China-Costa Rica Ties Like “Growing Elephant-Ear Tree”: China President

COSTA RICA NEWS – The ties between China and Costa Rica are “like a growing elephant-ear tree of the Americas,” Chinese President Xi Jinping said Wednesday, using the eye-catching local plant to depict the friendly relations between the two geographically far-apart countries.

solis-xi-brazilXi’s comments were made during the  presidential meeting between leaders from Latin America, the Caribbean and China being held in Brazil,  by the members of the group formed by Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador and Antigua and Barbuda, CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States),  and the presidents of the member countries of Unasur (Union of South American Nations) and Mexico.

Costa Rica President Solís is currently pro tempore (rotating) president of CELAC.

In a meeting with Costa Rican President Luis Guillermo Solis, Xi said that China is ready to work with Costa Rica in an effort to make the root of political mutual trust deeper, foster the bulk of mutually beneficial cooperation stronger and nurture the leaves of people-to-people communication blossoming, “thus making the whole tree bear good fruits.”

Xi stressed the two sides should maintain high-level exchanges and strengthen communications between governments, legislatures and political parties.

The two countries should “continue to render mutual support on major issues concerning the mutual core interests and enhance communication and coordination on such major global and regional issues as climate change and sustainable growth,” he added.

On economic cooperation, Xi said the two countries could make good use of the China-Costa Rica free-trade agreement, improve the bilateral trading mix and strengthen cooperation on infrastructure, agriculture, science and technology and clean energy.

“China is willing to import more commodities from Costa Rica,” he added.

He also encouraged the two sides to increase cooperation and exchanges in cultural area and among localities and young people.

In the meantime, Xi thanked Costa Rica for its endeavor to promote China-Latin America cooperation as a whole, in particular for its preparatory work for the China-Latin American leaders’ meeting, due to be held in Brasilia Thursday.

Noting that both Costa Rica and China love peace and pursue progress, Solís said Costa Rica appreciated China’s support and assistance for the country’s economic development and the improvement of people’ s livelihood.

Costa Rica is ready to strengthen political exchange, expand economic and trade cooperation and promote people-to-people exchanges with China, he said, adding that his country hopes to build a “Great Wall” of solidarity and cooperation between the two countries.
