Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said Tuesday that 2010 had been marked by closer links, greater interaction and stronger cooperation between China and the world.

He made the remarks in an address at a New Year reception hosted by China's Foreign Ministry.

Noting 2010 had been an important year for the world economy to emerge from the shadow of the financial crisis and embark on the track of recovery, Yang said China and other countries had further deepened cooperation during the process of pursuing common development.

Yang said 2011 marked the start of the implementation of China's 12th five-year plan, and China would enter a crucial period in efforts to build a moderately prosperous society, and accelerate the transformation of the economic development pattern.

With common development goals, China and the rest of the world would enjoy a wider arc of cooperation and face new historic opportunities, he said.

China would "proactively adapt itself to the new developments and needs of the domestic and international situations, stay committed to the path of peaceful development, and unswervingly follow the mutually beneficial strategy of opening-up."

He said the world would continue to move towards multi-polarity, while the process of global economic recovery and reform would further evolve.

In a speech, Nolana Ta-Ama, dean of the Diplomatic Corps and Togo's ambassador to China, hailed China's diplomatic efforts in the political and economic fields towards its close neighbors, such as the Association of Southeast Asia Nations (ASEAN) and Japan, and on the Korean Peninsula in particular.

More than 400 people, including Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo, attended the reception.
