  In his speech, Abdul’ahat Abdurixit said, though far apart, friendly contacts between the people of China and South Africa began as early as 500 years ago. Over the years the Chinese people have actively supported and provided assistance to the South African people in their just struggle against racism and apartheid, and forged profound friendship with them. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations in January 1, 1998, the friendly exchanges and traditional friendship between our two peoples have been further enhanced and developed. The Vice Chairman added, in the past ten years, China and South Africa have witnessed rapid and all-round development of their bilateral relations, featured by frequent exchanges of high-level visits, deepened mutual political trust, fruitful cooperation in the areas including economy, trade, science, technology and culture, and close consultation in international and regional affairs. He expressed the hope that the CSAFA would carry out varied, rich, colourful and lively activities with the aim of promoting friendship and cooperation between China and South Africa, and serve as a bridge and tie between our two peoples.
