“Chinese enterprises are our true friends”

Ivory Coast has beautiful natural scenery and is known as the “Pearl of West Africa”, but its infrastructure and power grid system are relatively weak, which has become one of the important factors restricting its economic development. In March 2017, State Grid Xinjiang power transmission and transformation Co., Ltd. of China undertook the development and transformation project of State Grid of ivory coast. After more than three years of efforts, the power grid level and rural power grid coverage rate of Cote d’Ivoire have been greatly improved. According to the plan, the project will be completed by the end of this year, and the grid connected power transmission will cover 20% of the power shortage areas in Ivory Coast. < / P > < p > in order to ensure the smooth progress of the reconstruction project, the project department finally sent a temporary assault team composed of 4 Chinese engineers and 5 local business backbones. In the past 50 hours, the assault team helped the substation to complete a series of work, such as dismantling the old tower, changing the line, connecting the fire and debugging, and finally successfully delivered the power, which was 5 hours shorter than the expected time. Stephanie koufeira, the director of the substation, said: “you can not only bear hardships, but also have great executive power. Your work efficiency is very high, which is admirable.” < / P > < p > Alex was born in a slum. When he was young, he was deprived of school because of his poor family.

Now, Alex is a qualified project director, responsible for the recruitment of the project department and the communication with local staff.

Once, when Wang fengjiang, the person in charge of the project department, gave a lecture in the second Central Primary School of diekui City, diekui Province, where the project department is located, he found that the children like playing football, but because there is no football, they have to make it with straw rope. After discussion, the project department decided to donate a number of textbooks, stationery and football to the school. Alice, principal of the second Central Primary School in diekui City, said that the moment they got the football, the children held it high above their heads and sang enthusiastically to express their gratitude. “It’s great that the kids have a brand new football of their own for the first time.”
