THE HAGUE, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- China's top political advisor Jia Qinglin met here with Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs Uri Rosenthal on Friday and they agreed to work together to boost bilateral cooperation.

Jia, chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee, said that bilateral cooperation has produced fruitful results. The Netherlands is China's second biggest trade partner in the European Union.

Jia hoped that the Netherlands will continue its positive policy toward China and maintain the consistency of its Chinese policy.

On the China-Europe relations, Jia said trade volume between China and European countries reached 480 billion U.S. dollars last year despite the international financial crisis, showing the enormous potential in their future cooperation.

For his part, Rosenthal said the Netherlands has always attached great importance to its ties with China.

The Netherlands is the second stop of Jia's three-nation European tour, which has brought him to Greece. Jia will also visit Germany.
