Xi wrote in the article that industrial capacity cooperation should be made a new area of growth in bilateral cooperation.

Beijing and Astana also need to promote high-tech and innovation cooperation and develop programs that help bring people of the two nations closer, Xi said.

The president especially noted that Kazakh singer Dimash Kudaibergenov is "now a household name in China". Popular Chinese films and TV series, such as A Bite of China or Family on the Go, have captivated more and more Kazakh viewers.

"China will encourage more visits by its citizens to Kazakhstan for tourism so that they will see for themselves the unparalleled beauty of this 'Uly Dala Eli', the land of the great steppe," the president wrote.

The two sides will also deepen security cooperation, including measures for Belt and Road cooperation, to ensure the security of oil and gas pipelines and other large projects, he added.

As for the SCO summit, Xi said in the article that "heads of the member states will make a number of important decisions on deepening cooperation in all fields and completing the organization's first membership expansion".

China will succeed Kazakhstan as the rotating chair at the conclusion of this summit.

Xi added that the theme of the Astana Expo 2017, Future Energy, "is very much in line with the global trend toward green, healthy and sustainable economic growth and highly compatible with China's initiative on a green Silk Road".

Xinhua contributed to this story.
