision and wisdom of the Chinese and African academia and deserve great attention.

  We agree with the suggestions proposed in the Africa-China Dar es Salaam Consensus. China always believes that the Global South, including China and Africa, has the right to share in the dividends of economic globalization, and gets the opportunities to accelerate self-driven development. The Global South needs to combine the role of efficient market and effective governance, improve the division of labor in the international industrial chain, help form more resilient global industrial and supply chains, and in this process, upgrade our industries and improve our industrial structures.

 This year is a big year for China-Africa cooperation. China stands ready to work with Africa to build an equal and orderly multi-polar world, invigorate and empower global economic growth through a universally beneficial and inclusive economic globalization, advance trade and investment liberalization and facilitation, promote reform of the international financial system, increase the representation and say of developing countries, open up new prospects for China-Africa common development and write a new chapter of building a China-Africa community with a shared future.
