"As world politics and economics undergo profound changes, China and Germany face challenges as well as opportunities to further their cooperation," the ambassador said.

"We've found that the global financial crisis and the eurozone debt problems had not weakened, but strengthened our economic ties," Wu said, "Our economies can complement each other and that means great potential in trade and investment."

He also said China this year would launch its 12th "Five-Year Plan," which would be the country's first national plan on developing a green economy. "Germany has a technological advantage in renewable energy, and the two sides can work for more tangible results in this field," Wu said.

"On major international issues, the two countries share common interests and have had extensive cooperation, both in scope and style," he said. "As two major economies, China and Germany should and can develop a closer strategic partnership."

Chinese Vice Premier Li, who is due to arrive in Germany on Thursday for a four-day visit, will meet German President Christian Wulff, Chancellor Merkel and Foreign Minister Westerwelle.

"Such high-level political contacts between top leaders clearly indicate that China-Germany relations are highly valued on both sides," the ambassador said.

"I believe Li's visit to Germany will lay solid ground for developing the two countries' relations for the whole year, pointing out directions for and pumping fresh energy into an enhanced bilateral relationship," he said.
