BEIJING, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan on Tuesday met with Mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa and former U.S. National Security Adviser Brent Scowcroft in separate meetings in Beijing.

During his meeting with Villaraigosa, Wang said recent years have seen rapid development of local exchanges and cooperation between China and the United States, which reflects the mutually beneficial nature of bilateral relations and has brought tangible benefits to people in both countries.

He hoped that Los Angeles and Chinese provinces and cities could further beef up cooperation in such areas as economy and trade, investment, science and technology, tourism, culture and education.

He said the China Association of Mayors and the U.S. Conference of Mayors should play a positive role in creating favorable conditions for cooperation between enterprises of both countries.

Villaraigosa said Los Angeles is willing to enhance cooperation with China in all fields and welcomes Chinese companies investing in the city.

On Tuesday afternoon, Wang met with Brent Scowcroft to discuss the current world economic situation and bilateral economic and trade cooperation.

Scowcroft served as the National Security Advisor to both presidents Gerald Ford and George H. W. Bush.
