CHINESE Vice President Li Yuanchao arrives in Zambia tomorrow for a four-day state visit.

Outgoing Chinese ambassador to Zambia, Zhou Yuxiao said at a press briefing in Lusaka that Dr Li would be in Zambia from June 18 to June 21, 2014.

Dr Li, who would be in the country at the invitation of his Zambian counterpart, Dr Guy Scott, will be accompanied by a 21 man entourage, among them senior officials from the Chinese Government and the Chinese Communist party.

Mr Zhou said Dr Li’s four-day visit was to reciprocate the Zambian Government officials’ visits to China and afford the Chinese Government an opportunity to celebrate Zambia’s 50 years golden jubilee and the 50 years of cooperation between the two countries.

He said Dr Li’s visit would greatly promote relations between Zambia and China.

“China is trying to further enhance its cooperation with Africa and we have been paying great attention to Zambia as well in almost all areas of development,” he said.

He said during his visit, Dr Li would sign eight agreements on Chinese grants and loans to Zambia and have an audience with President Michael Sata.

Dr Li would also hold bilateral talks with his counterpart, Dr Scott and have a working meeting with Patriotic Front (PF) secretary general, Wynter Kabimba.

He would also pay a courtesy call on first republican President, Dr Kenneth Kaunda and visit an ordinary Zambian family as well as tour some developmental projects in and around Lusaka.

Mr Zhou said other projects to be considered by Dr Li were grants to be given to Zambia, borehole drilling, Levy Mwanawasa hospital expansion, Kenneth Kaunda International Airport and the cooperation in wild animal and forest cooperation.

He said China wanted to assist Zambia with its road network, health sector and energy sector.

Mr Zhou said China was also contemplating assisting Zambia with more mobile hospitals.

China was also interested in assisting Zambia work on the Batoka hydro-power generating station.

“Zambia has a huge potential and we are happy to work with the country,” Mr Zhou said.

He said China was happy to be associated with Zambia’s development and congratulated the Zambian Government for completing huge projects with the assistance from the Chinese Government.

Meanwhile, Mr Zhou has urged Journalists to uphold objectivity and report factually.

Mr Zhou who thanked the Zambian Journalists for the cooperation he had continued to receive from them in the last three years he had been in Zambia said it was important that Journalists remained factual in their reporting.

    • @ humanity

      since in your world telling someone to engage in masturbation is not an insult or being disrespectful, i suggest that you ask your mother to masturbate many times before she meets your wife.

      i am sure she (your mother) will gladly oblige and even do it in your presence

  6. They have come to see where they rip the country disguised under bilateral agreements.
    Rhinos and elephants in east are depleting at alarming speed encouraging illegal poaching. And surely would you give the Chinese to manage tourism and game reserves?

  7. CHINESE Vice President Li Yuanchao arrives in Zambia your warmly welcomed
    But many Chines project s in African countries are not performing well including TAZARA we do advice to take serious measures to rescue the TAZARA performance including repair of TAZARA line and payment of TAZARA workers dues and pending four months salaries year 2014

  8. My view on China in Africa is,
    think West, think East,
    what exactly was the legacy left from centuries of European colonialism ?
    versus what has China actually done in it’s short time on the world stage.
    Looking at the list of intended targets of this visit, I’d go with the Chinese, for
    “Zambia, borehole drilling, Levy Mwanawasa hospital expansion, Kenneth Kaunda International Airport and the cooperation in wild animal and forest cooperation.
    … assist Zambia with its road network, health sector and energy sector.
    …. also contemplating assisting Zambia with more mobile hospitals…China was also interested in assisting Zambia work on the Batoka hydro-power generating station.”
    Voices opposing China’s involvement in Africa should think, railways in Nigeria & Kenya,…
