Chinese Premier Li Keqiang arrived in Luanda Thursday for a visit aimed at further enhancing the strategic partnership between China and Angola.
Noting that Angola is an example of the fast growing African continent and an important cooperation partner of China in southwest Africa, the Chinese premier said he is looking forward to an in-depth exchange of views with Angolan leaders on bilateral issues and matters of common concern.
"China would like to expand and enrich its cooperation with Angola on the basis of existing achievements, so as to inject fresh impetus into the development of bilateral ties," he said.
During his stay, Li is scheduled to meet with Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos and hold a seminar with Chinese companies and overseas Chinese, according to the Foreign Ministry of China.
A number of agreements are expected to be signed between the two countries, their enterprises and financial institutions during Li's visit, Chinese Commerce Minister Gao Hucheng said.
"The signing of those agreements will be the biggest highlight of the visit," he said.
