COPENHAGEN - Chinese President Hu Jintao concluded his state visit to Denmark on Saturday and left Copenhagen for Los Cabos, Mexico to attend the G20 summit scheduled for June 18-19.
Hu started his visit to the Nordic country Thursday, the first by a Chinese head of state since China and Denmark established diplomatic ties 62 years ago.
During his visit, Hu met Queen Margrethe II and Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt on enhancing all-round cooperation between the two countries.
Hu and the Danish leaders also exchanged views on the current international economic situation and the eurozone debt crisis.
The two sides signed a host of cooperation documents, covering investment, tariffs, energy, environmental protection, agriculture, education and culture.
China and Denmark have conducted fruitful cooperation in the fields of politics, economy, culture, education, and science and technology since the establishment of bilateral diplomatic relations in 1950. In 2008, the two nations established a comprehensive strategic partnership.
Denmark is now China's third largest trading partner in the Nordic region. In 2011, two-way trade between the two countries reached 9.2 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 18 percent year-on-year.
In Los Cabos, Hu and other leaders from G20 members will attend a two-day summit which will focus on global growth and stability as the fragile world economic recovery is being threatened by the eurozone crisis and other problems.
The G20 leaders will exchange views on the global economic situation, the strengthening of the international financial system, development, trade and employment, and find out ways to boost global growth.
