Hailing Tanzania as a significant partner of China, Li, chairman of the National People’s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, said that under the guidance of important consensus between the two heads of state, China would better synergize with Tanzania to implement the outcomes of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, and firmly support each other on issues concerning each other’s core interests.
