Bilateral economic and trade cooperation has been the locomotive and stabilizer for the Sino-German relations, as Jia noted that the trade volumes between the two countries had increased by over 500 folds from only 275 million U.S. dollars upon the diplomatic ties were forged some 40 years ago to some 142.4 billion dollars last year, accounting for nearly 30 percent in the total volumes of Sino-EU trades.

Jia said China will pursue the main objective of accelerating transformation of economic development model, speeding up strategic adjustment of the economic structure, pushing forward the long term stable and quicker economic development over a long run and maintaining social harmony and stability.

He said that China will continue to stick to the independent peaceful foreign policy, no interference into other countries' internal affairs and not to impose own willing onto others.

Jia put forward three proposals on intensifying the Sino-German pragmatic cooperations on economic and trade ties, stressing further tapping market potentials, expanding trade scale, enhancing two-way direct investment and intensifying industrial interactions, while expanding the cooperative spheres and striking up new highlights for future cooperation.

Jia arrived in Germany on Sunday for a 6-day visit. Germany is the last stop of Jia's three-nation European tour, which has already taken him to Greece and the Netherlands.
