GUANGZHOU, Nov. 6 (Xinhua) — The third session of the China-Brazil High-level Coordination and Cooperation Committee took place on Wednesday, with both sides agreeing to further their comprehensive strategic partnership.

The meeting was co-chaired by Chinese Vice Premier Wang Yang and Brazilian Vice President Michel Temer in Guangzhou, capital of south China’s Guangdong Province.

Both sides had an in-depth exchange of views on advancing their partnership in politics, trade, finance, science and technology, education and culture and reached wide consensus.

“The China-Brazil relationship is experiencing the most active and fruitful period in history. Facing tasks of growing our economies, restructuring and improving people’s well-being, China and Brazil have increasing shared mutual needs and interests,” Wang said.

China is willing to work with Brazil to implement the consensus reached between the two heads of states and give a bigger role to the high-level coordination and cooperation committee to further the bilateral strategic partnership, Wang said.

Brazil and China will celebrate the 40th anniversary of diplomatic ties next year. Brazil hopes to expand dealings with China, implement the ten-year cooperation plan signed in 2012 and learn from China’s experiences in infrastructure development, Temer said.

Both sides signed cooperation documents on aerospace, agriculture and quality supervision after the meeting.
