14:53, October 20, 2011

BEIJING, Oct. 20 (Xinhua) -- Senior political advisor Bai Lichen pledged Thursday to bolster China-Austria relations.

During a meeting with a business delegation from Austria, the vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) spoke highly of improvements made in bilateral ties since the two states established diplomatic relations in 1971.

The delegation was headed by Christoph Leitl, president of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber.

The two nations should take advantage of the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations to expand their cooperation in new energy and other emerging sectors, Bai said.

Leitl echoed Bai's remarks and also pledged to make joint efforts with the Chinese side to improve economic ties between the two countries.
