Chilean President Michelle Bachelet Jeria called on Monday for enhanced international cooperation and multilateralism in addressing global problems that affect different countries.

In her speech at the Beijing-based Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), Bachelet said Chile was willing to make joint efforts with China to tackle these global issues.

She pointed out that globalization was the fountainhead of innovation and opportunity. However, there should also be careful consideration of ways to deal with the many uncertainties caused by globalization.

The only effective way was to strengthen international cooperation and collective activities, she said.

This was the right way, she emphasized. She cited the example of the first global agreement, a roadmap to address climate change agreed upon by more than 180 countries at the UN climate change conference last year on Indonesia's resort island of Bali.

Bachelet arrived in Sanya, a city in the southern province of Hainan, on Friday to start her first state visit to China. She has just attended this year's annual meeting of the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) held in Sanya and met with Chinese President Hu Jintao.

Bachelet is scheduled to leave Beijing for Shanghai on Monday.

China and Chile on Sunday signed a service trade pact as a supplement to their free trade agreement, the first of its kind that China has signed with a Latin American country.

Under the pact, the two nations will further open their service sectors to each other on the basis of their commitments to the World Trade Organization (WTO).

The two countries signed their FTA in 2005, and it took effect in October 2006. Bilateral trade soared 65 percent year-on-year to14.7 billion U.S. dollars in 2007, up from the 23.9 percent growth posted in 2006.
