On September 6, 2014, Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with Governor of Tasmania Will Hodgman in Hobart, capital of Tasmania, Australia.

Wang Yi expressed that the development of the China-Australia relations has brought tangible benefits to the two countries and peoples. In recent years, the relations between China and Tasmania have developed well. China has become the largest trading partner and export market of Tasmania. Wang Yi said that local exchanges are an integral part of the China-Australia relations and have enriched the social basis of the bilateral relations. The friendly provincial and state relations between Tasmania and Fujian Province, China have gone through 33 years and yielded fruitful results.

Wang Yi expressed that the Chinese side attaches great importance to the China-Australia relations and also commits to promoting cooperation between China and Tasmania. China is willing to work together with friends from all walks of life in Tasmania to promote friendly exchanges and practical cooperation in economy and trade, tourism, education, Antarctic science investigation and other fields to constantly achieve new development.

Hodgman said Tasmania cherishes the fruitful cooperation with China, and hopes to expand trade scale with China and promote two-way investment. Tasmania will provide better travel conditions for Chinese tourists, attract more Chinese overseas students, promote cooperation between Tasmanian universities and China, encourage more youth to learn Chinese, deepen friendly exchanges with Fujian Province and make contributions to the development of the Australia-China relations.
