In the next step, taking the successful event as an opportunity, Jinhua will deepen exchanges in various aspects such as platform construction, technological support, and talent development. It will accelerate the implementation of the Zhejiang–Africa cooperation plan, continuing to write a new chapter in China–Africa cooperation, contributing to the construction of a closer China–Africa community with a shared future.
