The Head of State Paul Biya was in attendance this morning in China as the third summit of the China-Africa Forum opened this morning in Beijing.
Paul Biya who arrived in China on Friday will be hoping to reap big from the summit after meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on September 1.
Paul Biya and Xi Jinping held talks to strengthen the long-standing and excellent ties that exist between both countries, and strategising on the evolution of China’s Belt and Road Initiative.
As such, three draft agreements on the restructuring of Cameroon’s debt, judicial cooperation, and the emergency humanitarian assistance plan for the population of the North-West and South-West Regions were put on the table for signing after discussions.
Many other agreements are expected to be signed on the sidelines of the forum that brings together policy makers from China and Africa as well as Chinese and African business men.
This is Paul Biya’s seventh visit to the Peoples Republic of China in his drive to make Cameroon an emerging economy by 2035.
