One China policy

He also called on the Nigerian government ‎to ensure ‘full execution’ of the One China policy between both countries and changing the name: “Trade Mission of the Republic of China (Taiwan) to Taipei Trade Agency, Lagos,” and relocating the Mission to Lagos State.

In a statement from APC, the Ambassador briefed the APC National Working Committee (NWC) on China’s domestic politics and China-Nigeria strategic bilateral relations.

He also explored areas of co-operation and collaboration between the governing parties of both countries – the APC and the Communist Party of China (CPC).

The statement also said this year is a big one for party politics in China.

“Every five years, we hold party conventions where we draw a new blueprint for the years ahead.

“That means major policy decisions will be made at the National Congress of the Communist Party of China.

A new Central Committee will be elected at the congress. The central committee will in turn elect the new central leadership”, he said.
