Southern China's Guangdong Province and the Brazilian state of
Sao Paulo have signed a friendship agreement to enhance
understanding and exchanges, China's embassy in Brazil said
Huang Huahua, governor of Guangdong province, signed the
agreement during a visit to Sao Paulo Tuesday.
Huang met with Sao Paulo state governor Jose Serra. Both sides
expressed their willingness to boost bilateral exchanges.
Sao Paulo, the most developed state in Brazil, produces nearly
half of Brazil's industrial products.
Guangdong is one of the biggest investors in Brazil, thanks to
such Chinese companies as Gree, Huawei and ZTE, who are all
headquartered in the province.
These companies will help enhance cooperation between the two
nations, Huang said.
