The two nations should harness respective strengths to promote the healthy development of the China-Britain comprehensive strategic partnership with concrete steps, Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan told the Fourth China-UK Economic and Financial Dialogue.
Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, who co-chaired the conference with Wang, said the talks were aimed at, among others, broadening bilateral trade and investment, strengthening cooperation against protectionism in international trade and maintaining financial stability.
Following the cooperative spirit, Beijing and London agreed at the forum to deepen cooperation in trade and investment, especially in such areas as infrastructure, advanced manufacturing, new energy, energy conservation and environmental protection, and work hard to bring bilateral trade to 100 billion U.S. dollars by 2015.
The two sides also pledged to step up financial cooperation and start negotiations over their capital market audit oversight mechanisms in a bid to keep the capital markets in both countries in good shape.
Britain reaffirmed its commitment to encourage the EU to recognize China's full market economy status as soon as possible, and also voiced support for greater use of the Chinese currency in international trade and its inclusion in the International Monetary Fund's special drawing rights basket.
