Mustafa AY – TDO – 22.07.2018 On Saturday, Chinese President Xi Jinping landed on Senegal in order to hold official talks with his counterpart Macky Sall. Chinese President’s official visit to Senegal carries the feature of first ever official trip during his 9-year-long presidency to a West African country. After Senegal, Chinese leader is reportedly planning to visit first Rwanda, then Mauritius and South Africa. The reason why President Xi is visiting African nations can be to raise Africa-China bilateral trade volume, which is around 220 billion dollars, to far more.
