A question that was put forward strongly before and during the forum, and included opinions for many of the poorest African countries in the world and those suffering from poor infrastructure and education is not recovering as an economy, and hence, African countries have interests to attract them to this cooperation and If each country has its own file with China, and the host country has also taken care of it, it has not failed to conclude wholesale agreements with each country and to hold conferences and papers of understanding with this country on its own, but the African countries collectively look forward to the following;

The other important thing for both sides is that allowing Chinese military bases on the territory of that country will change the face of the African continent in the absolute domination of the United States of America and Europe and this would constitute a new sovereign pattern on the continent, regardless of the seriousness of these rules and what can To produce a future in the event of a war between China and America, for example, these rules will re-divide the old world according to the difference of control and hegemony that can be imposed by China in this case.

In a comprehensive analytical view, let us consider the importance of this meeting, which brings together China, the nation of one billion and 250 million people, and the African continent with all the capabilities, wealth, vision of cooperation and common interests.

China is the initiator of the idea and the proposal of this grouping, which aims to promote Sino-African relations and also enhance cooperation on all levels. China has many interests in this Chinese-African rapprochement. Its openness to the African continent basically means expanding its political and strategic influence in the world.So let's show the main aims for China benefits of this cooperation;
1- Firstly , China's openness to African countries , aimed to opens the door to Its exports, allows trade exchange, promotes economic cooperation and opens up new markets for its products, thus enhancing the value of the Chinese currency as well as its economy and business.
2- Secondly ,the opening of China to African countries means opening the wealth of the continent of oil, diamonds, gold and precious metals ,like the United States and Europe who monopolize this wealth to them, and the entry of China a strong competitor will allow the strength to put China's hand on oil specifically And energy in general, and will open the door to its cultural project Silk Road, which is working to re-create
Thirdly, China's opening up to African countries means a source of penetration of the continent and strategic political cooperation promoted as a global power competing with the other superpower, bringing with it many political benefits to become the dominant superpowers and if it declared otherwise, It will have a strong political impact, and we recall that Beijing got permanent membership in the United Nations in the seventies of the last century with the support of African countries.
