Former Chilean President Eduardo Frei Monday described the current relations between his country and China as "excellent."

Frei, who was Chile's president from 1994 to 2000 and currently a senator, told Xinhua that Chile has been a great companion of China in Latin America, and China is one of Chile's major trade partners.

He said better relations with China will help Chile move forward in its process toward a developed country in the long term.

China and Chile forged diplomatic relations in 1970.

During his administration, Frei actively promoted Chile's ties with China.

Frei said there was much room to further boost bilateral ties and ramp up the presence of Chilean companies in China.

Frei expects to be among a Senate delegation to visit China later this year.
