Leaders from 11 African countries' national trade unions and industrial trade unions depicted China's trade union as good comrades and brothers, and thanked for the support and assistance from the Chinese government and trade union for years.

They said they would work with the Chinese side to bring their friendly cooperation to a new stage.
