BEIJING, Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Dejiang met here Thursday with Stephen Elop, president and chief executive officer of Nokia, the world's biggest mobile phone producer.

Zhang praised Nokia's efforts over the years in promoting the development of China's telecommunications industry.

China would further develop the new generation of information technology according to the Proposal for Formulating the 12th Five-Year (2011-2015) Program for National Economic and Social Development, Zhang said.

This would bring new growth opportunities to Nokia and other international telecommunications enterprises and companies, which have business in China, Zhang said.

Zhang hoped Nokia could expand cooperation with China's telecommunications operators to promote the launch of more Time Division Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access (TD-SCDMA) terminal products.

Zhang also hoped Nokia would actively take part in research and development of new generation information technology.

Stephen Elop thanked the Chinese government for its support to Nokia and reiterated Nokia's support to China's TD-SCDMA technology, pledging that his company was willing to enhance communication and cooperation with its Chinese partners.
