Myanmar new Vice President U Tin Aung Myint Oo met with visiting Chinese Vice Commerce Minister Chen Jian in Nay Pyi Taw Sunday.

The two sides discussed matters of mutually beneficial economic cooperation.

Chen is accompanying China's top political advisor Jia Qinglin on a friendly visit to Myanmar.

Jia Qinglin, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, arrived at central Myanmar's Mandalay on Saturday and had met with U Ye Myint, Chief Minister of Mandalay region, agreeing to boost regional cooperation between the two neighboring countries.

Trade between China and Myanmar has been on a sharp rise in recent years. In 2010, bilateral trade totaled 4.444 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 53.2 percent over the year before.

Myanmar is the first stop of Jia's three nation tour, which will also take him to Australia and Samoa.
