China encourages enterprises to invest in South Africa in fields such as port construction and oil and gas development to foster a new growth point of bilateral cooperation, Premier Li Keqiang told visiting Speaker Baleka Mbete of South Africa’s National Assembly on April 7.

China and South Africa, sharing a similar philosophy in development, are highly complementary in trade and economic cooperation, and enjoy huge potential for cooperation, Premier Li said.

China is willing to carry out industrial and capacity cooperation with South Africa, and help to boost South Africa’s industrialization with its spare capacity, he said.
