On July 29, H.E President Hakainde Hichilema attends the commissioning ceremony of the Kafue Bulk Water Supply Project, constructed by CCECC. Ambassador Du Xiaohui was invited to attend this event and delivered a speech.
Ambassador Du said that this week is China Week, and His Excellency the President's attendance at three China-related events reflects four meanings: Firstly, His Excellency the President attaches great importance to relations with China. Secondly, the activities of China Week show that the essence of China-Zambia pragmatic cooperation is for the people. Thirdly, China-Zambia cooperation has not lost speed. Fourthly, China-Zambia all-dimensional cooperation enjoys bright prospects.
In his keynote speech, His Excellency the President thanked the Chinese government and Chinese enterprises for the strong support for water and electricity supply projects involving Zambia's economy and people's livelihood. He hoped to continue to strengthen cooperation with all parties including China to make full use of the water resources of the Kafue River to further promote the economic development of Zambia and improve the living standards of the Zambian people.
