BEIJING, Feb. 27 (Xinhua) -- Vice Premier Li Keqiang met with World Bank President Robert Zoellick in Beijing on Monday, vowing joint efforts to facilitate reforms on global economic governance and bridging the North-South gap.

"The outbreak and spreading of the global financial crisis has revealed the drawbacks of the global economy in mechanism, policy and growth pattern," Li said.

"What we are facing has not been a pure economic and financial crisis, thus the international community should jointly explore the correct path for development," he told Zoellick, who is in Beijing to launch a joint study on China's economic opportunities and strategic choices for the years ahead.

Li said China had carried out all-round, win-win and fruitful cooperation with the World Bank over the past 30 years, and in particular, strengthened cooperation in joint studies in recent years.

The vice premier pledged joint efforts with the World Bank and other countries to promote reform on global economic governance and bridging the North-South gap.

Zoellick said the World Bank was ready to further cooperation with China and jointly promote global poverty alleviation and development.
