Accompanied by He Liehui, chairman of Touchroad Group, and senior officials of the China Law Society, the delegation, consisting of top legal officials and lawyers from countries such as Benin, South Africa, Egypt and Ethiopia, visited the Africa Center.

The African legal experts praised the Africa Center as a good platform for promoting Sino-Africa friendship and economic cooperation. They also explored the possibility of establishing a legal institution to resolve commercial disputes between China and African countries.

The delegation reached the consensus that the establishment of an effective legal institution must be conducive to resolving commercial disputes between Chinese and African enterprises in an efficient and low-cost way.
