Portuguese Foreign Minister Augusto Santos Silva has told Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi that the Portuguese market will always be open to Chinese companies, Xinhua reports.
The Chinese government-run news agency quotes Mr Silva as saying so when the ministers attended last Thursday a videoconference intended to contribute to Sino-Portuguese strategic dialogue.
Mr Silva said his country was looking forward to more Sino-Portuguese cooperation, especially in producing vaccines against the COVID-19 virus.
The report quotes Mr Wang as saying his own country is ready for tangible results from trade by China and Portugal and investment in each other, and from Sino-Portuguese engagement in matters of finance, energy, infrastructure, research and development, and technological innovation.
The ministers also exchanged views on other international affairs of common concern, Xinhua says.
