The proposals include expanding bilateral trade; promoting two-way investment; deepening cooperation on energy and resources; exploring new areas of cooperation and joining hands in opposing all forms of protectionism.

In regard to the global financial crisis, Hu said that as a responsible member of the international community, China would continue to actively participate in international cooperation, appropriately handle risks and challenges and make greater contribution to the full recovery of the world economy.

China will maintain close coordination and cooperation with Canada and other parties to help bring about positive and practical outcomes at the upcoming fourth G20 summit, he said.

Canadian Prime Minister Harper said in his speech that the strategic partnership between Canada and China had been growing constantly since President Hu's visit to Ottawa in 2005. Bilateral cooperation in all fields has been strengthened and cooperation agreements have been signed in the areas of trade, tourism, environmental protection, law enforcement, energy and others. China has now become Canada's second largest trading partner.

The prime minister said Canada and China both play an important role in promoting the development of each other as well as the global economic growth. The two countries have great potential in economic cooperation, especially in the sectors of resources and energy, notably in the development of clean energy.
