The two sides should "take a strategic and long-term perspective, maintain our strategic partnership and inject new impetus into the growth of our relations," "increase high-level exchanges and continue and expand consultations at various levels to increase mutual understanding and trust," and "push forward practical cooperation in all fields and explore new ways and means of cooperation," the president said.

China and Canada should also "intensify coordination on major international and regional issues, enhance consultations and cooperation on climate change, nuclear security, food security, public health security and counterterrorism and contribute our share to a more just and equitable international order," he said.

The two countries should also "respect and accommodate each other's core interests and major concerns and appropriately handle sensitive issues to ensure that our bilateral relations will move forward without disruption," the president stressed.

China and Canada should also "encourage extensive exchanges between various sectors of the two countries and increase the mutual understanding and friendship between the two peoples with a view to consolidating public support for China-Canada friendship," he added.

The president singled out trade and economic cooperation as a key component of China-Canada relations and made some proposals for the two countries to tap the great potential and bring bilateral trade and economic cooperation to a new level.
