Message from Ambassador Zhou Pingjian
Welcome to visit the website of the Chinese Embassy.

China and Nigeria, both large developing countries, regard each other as important strategic cooperation partners. Since the establishment of diplomatic ties on February 10th 1971, the all-dimensional, wide-ranging and high-quality cooperation between China and Nigeria has been a pacesetter in China-Africa cooperation. China has become Nigeria's largest project contractor, second largest trading partner and major source of investment. The friendship and cooperation between China and Nigeria have delivered tangible benefits to the two peoples.

As President Xi Jinping said in his address at the Opening Ceremony of the FOCAC Summit last November, "China-Africa relations have today reached a stage of growth unmatched in history. We should scale the heights, look afar and take bold steps. Let us join hands, pool the vision and strengthen the 2.4 billion Chinese and Africans and open a new era of China-Africa win-win cooperation and common development."

Standing at a crucial new starting point, the China-Nigeria relation is blessed with important development opportunities. China highly values its relations with Nigeria and stands ready to work with Nigeria to follow through on the important consensus reached by leaders of both countries and the outcomes of the Johannesburg Summit of the Forum on China-Africa cooperation and take the China-Nigeria strategic partnership to a new height, to the greater benefits of the two countries and two peoples.
