Video Message of H.E. Professor Faustin Archange Touadera, President of the Central African Republic
Distinguished State Councilor and Minister for Foreign Affairs,
Secretary-General of the United Nations,
Chairperson of the African Union Commission,
Ladies and gentlemen,
Today, I am very pleased to participate in the 20th anniversary of the overseas assistance of Juncao technology in Beijing via video link.
The people of the Central African Republic and the great Chinese people are brought together by a strong community of shared future.
I sincerely thank our dear friend, His Excellency President Xi Jinping, for his permanent engagement with the Central African Republic.
At the same time, I must pay tribute to President Xi Jinping for his noble actions in Africa and other parts of the world to combat the outbreak of COVID-19.
I am very pleased to see that though the pandemic is ongoing, the Juncao technology has been developing since President Xi Jinping gave special instructions.
Thanks to the beneficial practice of this technology, many farmers in our country have successfully cultivated a variety of mushrooms.
With the help of the Chinese Juncao Technical Expert Team in the Central African Republic, this multi-effect development project will eventually benefit many other production sectors.
Juncao technology not only serves as a link for China to establish new friendships and brotherhoods with other countries and regions in the world, but also brings hope for the sustainable development of developing countries.
The application of Chinese Juncao technology is in line with the agricultural development concept of governments of both the People's Republic of China and the Central African Republic.
We hope that the cooperation between our two countries will discover more benefits and uses of Juncao.
In order to encourage the promotion of Juncao technology and express the gratitude of the Central African Republic, I awarded honors to Chinese Juncao experts in 2019 and designated the Nguerengou village as a pilot village for the promotion of Juncao in our country.
On behalf of the people of the Central African Republic, I would like to express my gratitude to President Xi Jinping and the Chinese people for this fraternal friendship.
