The President and CEO of AFC, Samaila Zubairu, stated: “In the last two decades, China has grown from a relatively small investor to becoming one of Africa’s largest trading partners today. This facility is therefore not only a milestone for the Corporation and its strategy for the Far East, but also marks a natural evolution in the growing financial sophistication of China in Africa, a necessary development required to accelerate Africa’s journey towards closing the infrastructure deficit.

“Moreover, AFC welcomes CEXIM’s commitment towards its Africa strategy, and we look forward to lending our expertise on how best to deliver sustainable infrastructure investment that should catalyze industrial growth on the continent,” Said Samaila Zubairu ended his statement.
