     During the meeting with Ibrahim, Liu Zhenya analyzed energy endowment and consumption growth in Africa and brought up an overall idea for future energy development and comprehensive utilization in Africa. He said UHV transmission and other technological breakthroughs made cross-border, inter-continental transmission possible, and were of great significance for the development of African power.
