Friendship Harbor


Major aid projects built by China in Africa

The Friendship Harbor in Nouakchott, the capital of northeast Africa's Mauritania, is one of China's largest aiding projects in Africa. The harbor was built at the cost of 340 million yuan (some $35 million) by China Road & Bridge Corporation during 1979-1986. It has a berthing throughput of 1.5 million dwt, and is fully equipped with facilities such as bulwarks, repairing workshops and warehouses. China has helped build five berths and has been keeping providing engineering support for the harbor. Photo taken on June 21, 2015. [Photo/Xinhua]
