China Chamber of Commerce supports Guinea-Bissau

5 October 2015

The Chinese Overseas Chamber of Commerce will cooperate with Guinea-Bissau in the agricultural, industrial and infrastructure sectors based on a protocol signed at the weekend in Bissau with the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Agriculture and Services (CCIAS) of Guinea-Bissau.

The document, whose details were not disclosed, was signed by Chen Zheng Yang, a businessman and member of the Chinese delegation and by Bramia Camará, president of CCIAS.

At the time Zeng Yang said the Chinese business mission aims to support the private sector in Guinea-Bissau, “a good country to make investments” and pointed out that his own company has been present for over 10 years in Africa, particularly in Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya.

“We now intend to extend our activities to the countries of West Africa,” he said, adding that the visit by a business delegation to Guinea-Bissau is “a great opportunity for the fulfilment of that wish.”

The mission of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce, which includes businessmen from different sectors, arrived in Bissau on Thursday and is expected to remain in Guinea-Bissau until the 8 October. (macauhub/CN/GW)
