Speaking positively of China-Australia relations, Li said strengthening contacts between the two parties' young political figures will help promote the long-term and stable development of all-round cooperative bilateral ties.

He told Bitar China will stick to a peaceful road and hopes to build a harmonious world with other countries.

In response, Bitar said the two economies are highly compatible and that his country regards China's development as an opportunity.

The ALP attaches great importance to its relations with the CPC and will continue to promote bilateral exchange and cooperation in various areas, he added.
