Commentary: President Hu's Danish tour to usher in new era of bilateral ties


15:27, June 14, 2012

BEIJING, June 14 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao on Thursday embarks on a trip to Denmark with a delegation of ministers and senior officials.

As the first state visit by a Chinese president to the Nordic nation, President Hu's three-day tour is set to usher in a new era of bilateral ties.

China and Denmark, though geologically far apart, have seen their friendship growing ever closer in the past 62 years, starting from 1950 when Denmark became one the first Western countries to establish diplomatic ties with the People's Republic of China.

The China-Denmark relations have been constantly enriched with the signing of an array of cooperation deals on trade, aviation, shipping, agriculture, and environment, among others.

Hu's visit will undoubtedly highlight the great opportunities for the two sides to broaden and deepen their cooperation. China has put sustainable growth high on its agenda of national development and Demark has a lot to offer in this regard.

As an export-oriented economy, Denmark has found China the biggest buyer of its goods outside the European Union. From 2005 to 2009, China's annual imports from Denmark grew 50 percent.

With Hu's visit, the figure will probably soon be overshined by more robust growth in bilateral trade as the trip will further match China's strong demand for clean technologies and green solutions with the rising interests among Danish entrepreneurs to tap into the market of emerging economies.

It's widely believed that Hu's visit would not only further facilitate the trade ties but provide fresh impetus to the development of the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries.
