On February 17, 2024, President Xi Jinping sent a congratulatory message to the 37th African Union (AU) Summit.

Xi Jinping pointed out that the world today is undergoing profound changes unseen in a century, and the Global South represented by China and Africa is booming, which has a profound impact on the course of world history. The AU brings African countries together to seek strength through unity and vigorously promote integration and the building of free trade areas. The AU's successful accession to the G20 has further enhanced Africa's representation and increased its voice in global governance, and China extends heartfelt congratulations on that.

Xi Jinping stressed that China-Africa relations have steadily deepened over the past year. The China-Africa Leaders' Dialogue was successfully held, at which the two sides decided to support each other in exploring their respective modernization paths and jointly create a favorable environment for realizing their development visions. Noting that the new session of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation is going to be held in 2024, Xi said he stands ready to work with leaders of African countries to elaborately draw up a new blueprint for China-Africa cooperation and promote the joint building of a high-level China-Africa community with a shared future  to the benefit of the people of both sides.
