China, Belgium eye closer cooperation


09:00, September 21, 2012

BRUSSELS, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and Belgian Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo met here Thursday and agreed to enhance bilateral cooperation.

Since China and Belgium established foreign relations four decades ago, the two sides have seen their mutual understanding and trust steadily increasing, said Wen.

Faced with the international financial crisis, he added, the two sides should turn the crisis into an opportunity to further deepen mutually beneficial cooperation and inject fresh vigor into the development of bilateral relations.

China attaches great importance to Belgium's influence within the EU and on international affairs, said Wen, adding that Beijing is ready to work with Brussels to enhance dialogues and coordination on hot-button and global issues.

In view of the current unfavorable global economic conditions, he said, China and Belgium should remain committed to keeping their markets open and jointly resist all forms of protectionism.

China welcomes more investment from Belgian enterprises, and hopes that Belgium will continue facilitating Chinese businesses' exploration in the Belgian market, Wen added.
