Austrian Federal Chancellor Werner Faymann will pay an official visit to China from May 5 to May 7 at the invitation of Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei announced Thursday.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the establishment of China-Austria diplomatic ties. "China-Austria relations have maintained a good momentum of development with increased high-level exchanges," said Hong at a regular press conference, adding that the two sides have conducted smooth exchanges and cooperation in several fields.

Hong hailed Austria's adherence to the one-China policy, saying China has attached great importance to the development of ties with Austria.

"China is willing to take the 40th anniversary as a new start together with Austria to enhance bilateral relations and cooperation based on mutual respect, equality and common development," Hong added.
