Vice-Premier Sun Chunlan met with President of Madagascar Andry Rajoelina and held talks with Prime Minister Christian Ntsay, in Tananarive on Nov 5 during her official visit to the island country.

“With a long-standing relationship, China and Madagascar have been respecting and supporting each other in an equal, sincere and friendly manner,” said Sun, envisaging strong vitality and bright prospects for their bilateral ties.

“China is willing to consolidate the well-established friendship and enhance mutual political trust with Madagascar,” said Sun.

Meanwhile, China will work together with Madagascar to implement the consensus reached at the Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, align the Belt and Road Initiative with the Initiative Emergence Madagascar (IEM), and boost multilateral coordination, she added, in a bid to uplift the comprehensive cooperative partnership to a new stage.

Sun also said that China welcomes Malagasy enterprises to attend the China International Import Expo, as China intends to offer its opportunities to all other countries along with its accelerated moves to unfold a new chapter of opening-up on all fronts.

Rajoelina and Ntsay stressed that Madagascar and China are always cooperating in line with the principles of sincerity, equality, mutual benefits and win-win results.

The bilateral cooperation, coupled with Madagascar’s development priorities, has yielded fruitful results, winning widespread praise among the Malagasy people, they said.

Looking forward, Madagascar is willing to play an active role in the BRI, serve the development strategies of both sides, and strengthen international collaboration, to inject huge momentum into bilateral ties for a greater future.

During the stay, Sun also paid a special visit and conveyed greetings to the Chinese medical team working at the China-aided hospital in Madagascar.
