The 2018 Bei­jing Sum­mit of the Fo­rum on China-africa Co­op­er­a­tion (FO­CAC) will be held from Septem­ber 3 to 4. Themed “China and Africa: To­ward an Even Stronger Com­mu­nity with a Shared Fu­ture through Win-win Co­op­er­a­tion,” the sum­mit will gather Chi­nese and African lead­ers in Bei­jing to dis­cuss new plans for co­op­er­a­tion in the new era.

On the morn­ing of Septem­ber 3, the High­level Di­a­logue of China-africa Lead­ers and Busi­ness Rep­re­sen­ta­tives and the open­ing cer­e­mony of the 6th Con­fer­ence of the Chi­nese and African En­trepreneurs will be held. In the af­ter­noon, Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping will de­liver a key­note speech at the open­ing cer­e­mony of the 2018 FO­CAC Bei­jing Sum­mit, where he is ex­pected to an­nounce new ideas and pro­pos­als to strengthen China-africa re­la­tions and new plans and mea­sures to ex­pand China-africa co­op­er­a­tion.

On Septem­ber 4, Pres­i­dent Xi and his South African coun­ter­part Cyril Ramaphosa will pre­side over the Chi­nese- African lead­ers’ round­table meet­ing. The sum­mit is ex­pected to adopt a Bei­jing Dec­la­ra­tion on build­ing even stronger ties be­tween China and Africa to cre­ate a shared fu­ture. It will also fea­ture a three- year ac­tion plan for 2019 to 2021.

Since its in­cep­tion in 2000, the FO­CAC has evolved into a model of South-south co­op­er­a­tion and a ban­ner of in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion with Africa. Amid dras­tic changes in the global sit­u­a­tion, how China and Africa seize op­por­tu­ni­ties and stride to­gether to­wards win-win co­op­er­a­tion and com­mon de­vel­op­ment is worth pon­der­ing over and notic­ing. The 2018 Bei­jing Sum­mit of the FO­CAC is ex­pected to draw a new blueprint for fu­ture co­op­er­a­tion be­tween China and Africa.
