BEIJING, Oct. 8 (Xinhua) -- China and Netherlands on Monday vowed to further promote relations and enhance cooperation in trade, tourism, culture and modern agriculture.

The pledge came out of a meeting between top political advisor Jia Qinglin and Dutch Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal, who is visiting China from Oct. 8 to 9.

Bilateral relations have witnessed significant development since their establishment 40 years ago and are facing new opportunities in the future, said Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the country's top political advisory body.

He said China is ready to further enhance political mutual trust with the Netherlands, take each other's core interests and major concerns into consideration, expand comprehensive trade relations and conduct closer cooperation in tourism, education and culture.

Jia said the two sides should prioritize the development of people-to-people and cultural exchanges and push China-Netherlands relations to a new high.
