The development of China and India provided opportunities rather than posed challenges to each other, senior Communist Party of China (CPC) official Zhou Yongkang said here Monday.

Zhou, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks while meeting with ruling Indian National Congress party President Sonia Gandhi and party General Secretary Rahul Gandhi.

Both China and India believed the world was big enough to accommodate the common development of China and India, Zhou said, adding the Chinese side was happy for every achievement that India made in its development.

As for the China-India trade, which is expected to reach 60 billion U.S. dollars this year, Zhou said there was still great potential for the two big emerging powers to tap.

For the two most populous countries in the world, the 500,000 personnel exchanges between China and India every year was far from enough, Zhou said.

He hoped both sides could deepen the strategic cooperative partnership further, strengthen practical cooperation in various fields, and increase personnel exchanges at different levels.
