Jieyang municipal government attaches great importance to the deepening exchanges between Jieyang and Africa. It is the inevitable choice to strengthen "Jie-Africa” friendship and mutually beneficial cooperation, for there is broad prospect in economic and trade cooperation between the two places. From the perspective of industrial development， Jieyang and most African countries with great complementarity are in a critical period of transformation and upgrading. Africans have strong demand for "inexpensive good quality" products of Jieyang, especially for footwear, textiles and clothing, wireless communication equipment which are doubly favored by the majority of ordinary consumers. It is understood that there are 460 Jieyang corporates cooperating with Africans in import and export trade with the total volume of 460 million U.S. dollars, rising 37.6% over the same period. Currently, the cooperation between Jieyang and Africa mainly lies in manufacturing. We believe that trade between Jieyang and Africa will develop more favorably by further deepening of China's reform and opening up policy, especially by the “Jie-Africa” cooperation and exploration in E-commerce.
