Amity and sincerity make the dream come true
Farmers in the Republic of Madagascar used to spend more than an hour to transport eggs only 10 kilometers’ away. As the road was bumpy, nearly 10 percent of agricultural products like eggs were broken.
However, China helped build roads in Madagascar, solving the transportation difficulties faced by Madagascan farmers.
The project demonstrated China’s unchanging original aspirations to help Africa develop and to benefit the African people.
The principles of sincerity, practical results, affinity and good faith, uphold the values of friendship, justice, and shared interests were proposed in March 2013, and set a fundamental standard for China-Africa friendship and cooperation in the new era.
The commitments of "giving more and taking less, giving before taking and giving without asking for return. With open arms, we welcome African countries aboard the express train of China's development" and "We will fully honor the promises we have made to our African brothers" were reaffirmed at the Beijing Summit of the China-Africa Cooperation Forum in 2018.

From the "Access to Satellite TV for 10,000 African Village" project to the Brightness Action, Chinese aid to African countries over the past year can be seen in road construction, bridge building and skill training.

Chinese media company StarTimes launched a satellite television project, which was one of the cultural cooperation ideas put forward at the Johannesburg Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation in Johannesburg in 2015.
Although there are some countries trying hard to smear China for its aids to African countries, claiming that China is setting up a “debt trap” or acting like a “neo-colonial power", leaders form African countries have come out against the ludicrous accusations, saying that China is proving itself to be African countries’true friend by its actions.
