President Hichilema Concludes Visit to China, Acknowledges Bilateral Success


President Hakainde Hichilema continued a series of high-level interactions with the People’s Republic of China during his visit. One of the highlights of his visit was a meeting with His Excellency Mr. Li Qiang, the Prime Minister of the People’s Republic of China, during which they engaged in crucial bilateral discussions.

President Hichilema expressed his profound appreciation to Prime Minister Li for his advocacy in advocating for the reform of the global financial order. This advocacy was notably evident during their previous meeting in Paris, where Prime Minister Li called upon the international community to work towards reshaping global financial governance. The overarching goal of these reforms is to create a stable and equitable financial environment, especially for developing countries. President Hichilema reiterated Zambia’s alignment with these views, emphasizing the urgent need to address the high cost of capital for African nations.

Furthermore, President Hichilema conveyed Zambia’s gratitude to Prime Minister Li for his leadership in the intricate negotiations regarding debt restructuring. These negotiations have provided Zambia with an opportunity to reschedule its debt, offering the nation a pathway towards improved financial stability and sustainability.

In his statement, President Hakainde Hichilema extended heartfelt thanks to the People’s Republic of China for their unwavering support and warm hospitality throughout his visit. He announced his departure from Beijing, as he and his delegation prepared to return to Lusaka, Zambia.

The President concluded by expressing his gratitude to the Zambian people for their continued prayers and support.


  1. Wasting our taxpayers money. He is only doing this trip because of all the pressure we put on him to engage our largest creditors. He is not doing it out of his own volition. Nothing tangible will come out of a forced trip

  2. African leaders are good at taking pictures and fooling their gullible followers pretending like they’re working….but meanwhile they do their own corrupt businesses using tax payers money and government resources…but of course praise singers Limbani madoda will crucify me by saying this….

  3. All these begging escapedes will not takes us anywhere. Our money is in our God given minerals. Mine the minerals, grow crops and sale. Selfies will not pay what we owe China for as long as whites are mining here for free.

  4. In opposition the supreme leader Ayatollah Hakainde Hichilema was against beggar mentality but it turns out he was just faking it…he is even begging more than Edgar Lungu

  5. 55 trips abroad in 22 months! People like the PIG, Mr Musamba, the army commanders, and plenty of civil servants I know, have stopped staying in their homes and dont work in their offices because they are camped at the KKIA to say “goodbye sir” and “Welcome back sir your excellency” Otherwise they will be fired.

  6. Afrikaconnector salutes President HH and the new dawn government for the China trip because it has immense benefits to Zàmbia and Africa
