Chinese Finance Minister Jin Renqing on Wednesday in Stockholm discussed trade cooperation with Swedish Deputy Prime Minister Bosse Ringholm and Finance Minister Par Nuder.
The Chinese minister said that the Chinese and Swedish economies were complementary in nature and enjoyed good prospects for future cooperation.
He said that bilateral trade volume had topped 5.7 billion U.S. dollars last year and China had become Sweden's largest trade partner in Asia.
China was pleased with the existing sound bilateral relations and was willing to work with the Swedish side to boost their trade ventures to fresh heights, Jin said.
Ringholm and Nuder praised China's economic achievements made since China launched its reform and opening-up policy at the end of the 1970s.
They also spoke highly of the Chinese government's policy of sustainable economic development, saying it had made important contributions to the progress of China and the world at large.
During the talks, the two sides agreed to further expand their cooperation in the fields of finance and taxation.
