On October 4, 2016 local time, Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who was paying an official visit to Ecuador, held talks with Foreign Minister Guillaume Long of Ecuador in Quito.

Wang Yi expressed that although China and Ecuador are far away from each other geographically, our hearts are tied together. Both China and Ecuador are developing countries that share similar historical experience and common goals, and we always understand, support, and help each other. In 2015, President Xi Jinping and President Rafael Correa jointly established China-Ecuador strategic partnership, which marks a new phase of bilateral relations. With fruitful results from cooperation in all fields, bilateral relations are at the best stage in history. China is willing to work with Ecuador to constantly push for comprehensive and in-depth development of bilateral relations.

Guillaume Long stated that under the joint attention paid by the two heads of state, Ecuador-China relations have realized high-level development and bilateral cooperation in fields such as politics, economy, and culture has become increasingly closer. The selfless assistance from China has made positive contributions to Ecuador’s economic and social development. Ecuador, which is now standing at the historical period of economic reform, hopes to strengthen cooperation in various fields with China, so as to achieve its objectives of accelerating industrialization and economic diversification as well as promote the sustained development of bilateral strategic partnership.

The two sides agreed to maintain close high-level exchanges as well as deepen and expand bilateral strategic cooperation. Both sides should render mutual support on issues concerning each other’s core interests and major concerns as well as support each other in exploring the development path suitable to respective national conditions. The two countries should deepen mutually beneficial cooperation, pursue common development, give full play to the advantage of economic complementarity, deepen cooperation in sectors including energy, hydroelectricity and infrastructure, and expand new cooperation areas, so as to realize mutual benefit and win-win results. The two sides should enhance coordination and cooperation in sustainable development and other major global issues and jointly safeguard the interests of developing countries.

Both sides also exchanged views on international and regional issues of common concern.
