ASHGABAT, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- A senior Chinese official put forward a four-point proposal on Sunday for Chinese entrepreneurs in Turkmenistan to contribute to the further development of bilateral cooperation.

Zhou Yongkang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China's (CPC) Central Committee, made the proposal when meeting with these entrepreneurs.

Relations between China and Turkmenistan have witnessed healthy and stable development since the two countries established diplomatic ties 20 years ago, Zhou said, adding that expansion of pragmatic cooperation is key to the development of relations.

The Chinese entrepreneurs should act on the consensus reached by leaders of the two countries, continue to boost Sino-Turkmen energy cooperation and implement such projects as gas field development, pipeline construction and gas transportation, he said.

Zhou encouraged Chinese enterprises to expand cooperation in non-resource sectors and bring into full play their advantages in construction, machinery and financing to actively involve in cooperation with Turkmenistan in all fields.

The Chinese official also suggested that Chinese enterprises should work hard in improving company image, safeguarding national reputation and lifting the credibility of Chinese companies, products and brands. He asked the Chinese employees to obey the Turkmen laws and respect local customs and traditions.

Zhou urged the Chinese enterprises to promote international competitiveness, strengthen the capability of transnational business management and foster in practice a team of international trade talents.

On Sunday, the Chinese official also visited a program of the China National Petroleum Corporation after he arrived in Ashgabat late Saturday night.

Turkmenistan is the last leg of Zhou's three-nation Asia tour, which has taken him to Singapore and Afghanistan. Most viewed commentaries
