The China Economic and Social Council (CESC) would expand cooperation with the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), a senior Chinese official said Sunday.
Wang Gang, president of the CESC and vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, made the remarks during a meeting with EESC president Staffan Nisson.
Wang spoke highly of the growth of China-EU relations, noting that current China-EU relations were maintaining good development momentum.
Wang expressed his hope that the current mechanism and platform for cooperation between the two sides can be better utilized to promote the growth of China and the EU's comprehensive and strategic partnership.
Echoing Wang's views, Nisson vowed to step up bilateral cooperation to a higher level.
