Chinese President Xi Jinping has met with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard and New Zealand Prime Minister John Key at the Boao Forum in Hainan province.
They have vowed to deepen cooperation, strengthen mutual trust and jointly safeguard regional peace, stability and prosperity.
When meeting with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, Xi Jinping said China will increase its support to Cambodia on infrastructure development and irrigation systems, and expand its assistance to projects and preferential loans.

Both sides have agreed to set up an intergovernmental committee to the action plan on the implementation of the China-Cambodia Comprehensive Strategic Partnership of Cooperation.
Hun Sen appreciated the help provided by China and says Cambodia will continue to support China on its core interests and play a positive role in maintaining the healthy development of ASEAN-China relations.
When meeting with Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, the Chinese President said he hopes the two sides can step up communication, expand cooperation and speed up the bilateral Free Trade Agreement to diversify trade and investment.
Gillard said Australia hopes it can become a reliable and stable resource supplier to China and expand cooperation in agriculture, finance and mutual investments.

And both sides should seek new growth points in agricultural science, food safety, energy conservation, the creativity industry and finance. The Chinese government encourages Chinese enterprises to invest in New Zealand.
Key echoed Xi Jinping’s goal to achieve the more than 1.6 billion US Dollar trade volume and said New Zealand welcomes Chinese businesses to invest in agriculture and dairy products.
