The China Economic and Social Council(CESC) wants to boost exchanges with Niger's Economic, Social and Cultural Council (CESOC), a senior Chinese official said Friday.
Wang Gang, chairman of the CESC and member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the remarks when he met with the chairman of the CESOC Amadou Cheiffou in Beijing.
Both councils grouped experts in social and economic development, Wang said, and could learn from each other, as they deepened cooperation.
Wang, also vice chairman of the National Committee of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, said the two nations' relations had developed well since they resumed diplomatic ties 13years ago.
He also expressed appreciation to Niger's adherence to the one-China policy and its support on issues related to Taiwan and Tibet.
