Chinese Vice Premier Hui Liangyu on Friday suggest China and the World Bank (WB) strengthen collaboration in the field of capital, knowledge and human resources.
Hui made the remarks at a meeting with a WB delegation consisting of finance ministers, central bank governors and senior officials from seven Latin American countries, such as Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico.
Hui praised WB's efforts to push forward global economic cooperation, common development and poverty reduction, and spoke highly of the friendly relations between China and Latin America.
China hopes to work together with the Latin American countries for a long-range, stable, friendly and cooperative relationship, Hui said.
The vice premier also briefed the guest on China's poverty alleviation, economic and social progress.
Pamela Cox, head of the delegation and WB vice president for Latin America and the Caribbean, said strengthening collaboration between the WB and China enriches the WB's theory on development and contributes greatly to the global fight against poverty.
