[Photo/Xinhua]German Chancellor Angela Merkel began a two-day visit to China on Thursday, her eighth visit since 2005. The frequent contacts between the two countries at the top level are emblematic of the closeness of ties, as well as their joint commitment to continuously upgrade their pragmatic cooperation.On Thursday, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and the German chancellor witnessed the signing of 13 agreements in such fields as youth exchanges, finance and industries.
It is obvious that both Beijing and Berlin have attached great importance to each other in recent years, and their joint efforts to constantly deepen and strengthen the foundations for bilateral interaction have paid off.
Over the years, the two exporting powerhouses have learned to tap the potential of having complementary economies. Their cooperation today is a blend of the Chinese market and German technology and an alliance of speed and quality.
The rosy picture in Sino-German cooperation has been the result of deepening political mutual trust and mutual support.
Merkel said that Germany would be pleased if the International Monetary Fund included Chinas currency in its Special Drawing Rights currency basket, and her country would support a “rapid” conclusion of the EU-China investment treaty, which would open the way for a feasibility study on free trade talks between China and the European Union.
As two influential countries in the world arena, China and Germany have also conducted close collaboration on issues of global significance. Li and Merkel agreed on Thursday there must be a political solution to the crisis in Syria.
As such, we have every reason to believe Sino-German reciprocal cooperation will continue to yield fruitful outcomes.8.03KRelated StoriesChinese premier holds talks with German chancellorCity uses German education modelSino-German bonds continue to advanceGerman chancellor to visit ChinaMost Viewed Todays Top NewsAppropriate path leads to sustainable future growthTravel agencies must not shirk their dutiesTracks laid for express train of developmentFruits from reciprocal trustClear and present dangers from US self-appointed roleForum TrendsShould you pay your children to do chores?Should grandparents be paid for babysitting?Have you ever been ripped off while traveling?Should teachers accept gifts from students?Is military training necessary for freshmen?Should children endorse products?Should a woman propose to a man?ColumnistsClear and present dangers from US self-appointed roleA roar beyond raceFeatured ContributorsXis UK visit: A sea change in international relationsXi’s UK visit will promote world peaceStar BloggersTrip to Xinjiang By AnmingThere are powerful sentences you might come across when living in China.
