He said that the world is experiencing complicated and profound changes, especially at a time when the global financial crisis is expanding, which, according to him, should be tided over with joint efforts.

The Chinese and Colombian vice presidents signed several agreements on collaboration in the fields of economy, technology and finance after their meeting.

Earlier on Monday at a breakfast meeting with entrepreneurs from both Colombia and China, Xi laid out a beautiful future for China-Colombia mutually beneficial cooperation.

Efforts should be made together to elevate the bilateral ties of economy and trade towards a new altitude, Xi said.

He also said Colombia has been listed as the sixth tourism destination for Chinese citizens in South America.

The economic and trade cooperation, an important part of their friendly cooperative relations between China and Colombia, has also served as an impetus substantial for deepening the bilateral ties.

Colombian Vice President Francisco Santos was also present at the meeting.

Xi flew into the Colombian capital city Sunday afternoon from the northern port city of Cartagena where he met with Colombian President Alvaro Uribe on bilateral ties.

Colombia is the third leg of Xi's six-nation trip which has already taken him to Mexico, Jamaica. He will also visit Venezuela, Brazil and Malta.
