Morales, Li Join Forces to Boost Industrialization in Bolivia

BEIJING – Bolivian President Evo Morales and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang agreed to boost bilateral cooperation with the aim of increasing imports of high quality Bolivian products and improving industrialization of the Latin American country, state news agency Xinhua reported on Wednesday.

The two leaders met Tuesday as part of Morales’ official visit to Beijing, where he also met with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, with whom he signed an agreement to turn both countries into strategic partners.

Li expressed China’s willingness to continue working with Bolivia to take advantage of the new opportunities offered by the development of bilateral relations and to promote cooperation in areas such as the economy, trade, tourism and culture.

Li also stressed the need to strengthen production capacity and improve the development and use of resources to advance the country’s industrialization.

China will increase imports of high-quality Bolivian products after signing agreements that will open the Chinese market to Bolivian quinoa and coffee.

He stressed that cooperation between China and Bolivia is an essential part of South-South Cooperation and reiterated China’s willingness to continue working with Latin American countries to safeguard common interests and promote peace and stability.

Morales, for his part, said that when he assumes the rotating presidency of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) next year, he will work towards actively promoting CELAC’s cooperation with China.

Morales’ visit to China led to the signing of a strategic partnership agreement – a bond that China establishes with those countries with which it seeks a special political and economic link – plus seven other financial, cultural, commercial and infrastructure agreements.
