Chinese President Xi Jinping met Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan in Beijing on Thursday, and the two leaders agreed to upgrade bilateral relations to a comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership. Noting that Hassan is the first African head of state to be received by China after the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Xi said this fully shows the closeness of China-Tanzania relations and the important status of China-Africa ties in China's overall diplomacy.

During their meeting, the two leaders agreed to maintain high-level communication, and strengthen cooperation on various levels between legislative branches and political parties. The two also agreed to expand trade scale, push forward infrastructure project cooperation and join hands in other fields such as green development as well as digital economy. 

Chinese experts believed the upgrading of ties will bring China and Tanzania closer in various fields when the African country is facing multiple challenges. Also, being the first head of state from an African nation to visit China after the successful conclusion of the 20th National Congress of the CPC shows Tanzania's endorsement of past cooperation with China, and the confidence and increasing willingness to cooperate with China will give this African country, as well as the whole continent, much-needed impetus for economic recovery amid COVID-19 epidemic, and help those countries successfully develop their own growth path, said experts.
