China, Vanuatu pledge to boost cooperation

Hailing Natuman as an old friend of the Chinese people, Xi said the Vanuaaku Party, of which Natuman is a founding member, was the first political party in the Pacific island region to establish relations with the Communist Party of China. He added that the party has made a great contribution to China-Vanuatu ties.

Xi said the Chinese side respects the Vanuatu people's choice of development path and will back the island country's efforts to safeguard its rights and advance sustainable development.

Xi said China welcomes more exports from Vanuatu and will support Chinese companies cooperating with Vanuatu partners in agriculture, fishery, transportation, telecommunications, clean energy and infrastructure.

As Vanuatu prepares for the 2017 Pacific Mini Games, Xi said China will share its experience with the island country in hosting sporting events.
