BEIJING, Oct. 24 (Xinhua) -- China's top legislative body, the National People's Congress (NPC), has launched a regular exchange mechanism with the Parliament of the Republic of South Africa, according to top legislator Wu Bangguo.

Wu, chairman of the NPC Standing Committee, hailed the establishment of the mechanism during a meeting on Monday with Nomaindia Mfeketo, deputy speaker of the National Assembly of South Africa, who is here to inaugurate the program.

Exchanges and cooperation between the NPC and the South African parliament have recorded great progress as overall relations between the two nations are improving, Wu said.

He proposed that the two sides increase exchanges at various levels and in fields such as legislation, supervision and governance.

Mfeketo said China is a reliable friend of her country, and the South African parliament will work with the NPC to contribute to the development of bilateral ties.
