Ruling parties of China, Spain pledge stronger ties

THE ruling parties of China and Spain are committed to seeking stronger relations, according to a statement issued by the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee International Department today.

The pledge came out of the meeting between senior leader of the Communist Party of China (CPC) He Guoqiang and Deputy General Secretary of the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) Jose Blanco on Wednesday, said the statement.

He, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, hailed the sound relations between the two ruling parties and appreciated PSOE's commitment to Spain-China friendship.

He proposed the two parties take a strategic view of their exchange and cooperation, strengthen exchange mechanisms and communication on major issues in a bid to inject a vitality to the country-to-country relations.

Blanco, also development minister, said PSOE-CPC ties enjoyed a solid foundation and huge potential. He said the matured inter-party relations worked for the overall Spain-China ties.

Both pledged to make continued efforts to party-to-party ties and deepen substantive cooperation.

After the meeting, He and Blanco held a seminar with more than 20 Spanish entrepreneurs. He briefed them on China's economy and introduced some policies in response to concerns of some Spanish entrepreneurs on exploring the Chinese market.

He said businesses in China and Spain could complement each other and work more closely while tackling the global economic downturn, exploring markets in both countries and around the world.

Blanco said the Spanish people admired China's thousand-year-long culture, the industrious people and the economic boom.

The development minister said the Spanish business would like to bring their strengths in infrastructure and clean energy to China's economic development.

Some Spanish entrepreneurs reviewed their cooperation with Chinese partners and presented their perspective on further exploring the Chinese market.

He concluded the Spain tour on Friday. After a stopover in Greek, He will visit Jordan and Mongolia.
