China understands the anxiety of African countries including Mauritius about their textile trade after the elimination of textile quota globally, and has been working persistently for balanced development of global textile trade.

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao made the remark in Beijing Sunday when meeting with Mauritian Prime Minister Navin Ramgoolam, who came here for the Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation held on Nov. 4-5.

The textile agreements China reached with the European Union and the United States last year, had, to a large extent, taken into account the interests of African countries in the European and American markets, Wen said.

China will continue to provide technological and managerial training in textile cooperation with African countries, so as to fulfill mutual benefit and common development, he said.

In recent years, the China-Mauritius relations have achieved remarkable progress with frequent high-level exchanges, fruitful economic and trade cooperation and close coordination in such fields as the United Nations reform and other important international problems, he said.

The two countries should enhance cooperation in infrastructure construction and tourism, he said.

Mauritius appreciated the long-time assistance China has offered, as well as China’s understanding of and support for textile trade and other issues that Mauritius has great interest in, Navin said.

He said Mauritius wishes to enhance cooperation with China in economy, trade, aviation, ocean shipping and tourism,

China and Mauritius established diplomatic relations on April 15, 1972.

Mauritius is one of China’s outbound travel destinations. Bilateral trade reached 186 million U.S. dollars in 2005.
