On June 26, Vice Minister Han Jun met with Mr. Rubén Ernesto Flores Agreda, Minister of Agriculture and Livestock of Ecuador, in Beijing.

Vice Minister Han briefly reviewed achievements of China-Ecuador agricultural cooperation and put forward three suggestions in order to promote the future cooperation. Firstly, enhance communication and coordination under the framework of the China-Ecuador Joint Agricultural Committee. The 2nd Meeting of the China-Ecuador Joint Agricultural Committee should be held as soon as possible and the memorandum of understanding on agricultural cooperation between the two ministries  be signed at an appropriate time. Secondly, promote bilateral agricultural trade. China welcomes the Ecuadorean side to participate in the First China International Import Expo to be held in Shanghai in November this year and the 16th China AG Trade Fair to be held in Changsha. Thirdly, conduct trainings on agricultural human resources. Ecuadorean agricultural administrators and technicians are welcome to participate in the training courses on agricultural policies and technologies in China, and scientific research institutions in the two countries are encouraged to train master degree and doctoral degree students in agriculture. Vice Minister Han also exchanged ideas with Mr. Flores on China-Ecuador pelagic fisheries and the investments of Chinese agricultural enterprises in rice breeding in Ecuador. 

Mr. Flores said that he fully agreed with the suggestions proposed by the Chinese side. The Ecuadoran side gives high priority to China-Ecuador agricultural cooperation and will actively make pragmatic practices in order to promote the comprehensive development of China-Ecuador agricultural cooperation.
