BEIJING - A Chinese oil pipeline project in Myanmar can boost the local economy, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said on Friday.

"The oil pipeline project has undergone scientific study and strict examination and conforms with local regulations and laws," spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a daily press briefing.

Hua made the comments when asked about a Chinese-invested oil pipeline to be built in Myanmar.

Hua said China and Myanmar have carried out trade and economic cooperation on the basis of equality and mutual benefit.

"We believe such mutually beneficial cooperation works for the local economy. We hope the project can go on smoothly," Hua said.
