Chinese Commerce Minister Chen Deming and Danish Economic Minister Brian Mikkelsen Monday hailed the current bilateral commercial ties as strong and constructive while seeing great potential for further economic cooperation.

Chen is visiting Denmark as the head of a large trade and investment delegation composed of more than 100 Chinese entrepreneurs. This has been the largest ever Chinese trade delegation to visit Denmark.

At the Danish-Chinese Trade and Investment Symposium Monday, both ministers expressed their satisfaction with the development of commercial ties during the past 60 years since the establishment of diplomatic ties.

With joint efforts of both countries, bilateral trade and economic relations have continued to develop, while the volume of trade and investment has continued to rise, Chen said.

He noted that Denmark is China's second largest source of investment, and third largest trading partner and source of technology imports among the Nordic countries.

"Since the outbreak of the international financial crisis, the bilateral economic and trade cooperation has suffered some negative impact. However, the overall trend of development has not changed between Denmark and China," he said.

Chen expressed the hope that together, Denmark and China would build a better future for trade and economic cooperation with the support of both governments, joint efforts of business leaders, and under the principle of win-win and common development.
