Wang Min suggested China and ASEAN focus more on cultivating mining talents through joint efforts. The forum serves as a good platform for both sides to promote various favorable policies for China-ASEAN FTA and strengthen exchanges of mining information, Wang said.

The China-ASEAN Mining Talent Exchange and Training Center was founded in Nanning of Guangxi during the forum, and is set to play an important role in training mining talents for ASEAN countries.

The representatives of mining enterprises and administrations in Myanmar, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand who attended the forum expressed the hope that China and ASEAN countries can strengthen their technological cooperation in prospecting deep mines, develop clean energy and recover the environment of mines.

Chinese officials said the transfer and sharing of new mining and environmental technologies is very important for China-ASEAN cooperation.

China invested in 76 mining projects in ASEAN countries from January to April. Chen Wu, chairman of Guangxi, said Guangxi is willing to strengthen cooperation with ASEAN members in mining exploration and exploitation, information exchanges, training and equipment.

Representatives of ASEAN countries agreed to strengthen cooperation at the provincial and city levels, which they see as more practical and specific.
