Kazakhstan and China have agreed to strengthen practical cooperation in various fields and further promote bilateral exchanges.
China is ready to expand cooperation with Kazakhstan in such areas as trade and economy, investment, agriculture, tourism and culture, Zhang Chunxian, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, said here Tuesday.
Thanks to the efforts of the leaders of the two countries, the China-proposed Silk Road Economic Belt dovetails with Kazakhstan's new economic policy, called the Bright Road, Zhang said while meeting with Kazakhstan's Prime Minister Karim Masimov.
Capacity cooperation between the two sides has achieved notable progress, and the development of Kazakhstan-China relations has shown strong momentum, added Zhang, who is also the secretary of the CPC Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Regional Committee.
Masimov, for his part, said that China is Kazakhstan's friendly neighbor and strategic partner, and thanks to the joint efforts of the leaders of the two sides, the two countries have maintained a high level of cooperation and exchanges.
Kazakhstan is now making active efforts to implement the consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries in a bid to promote practical bilateral cooperation in various areas, Masimov said.
