Senior political advisor Li Jinhua met with a delegation of Myanmar's Union Solidarity and Development Party, led by U Soe Naing, on Monday.

Li, vice chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee, met with the delegation at Beijing's Great Hall of the People on Monday afternoon.

Li reviewed the growth of China-Myanmar ties since the two neighbors forged diplomatic relations in 1950.

Bordered by China on the northeast, Myanmar shares a border of more than 2,200 kilometers with China.

Li said China would like to work more closely with Myanmar in the areas of energy, transportation and agriculture.

Li said the Communist Party of China (CPC) would like to share its experience in running the country with Myanmar's Union Solidarity and Development Party.

Myanmar's Union Solidarity and Development Party was founded on April 29, 2010.

Soe Naing extended his congratulations to the CPC on its upcoming 90th birthday, which falls on July 1.

Soe Naign said Myanmar takes its ties with China very seriously and is pleased about the establishment of the Myanmar-China comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership.

Soe Naign said Myanmar's Union Solidarity and Development Party would like to increase exchanges and cooperation with the CPC.

The delegation is visiting China at the invitation of the International Department of the CPC Central Committee.
