Added On December 6, 2015

As the Chinese president is attending a China-Africa summit in Johannesburg, the Chinese government has issued an Africa policy paper. 

The document is the second of its kind since 2006.
Consisting of five parts, the paper covers China's relations and cooperation with Africa, the continent's regional organizations, and the Forum on China-African Cooperation.
It also lays out the principles of China's African policy.
According to it, China will promote all-round cooperation with Africa, including enhancing political mutual trust, improving coordination in international affairs, deepening economic and trade ties, and expanding people-to-people exchanges.
China issued its first Africa policy paper in 2006, which proposed a new type of China-Africa strategic partnership featuring political equality and mutual trust, economic win-win cooperation, and cultural exchange.
