Chinese President Xi Jinping met with Portuguese President Eduardo Ferro Rodrigues on Wednesday in Lisbon for talks.
Xi Jinping said at the meeting that Portugal is a good friend and partner in the EU. In recent years, the Chinese National People’s Congress has had close exchanges with the Portuguese Parliament and achieved positive results. China supports that both legislatures would learn from each other in areas such as legislative oversight and state administration. Both sides should enhance exchanges and consultation in multilateral organizations such as the parliamentary union of different countries, safeguard common interests and contribute to peace, development and prosperity of the world.
Rodrigues replied that Portugal praised China’s development and achievements, and wished to expand cooperation in areas such as business, trade, human resources and culture. The Portuguese Parliament will work to deepen relations with China.
