In his speech, Liu Shaoxi first warmly welcomed President Bongo's visit to China again, then recalled the three visits to Gabon by President Bongo when he led a delegation of entrepreneurs from the Chinese International Chamber of Commerce, and expressed his deep gratitude to President Bongo and the Gabonese government for their strong support for the investment of the Yihua Group in Gabon.
Subsequently, Liu Shaoxi introduced that Yihua invested in Gabon in 2012, involving many fields, such as forestry, processing and manufacturing industry, real estate industry, and so on. Over the past six years, Yihua has deeply felt the importance attached by President Bongo and the Gabonese government to Chinese enterprises. It has also seen that the Gabonese government has formulated a series of preferential policies to continuously improve the investment environment. He said that Yihua will continue to increase investment in Gabon and participate in the diversification of Gabon in new areas such as tourism real estate development, scenic spot construction, industrial parks and so on.
Liu Shaoxi pointed out that the "one belt and one road" advocated by President Xi Jinping is a great blueprint never seen in human history, and a global cooperation initiative, which has been actively responded by entrepreneurs in China and Gabon. At present, China continues to maintain Gabon's status as the largest trading partner, and the continuous development of Sino-Gabonese relations has created a more favorable environment and platform for cooperation between enterprises of the two countries.
