Wang Zhaoguo, chairman of the All China Federation of Trade Unions (ACFTU), met with labor leaders from 11 south Pacific countries in Beijing Wednesday.

The trade union leaders are attending a seminar with Chinese counterparts to discuss ways to cope with the impact on workers of economic globalization and the international economic downturn.

The Communist Party of China and the Chinese government always treated sustainable economic growth as important to the people's well-being, and closely integrated economic growth with poverty alleviation and job creation, Wang said.

Wang voiced China's hope to cement cooperation and exchanges with trade unions of the south Pacific countries in terms of safeguarding workers' rights and advancing the international labor movement.

Mele Amanaki, head of the South Pacific Oceanic Council and secretary -general of Tonga's Public Service Association, told Wang on behalf of the delegation that trade unions from the south Pacific were ready to cooperate with China.

The seminar has drawn 27 trade union leaders from 11 south Pacific countries, including Tonga, and Papua New Guinea.
