The leaders watched a video from a large LED panel about the development of China's railway and aviation industries before they were shown around and briefed by Chinese technicians on the specifics of those models. It is not the first time that Li promotes China's technology to other countries during his overseas visits.

In Romania last November, Li invited leaders of 16 central and eastern European countries to a similar exhibition on China's railway technology and other infrastructure and manufacturing equipments. In Thailand last October, he attended the opening ceremony of a Chinese high-speed railway exhibition with Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

In his speech at the AU headquarters earlier in the day, Li said China is ready to expand cooperation with Africa in building road, rail, telecommunications, power grid and other infrastructure so as to help the continent realize regional interconnection. Read more from  CRI »
