BEIJING - Production capacity cooperation has increasingly shown up as a new "business card" of Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.

Li mentioned production capability cooperation on various occasions during his visit to Europe, and sketched a blueprint for multi-level production capability cooperation between China and Europe.

Addressing the opening ceremony of a China-EU business summit in Brussels on Monday, Li said that, in order to overcome the global financial crisis, it was an urgent matter to address the mismatch of the aggregate and structure of supply and demand.

Therefore, advancing domestic structural reform and strengthening international production capability cooperation is the key to break the bottleneck of growth, Li noted.

Currently, it is the right time to push ahead international production capability cooperation as the world sees a sluggish economic recovery, the Chinese premier said.

Through international production capability cooperation, Li said, developing countries can achieve accelerated growth with relatively low costs, China can boost the upgrading of its industrial chains, and developed countries can explore a bigger market.

It is a all-win move, he added.

At the ceremony, Li also emphasized that China and the European Union (EU), as two major influential economies in the world, have the responsibilities and commitments to join hands to advance international production capability cooperation and make contributions to robust, sustainable and balanced growth of the world economy.

Advancing international production capability cooperation follows the grand trend of the changing global industrial chains. A latest study by Britain's Standard Chartered Bank shows that the restructuring of the global supply chains will reshape the pattern of global trade in the next 10 years.

Moreover, China, which currently stands at a dominant place in global industrial chains, will be a core element to trigger change, according to the study.

During his recent visits overseas, Premier Li has been dedicated to advancing international production capability cooperation. From late 2014 to middle 2015, China and several developing economies have scored remarkable achievements in their production capability and equipment manufacturing cooperation, including Kazakhstan, Egypt, Kenya, Indonesia and some Latin American countries.

During Li's visit to Europe this time, production capability cooperation becomes a highlight of China-Europe cooperation.
