The Government of China has assured the people of Sierra Leone of  their countrys continuing support in various areas of need.


This was disclosed by the Chinese Ambassador to Sierra Leone His Excellency Mr. Qiu Shaofang in a news release issued on Wednesday 1st September 2010. According to Ambassador Shaofang, the Chinese Government will continue with its  assistance to  Sierra Leone  to ensure socio economic development . He said the Youyi Building was one of  Chinas generous support to Sierra Leone adding that they have completed several  developmental projects such as the co which  many people in Sierra Leone consider China as a developed country for certain due to a recently released data by the Japanese Government stating that Japans nominal Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was worth $1.286 trillion in the second quarter of this year, compared with $1.335 trillion for China. He said the release further indicated that China will certainly overtake Japan as the worlds second-largest economy in 2010. The Ambassador went on that China will be the second largest economy this year, but it is still a long and uphill journey to become a developed country, let alone the second strongest economy.


However, notwithstanding the above-mentioned disadvantages, Ambassador Shaofang went on, the undeniable fact is that China does have made substantial achievement since the implementation of reform and opening up policy and enjoys a sustained economic growth for decades. Along with the growing of economic strength and the expanding of international influence, China readily shoulders its due international responsibility
according to its own national strength and actively cooperates with other countries on various challenges both regional and global Ambassador Shaofang noted, adding; China hosts six-party talk aiming to solve North Korea Nuclear Crisis, dispatches peacekeeping troops to countries like Sudan and Haiti, and volunteers to cut carbon emission to ease climate change and global warming. He said China is also fully involved in the development assistance and poverty alleviation in African countries, citing that during the 2006 Beijing Summit and the 2009 Sharm el-Sheikh Ministerial Conference of Forum on China Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), China reduces and exempted debts of African countries worth billions of dollars, and pledged to further provide development assistance without any political conditions. He said In Sierra Leone, the Youyi Building which is a landmark of Freetown, is the best demonstration of Chinas generous support on the social and economic development. The new and modernized 100-bed hospital, the new Foreign Ministry and parliament office buildings among many other projects are under construction, which show the increasing efforts made by Chinese government on the support of Sierra Leones development the Ambassador went on.
