BRI contributes to China-Africa anti-pandemic cooperation: white paper

BEIJING: China-Africa cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative has shown great resilience and vitality since the outbreak of COVID-19, helping anti-pandemic cooperation between the two sides, said a white paper released Friday.

According to the white paper titled “China and Africa in the New Era: A Partnership of Equals,” more than 1,100 China-Africa joint programs have continued, and nearly 100,000 Chinese technicians and workers have remained at their posts during the pandemic.

Under the combined efforts of the two sides, a number of major projects have been completed or seen progress, said the white paper.

Also, the Mombasa-Nairobi Railway and the Addis Ababa-Djibouti Railway have increased transport capacity in the face of adversity, making an important contribution to local efforts to fight COVID-19, safeguard lives, and rebuild the economy, the white paper noted.
