The CEC is a consolidated organisation of all China’s power enterprises and institutions, with over 1400 members.

This announcement comes on the heels of a commitment by the China Development Bank that it will channel $1.5-billion to China’s partners in the developing world to fund scores of infrastructure projects, and South Africa’s recent admission to the BRICS bloc of emerging economies.< /p>

“Africa’s trade with China has reached unprecedented levels, up more than 1000% from 11 years ago,” said John Thomson, Managing Director of Exhibition Management Services, organisers of Energex Africa.

“Sino-Africa trade reached $126.9-billion last year. China has now surpassed Germany as South Africa’s number one trading partner,” he adds.

CEC will lead a group of top Chinese power companies to participate at Energex Africa. These include organisations in the area of power generation, transmission and distribution.

Participants include:

  • China Guodian Corporation which is one of the five biggest power generators in China.
  • Shaanxi Local Electric Power Group which is the largest power distribution company owned by local government in China, supplying electricity to more than four million customers in Shaanxi province.
  • Shandong Electric Power Engineering Consulting Institute Corporation which was founded in 1958 and is affiliated to China’s State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation.

“These sessions are designed to give local energy companies the opportunity to interact face-to-face with leaders in the Chinese energy sector,” said Thomson.
