On Feb. 27th, SASAC Vice Chairman held talks with Mr. Dikobe Ben Martins, Deputy Minister of Department of Public Enterprises, South Africa. The two sides exchanged views on the long-term exchanges and cooperation framework to be established by the two organizations.
Huang thought the framework could be useful in two dimensions. On the one hand, it should promote bilateral exchanges of laws and regulations, policies and practices regarding state-owned assets supervision and management as well as SOE reform. On the other hand, it should help SOEs of the two countries to better communicate for a mutual-trust, complimentary and reciprocal partnership.
According to Martins, South Africa is about to invest heavily in infrastructure so as for the people to enjoy a better living standard, which would undoubtedly provide valuable openings for the two countries to exercise their comprehensive strategic partnership and for the two organizations to put their long-term cooperation framework into reality. He hoped Chinese SOEs could make full use of their advantages and actively take part in the forthcoming large scale development of infrastructure such as road, railways, bridges, ports, airports and power facilities in South Africa so that a win-win outcome can be enjoyed by both sides.
