The visit brought fresh opportunities for Chinese enterprises to increase investment in Africa, said Li Guanghui, vice president of the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation.

During the visit, which ended on Sunday, Li announced to upgrade China-Africa economic cooperation, highlighting six areas including industry, finance, poverty reduction, ecological protection, cultural exchange and peace and security.
