Qian also said that Chinese investments in Africa are largely in the form of infrastructure projects and are valuable assets that will bring benefits to Africa's future economic growth.
While making investments, China will select more projects that generate economic benefits, create jobs, and increase taxes and exports, he said.
Looking forward, China will focus on helping strengthen Africa's internal drive for economic development, and share its experience in infrastructure construction with African countries, Qian said.
