Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune wrapped up a two-day trip to Shenzhen on Friday, an important part of his first state visit to China since taking office in 2019.
Following his visit to Beijing, Shenzhen was the second and last stop of Tebboune’s state visit.
Shenzhen Party chief Meng Fanli met with Tebboune and his delegation on Thursday. Shenzhen will deepen cooperation with Algerian cities, enterprises and other institutions to achieve win-win results, and make greater contribution to the development of the Chinese-Algerian comprehensive strategic partnership, Meng said.
