2019/05/31

From May 28 to 30, 2019, Vice Foreign Minister Qin Gang visited Colombia. He met respectively with Vice President Marta Lucía Ramírez, and Acting Foreign Minister Adriana Mejía of Colombia, exchanging in-depth views on bilateral relations, regional situation and other topics.

Qin Gang said that in recent years, China-Colombia relations have been developing steadily with increasingly close personnel exchanges and expanding cooperation. China and Colombia are both developing countries with strong economic complementarity and huge potential for practical cooperation. China and Colombia are fully capable of becoming cooperative partners of mutual respect, mutual benefit, win-win results and common development. The Chinese side is ready to maintain high-level exchanges with the Colombian side to provide strategic guidance for the development of China-Colombia relations. The Chinese side encourages its enterprises to take an active part in Colombia's infrastructure construction and construction in other fields, and welcomes the Colombian side's participation in the national exhibition of the second China International Import Expo. Next year marks the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Colombia. The two sides should seize this important opportunity and deepen people-to-people and cultural exchanges.

Vice President Marta Lucía Ramírez expressed admiration for China's remarkable development achievements and hoped that the two sides will step up exchanges of experience in state governance and administration in anti-corruption, poverty reduction and innovation, accelerate practical cooperation projects and raise the level of bilateral economic, trade and investment cooperation.

Acting Foreign Minister Adriana Mejía expressed gratitude for the Chinese side's support for Colombia's peace process and hoped the two sides will further deepen political mutual trust, strengthen exchanges and cooperation in economy, trade, agriculture, infrastructure construction and tourism, and continuously consolidate people-to-people friendship to push bilateral relations to a new level.

The two sides also exchanged in-depth views on the Venezuelan issue and other topics.
