BUCHAREST, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- Romania, along with partners from China and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), want to finalize cooperation in agriculture to create a favorable environment for common projects and programs, Deputy Prime Minister and Agriculture Minister Daniel Constantin said on Wednesday.


Constantin made the remarks at the opening of the 9th Agro-trade and Economic Cooperation Forum between China and Central-Eastern European Countries.


"China represents a priority as far as Romania's policy for developing relations with the Asian states is concerned," said the official, adding that Romania had become more and more visible on the Chinese market with more Chinese companies interested in investing especially in Romania's agricultural sector.


Chinese Agriculture Minister Han Changfu said China is willing to share its experiences in rural development with countries in Central and Eastern Europe to jointly promote the development of modern agriculture, increase global agricultural production, and improve the level of food security.


"China and CEE countries are facing important opportunities for development cooperation," Han added, stressing that cooperation in agriculture between the regions would also strengthen multilateral and bilateral relations.


The three-day forum, being held for the first time outside of China, will include debates on topics such as food security, climate change and implementing sustainable rural development.
