COPENHAGEN, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- China's dynamic development helps deepen the Sino-Danish comprehensive strategic partnership and encourages closer bilateral cooperation, Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt said Thursday in an interview with Xinhua, following a visit to China.

Thorning-Schmidt, who visited China from Sept. 10-13, said that she is encouraged by the direction and depth of the Sino-Danish relations, and feels these ties will deliver concrete outcomes in the years ahead.

"This was my first visit to China as Prime Minister. China is undergoing a dynamic development, which encourages increased dialogue and cooperation between Denmark and China in many fields," she said in the exclusive interview about her first official visit to China.

She pointed out that the biggest rewards lay in collaboration on "sustainable development and green energy, which is an important engine for growth" as well as sectors such as culture, tourism, and education.

During her trip, Thorning-Schmidt met with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao in Tianjin, where she delivered a keynote speech at the Summer Davos Forum. She also met with China's Vice Premier Wang Qishan, who urged stronger economic cooperation with Denmark.

For her part, Thorning-Schmidt called for more collaboration in sectors where the two countries have joint strengths, for example, shipping and renewable energy, at different forums during her trip.

"We focus on several sectors in China, where we know that Danish companies are frontrunners and where there is particular potential for further cooperation to mutual benefit," Thorning-Schmidt said to Xinhua, when asked which sectors Denmark will focus on in future to boost bilateral economic ties.

"Food (industry) is a good example. Danish farmers produce high quality food in accordance with some of the strictest regulations in the world. Other sectors include climate and environment, urban planning, health and pharmaceuticals, and science and technology," she added.
