HAMBURG, Germany, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- Sino-German scientific and technological cooperation has come a long way after more than three decades of joint efforts and is heading towards deeper and more sustainable levels, China's Minister of Science and Technology Wan Gang said here on Thursday.

Speaking on the sidelines of the fifth Hamburg Summit, Europe's largest Sino-European business conference, Wan told Xinhua that fruitful results have been seen in joint research and exchanges since China and Germany agreed on scientific and technological cooperation in 1978.

The two countries have conducted in-depth cooperation in various fields including sophisticated manufacturing, information technology, green energy, the auto industry and high speed railways, Wan said, adding that the cooperation was still deepening.

"Chinese and German scientific and technological institutes have been cooperating with each other to integrate production, teaching, and research and establish joint research centers and innovative research centers in order to realize deeper and more lasting development," the minister said.

Wan is also the vice-chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference National Committee, the top political advisory body. He was invited by the summit as a representative of the Chinese government.

He noted that the second round of Chinese-German intergovernmental consultations co-chaired by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Aug. 30 this year saw the signing of more than a dozen of cooperation agreements, covering fields such as energy, biotechnology, environment and ocean and polar research.
