Summary
"This book records the author Wei Jianguo's doings, experiences and thoughts in the 37 years from 1972 to 2008. Through Jianguo's memoir, reading see Africa's spectacular natural landscape, understand its pristine customs and traditions, learn of its rich history and geography, and become aware of numerous touching stories. Based on his work experience, Wei Jianguo has extended his perspective to the entire history of New China's economic and trade relations with Africa from a unique point of view, with rich contents and in a straightforward style. Like a friendship envoy shuttling between the past and the present, he leads us to appreciate the skills of our colleagues working arduously in Africa, to see the profound friendship between the Chinese and African peoples, and to see the far-reaching significance of 60 years of remarkable achievements in comprehensive friendly Sino-African cooperation."--Dust jacket flap.
