China seeks larger investment and tourism ties with India

Bishkek: China wants to forge closer development partnership with India, particularly in areas such as  investment, industries and tourism, and jointly promote regional inter-connectivity through construction of the Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar Economic  Corridor  to make a bigger cake of  common interests.

Chinese president Xi Jinping said the two nations need to constantly broaden  the channels for cooperation, as cooperation between the two countries can  not only boost their respective development, but also will contribute to  peace, stability and prosperity in Asia and the world.

Xi made the remarks on Thursday during his meeting with Prime Minister  Narendra Modi ahead of the 19th summit of the Shanghai Cooperation  Organization in the Kyrgyz capital, Xinhua reported.

As important representatives of developing nations and emerging  market economies, China and India, said Xi, need to come together to  safeguard free trade and multilateralism, and protect the legitimate  development rights of developing countries.

Modi also said the two sides should explore new sectors for cooperation, and properly handle their  differences.

Noting that next year marks the 70th anniversary of bilateral  diplomatic ties, Modi said the two countries need to make a good plan  for celebration to step up their people-to-people exchanges. (UNI)
