Jia, chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee, made the remarks during his visit to the Itaipu Waterpower Station on the Brazil-Paraguay border.

Jia spoke highly of Itaipu's resource utilization mode, which combines hydrodynamics, aquatic breeding, tourism and ecosystem protection, a development mode characteristic of harmony between man and the nature.

China and Brazil are both rich in hydraulic resources. Vast is the room for bilateral exchange and cooperation in areas like the conservation of water resources, construction and administration of power installations, as well as personnel training, he said.

Jia expressed hope that both sides could learn from each other so as to better serve the interests of the two peoples.

Itaipu is the world's second biggest hydroelectric power station, only after China's Three Gorges Dam. With a total installed generation capacity of 14,000 Megawatts, it supplies 30percent of the electricity consumed by Brazil and the total of that consumed by Paraguay.
