Chinese Premier Li Keqiang to Visit Kenya and Nigeria in 4 Nations Tour

Intelligence reports confirm that Chinese Premier Li Keqiang will visit Kenya, Ethiopia, and oil-rich Angola and Nigeria in May.

The premier will not be in Africa to seal energy deals rather a more aggressive bilateral trade agreement mission.

Kenya and Ethiopia are new oil and gas fronts and Kenya is likely to start oil producing in two years.

Nigeria and Angola are Africa’s largest oil producers with Angola being one of the biggest sources of Chinese petroleum imports.

China treats the Africans as equals offering a counter balance to West’s hegemony where Wests always takes more than it gives.

Li’s May 4th -11th trip will cover Ethiopia and Kenya after touring Nigeria and Angola.
