African youth’s China perception improves amid blossoming ties

Elias Gebreselassie grew up in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and he, like his peers, has long thought that skyscrapers, shopping malls and highways could only be scenes in Hollywood movies.

The 34-year-old praised China’s investment in modern infrastructure such as roads and social facilities, which made the capital a charming international metropolis and the headquarters of the African Union.

Gebreselassie said his understanding of China has been greatly improved after witnessing its contribution to Africa’s socio-economic development through the construction of industrial parks, skyscrapers and electrified railway lines.
