On October 24, 2008, Vice Premier Li Keqiang, also member of the Standing Committee of the CCCPC Political Bureau, met at the Great Hall of the People with Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, who is here for the seventh summit of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM).

As to the current international financial turmoil, the world economic slowdown and other global issues concerning energy, grain, environment, natural disasters and poverty, Li said all countries in the world should work together to increase dialogue and consultation and jointly respond to these problems. While maintaining its stable and comparatively rapid economic growth, China would also promote economic restructuring and change of economic development pattern, strengthen economic vitality, and improve capacity to resist risks, in a bid to contribute to world economic stability, the vice premier said.

Li said China and Sweden enjoyed increasing cooperation in various areas, with close economic and trade relations and fruitful exchanges in science and technology, education and environmental protection. China valued the relations with Sweden, and was ready to work with this European nation to push forward the bilateral friendly cooperation in line with the principle of mutual respect, equality and mutual benefits.

Hailing the smooth development of Sweden-China friendly cooperation, Reinfeldt said his country would work with China to further deepen the mutually-beneficial cooperation between the two sides.
