China and Norway signed Friday eight documents on cooperation in finance, energy resources, environmental protection and culture.
He Guoqiang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and head of the CPC's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, witnessed the signing ceremony.
The senior CPC official also attended a trade forum of entrepreneurs from the two countries and put forward following proposals for expanding the bilateral trade:
The two nations should use the opportunity of their Free Trade Area negotiations to raise the level of trade and economic cooperation and strengthen cooperation in petrochemical industries, shipbuilding and fishery.
Meanwhile, efforts should also be made to expand cooperation in energy conservation and renewable energy, and deepen mutual investments and cooperation in labor services.
Later on Friday, the senior CPC official met with Norwagian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, who said the signing of those eight documents showed there is a broad prospect for China-Norway trade cooperation.【1】 【2】
