Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi wrapped up his annual tour to Africa on Saturday with a quick stopover in the Indian Ocean island state of Seychelles, before heading back to Asia. During his half-day visit to Victoria, Wang met with Foreign Minister Sylvestre Radegonde and later with President Wavel Ramkalawan.
For the most part, the visits to The Seychelles and to Tanzania the day before seemed to be more focused on relationship-building than anything else. In both instances, Wang didn’t make the kinds of announcements on debt relief or the BRI that marked his visits to Nigeria, DR Congo and Botswana, the other stops on his week-long tour.
