Chinese president meets Chinese, Nigerian businessmen 862 words 28 April 2006 10:57 AM BBC Monitoring Africa BBCAP English (c) 2006 The British Broadcasting Corporation. All Rights Reserved. No material may be reproduced except with the express permission of The British Broadcasting Corporation. Text of report entitled: "Hu Jintao meets Chinese, Nigerian entrepreneurs' representatives", carried by official Chinese news agency Xinhua (New China News Agency) Abuja, 27 April: In the Nigerian capital of Abuja, President Hu Jintao met with representatives of Chinese and Nigerian entrepreneurs on the 27th. During the meeting, Hu Jintao pointed out: China is the largest developing country in the world, while Nigeria is an important developing country in Africa. Strengthening mutually beneficial cooperation between the two countries not only accords with both sides' mutual interests but also is conducive to world economic development. At 0930 hours local time Hu Jintao went to the conference hall of the hotel where he was staying and cordially shook hands with Chinese and Nigerian entrepreneurs' representatives and Nigerian government officials who were there awaiting his arrival. Afterwards Hu Jintao had an informal discussion with them on expanding the two countries' economic and trade cooperation. Lian Mingxiang, general manager of the China Petrochemical (Group) Corporation's Nigeria-registered company; Rufay [name as transliterated], manager of the ChinaNigeria cooperative communications satellite project under Nigeria's space administration; and Zhou Tianxiang, general manager of the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation Group's Nigeria-registered company, spoke one after another. They gave accounts of how they were respectively doing in relevant China-Nigeria economic cooperation projects. Rufay thanked President Hu Jintao for his concern and support for strengthening Nigerian-Chinese economic and trade cooperation and indicated that he would properly complete the cooperative project with the Chinese side by making great efforts in cooperating with them. After hearing their accounts, Hu Jintao made a speech. He first extended sincere greetings to all the friends among the two countries' industrial and commercial circles who made positive contributions to developing Sino-Nigerian economic and trade relations. He said: In the 35 years since we established diplomatic relations, bilateral relations developed comprehensively and economic and trade cooperation saw remarkable successes. Over the past five years the volume of Sino-Nigerian bilateral trade increased to nearly 3bn dollars from 1bn dollars. China and Nigeria already are each other's important partners in economic and trade cooperation. Sino-Nigerian economic and trade cooperation is developing towards an even higher level and even more wide-ranging fields and the two countries have increasingly close cooperation in the investment field. Mutually beneficial cooperation between the two sides has brought material benefits to the two peoples as well as injected vigour into the development of the two countries' relations. Page 4 of 379 © 2009 Factiva, Inc. All rights reserved. Hu Jintao indicated: To lift Sino-Nigerian economic and trade cooperation to an even higher level, I am making three suggestions: First, we should enlarge the scale of trade and optimize the trade composition. China has a population of 1.3bn and great market potential, while Nigeria, with its population of 130m, also is a large market. Sino-Nigerian trade has tremendous potential; provided enterprises on both sides give play to their own advantages and come up with competitive products, they will have every ability to complement each other in advantage. The Chinese side is willing to take positive measures to facilitate even more Nigerian products' entry into the Chinese market. Second, we should promote reciprocal investment and strengthen cooperation in the fields of telecommunications, electric power, and infrastructure. The Chinese side will continue to promote investment and business initiation in Nigeria by enterprises with strength and encourage Chinese enterprises to carry out, in various forms, cooperation with their Nigerian counterparts and help Nigeria improve its capability of independent development by strengthening the transfer of technology and training of personnel amid cooperation. The Chinese side also welcomes Nigerian enterprises' investment in China. We encourage financial institutions on both sides to strengthen cooperation to provide strong support for the enterprises' investment activities. Third, we should broaden and deepen the two countries' cooperation in the energy field. There are very broad prospects for Sino-Nigerian cooperation in the energy field and the Chinese side supports Chinese enterprises in deepening and broadening cooperation with their Nigerian counterparts in this field. In conclusion, Hu Jintao said: Enterprises are the mainstay of the market as well as bilateral economic and trade cooperation. Constant development of Sino-Nigerian economic and trade cooperation depends on the joint efforts of entrepreneurs on both sides. I hope the entrepreneurs will seize the opportunity and dare to blaze new trails to make new, even greater contributions to China and Nigeria's common development and prosperity. Hu Jintao's speech evoked positive echoes among the Chinese and Nigerian entrepreneurs' representatives. The entrepreneurs' representatives from both countries indicated that they would try hard to open a new prospect of mutual benefits and gains for Sino-Nigerian economic and trade cooperation by catching firm hold of the historical opportunity for SinoNigerian economic and trade development and making full use of the advantage of a high complementariness in the two countries' economic and trade cooperation. Soon afterward Hu Jintao cordially received functionaries of the Chinese embassy in Nigeria and representatives of Chinese-funded enterprises, overseas Chinese, and ethnic Chinese.

National/Foreign CHINA FIRMS TIES WITH AFRICA ; BEIJING SIGNS BUSINESS DEALS WITH NIGERIA Dulue Mbachu, Associated Press 587 words 28 April 2006 The Boston Globe BSTNGB THIRD A13 English © 2006 New York Times Company. Provided by ProQuest Information and Learning. All Rights Reserved. ABUJA, Nigeria President Hu Jintao of China said yesterday his government will seek closer ties with Africa a resource-rich frontier for the world's fastest growing economy after signing a series of major business deals with oil-rich Nigeria. Hu, on the second and final day visiting Africa's largest oil producer before heading to Kenya, said China is seeking "a strategic partnership" with the continent that would improve living standards for Africa. Hu and Nigeria's president, Olusegun Obasanjo, signed an agreement Wednesday requiring Nigeria's petroleum ministry to give China's state oil firm preferential access to four blocks of oil exploration rights in return for China taking over a money-losing refinery in the city of Kaduna. China also agreed to build a hydroelectric power station in the northeastern Mambilla plateau and a fast-rail system linking the capital, Abuja, with the economic capital, Lagos. And two Chinese telecommunication firms will install rural telephone service across large swathes of Nigeria with the help of Chinese government loans worth more than $200 million. China's interest and growing profile in Africa has worried Western rivals for the continent's resources and markets. And some Africans have complained about being flooded with cheap Chinese goods. Nigeria is the top African producer of crude and the seventh- largest in the world,...
