China stands ready to further enhance policy communication with Surinam and explore the ways to deepen practical cooperation in various fields within the “Belt and Road” framework, in a bid to achieve common development.

Thanking China for providing long-term great support and generous assistance for development in various fields of the country including economy and society, the Surinamese side expressed that the country always regards China as its most important cooperation partner, and is willing to actively participate in the “Belt and Road” initiative, as well as constantly deepen bilateral friendly cooperative relations, so as to make a good demonstration for countries of different territorial sizes to build equal and mutually beneficial relations.

During his visit, Qin Gang inspected the site of Sophia's Lust Community Center funded by China, and met the local press with Minister of Foreign Affairs Yildiz Pollack-Beighle.
