South-South cooperation is a manifestation of solidarity among peoples and countries of the South. Practically, it advocates the mutual help, trade, bilateral investment and people-to-people exchange among developing countries. Infrastructure construction has been a main field in the cooperation between China and Africa. SANY, as a world-leading heavy equipment manufacturer, is contributing to the vision of China&Africa’s common prosperity with quality products and services. Following are three construction cases in Africa that SANY was involved in.
