The ruling parties of China and Egypt vowed Sunday to promote exchanges in governance and strengthen cooperation in various fields.
Wang Gang, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee held talks with Egypt's National Democratic Party (NDP) Secretary-General Safwat el-Sherif on Sunday.
Wang said it is conducive to the development of ties between China and Egypt that the two parties strengthen exchanges in state governance and administration experiences.
The enhancement of exchanges also contributes to furthering practical cooperation between the two countries in various fields, Wang said.
He added that the CPC has always treated ties with the NDP from a strategic height and regarded the NDP as an important strategic cooperative partner in both Africa and the Arab world.
For his part, Sherif said the NDP is willing to strengthen friendly exchanges with the CPC, and further develop the NDP-CPC ties.
Wang, also Vice Chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference National Committee, the country's top political advisory body, headed a Chinese delegation on a visit to Cairo starting from Saturday.
Wang has met with President Hosni Mubarak earlier in the day.
