Premier Li Keqiang met with visiting Brazilian President Jair Messias Bolsonaro at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on Oct 25.

As major developing countries and newly emerging economies, China and Brazil are important partners to each other, the Premier said. Since the establishment of diplomatic ties, the two countries have carried out fruitful cooperation and made breakthroughs in Latin America in many fields including trade.

Premier Li said China will take the opportunity of the 45th anniversary of diplomatic ties to deepen political trust and expand pragmatic cooperation with Brazil to bring more benefits to the peoples of the two countries and make more contributions to world peace and global economy.

The Premier noted that China and Brazil are each other's development opportunities. Under the complicated international situation and mounting downward pressure on the global economy, China is willing to expand two-way opening-up and advance cooperation with Brazil in various areas such as energy.

China supports competitive and reputable Chinese companies to participate in Brazilian infrastructure construction in accordance with market and commercial principles, according to the Premier. The country will also expand imports of Brazilian high-quality products, and China hopes Brazil will ease market access for Chinese goods such as aquatic products.

Premier Li said that China appreciates the facilitation measures Brazil has provided to Chinese visitors and will expand people-to-people exchanges and strengthen cooperation with Brazil in all aspects.

Bolsonaro said Brazil highly values relations with China. Brazil could not achieve development without the participation of the world, especially China. The economies of Brazil and China are highly complementary, he said.

As Brazil becomes more open, it hopes to build a closer relationship with China with enhanced cooperation and become one of China's important partners, Bolsonaro said.

Brazil welcomes Chinese enterprises to invest in Brazil in fields such as energy. Brazil is willing to take more measures on visa facilitation and increase personnel exchanges for better bilateral relations, said Bolsonaro.

State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi and He Lifeng, vice-chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and head of the National Development and Reform Commission, also attended the meeting.
