Chinese President Hu Jintao's visit to Canada and his attendance at the Toronto G20 summit from June 23 to June 27 have successfully strengthened mutual trust and expanded cooperation, accompanying Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said on Monday.

President Hu conducted busy diplomatic activities by attending over 30 bilateral and multilateral events over the past few days, Yang said.

During his visit to Canada, Hu, viewing development of China-Canada ties from a long-term perspective, worked with different parties in an extensive, thorough and meticulous way, and profoundly explained China's important views on boosting China-Canada pragmatic cooperation in various fields and advancing development of the bilateral strategic partnership.

During the G20 summit, Hu, from a strategic height, comprehensively introduced China's stances on how to promote the all-round recovery of the global economy and guide the transformation of the G20, and helped the summit in yielding positive results in strengthening the macro-economic policy coordination between different countries, fully implementing the consensus of the previous three G20 summits and enhancing mechanism building of the G20.

President Hu's visit and attendance are far-sighted, pragmatic, effective and fruitful, and have achieved complete successes, Yang said.

During his visit to Canada, Hu, in spirit of "strengthening dialogue, boosting mutual trust, expanding cooperation and creating a better future", exchanged views extensively with the Canadian leaders and people from all walks of life, clarified strategically the importance and urgency of developing China-Canada ties in the new situation, and emphasized that both sides should stick to the correct direction of bilateral ties and make joint efforts to comprehensively push forward the China-Canada strategic partnership.

Pragmatic cooperation in various fields serves the foundation for China-Canada ties. President Hu delivered a speech on the promotion of the all-round development of the China-Canada strategic partnership.

Hu brought forward five proposals for boosting China-Canada trade and economic cooperation, which were positively responded by the Canadian side.

Both the Chinese and Canadian leaders agreed to strive to increase bilateral trade to 60 billion U.S. dollars in 2015.

Moreover, the two governments and the two countries' companies signed 10 cooperation documents on trade and economy, tourism, quality-inspection, law-enforcement, and energy and minerals.

Cultural and person-to-person exchanges are of great significance to strengthening the public foundation for China-Canada ties. Hu announced that China would establish a China Cultural Center in Canada and invite 100 local Canadian educational officers and headmasters of primary and middle schools to visit China this year and another 100 Canadian middle school students to attend a summer camp in China next year.

Various circles and public opinions in Canada responded positively to Hu's visit. They said they believed the trip had played an important role in promoting Canada-China relations, according to Yang.
