Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping Friday pledged to work with Croatia to actively promote bilateral cooperation.

"We should enhance cooperation in economy, trade, infrastructure construction, tourism and culture," Xi told visiting Croatian President Ivo Josipovic.

This would help push forward China-Croatian ties and benefit the two peoples, Xi said.

Croatia had been China's largest trade partner in southeast Europe for six years. "We value the growth of bilateral economic and trade relations with Croatia," Xi said.

Xi reviewed Chinese President Hu Jintao's visit to Croatia in June last year, saying that this historic visit gave a strong impetus to the development of China-Croatian ties.

Xi hoped the two sides would carry out the consensus reached by top leaders of both nations, and promote bilateral and mutually beneficial cooperation based on good political ties.

Xi praised Croatia's firm adherence to the one-China policy, saying China respected the Croatian people's choice of development path.
