It is a great honor to serve as the Sixth Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the People's Republic of China to the Republic of South Africa. Welcome to the website of the Chinese Embassy in South Africa, and thank you for your interest in China and China-South Africa relations.

China and South Africa are both major developing countries with important influence in the world. Since China and South Africa established diplomatic ties in 1998, our bilateral relations have made great leap forward from partnership, strategic partnership to comprehensive strategic partnership. Under the personal guidance of President Xi Jinping and President Cyril Ramaphosa, the China-South Africa comprehensive strategic partnership has been growing smoothly and steadily. We enjoy deep political mutual trust, fruitful practical cooperation, burgeoning cultural and people-to-people exchanges and close coordination in international and regional affairs. China-South Africa relations are embracing important opportunities for sound and rapid development in all fields.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, China and South Africa have been uniting and fighting as one against the epidemic, demonstrating the firm determination of our two countries to share weal and woe and tide over the difficult times together, and injecting strong positive energy into China-Africa and global anti-epidemic cooperation. We believe that with the concerted efforts of China and South Africa, we will prevail over the epidemic and restore economic and social development as soon as possible. The Chinese Embassy in South Africa will stay committed to promoting friendly exchange and cooperation between our two countries and two peoples so as to elevate China-South Africa comprehensive strategic partnership to a new high.

I sincerely hope this website can serve as a window for you to learn more about China and China-South Africa relations. We are committed to providing you with needed information and warm assistance. You are more than welcome to share with us comments and advice that would help us improve our work.
