China and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) discussed the making of a road map for industrial cooperation at an ongoing expo in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on Wednesday.

At the China-ASEAN Expo's Roundtable Meeting on Investment Cooperation in Nanning, capital of Guangxi, Chinese and ASEAN officials working in investment exchanged ideas on deepening cooperation in various fields.

The meeting has reached agreement on priority areas of industrial cooperation for next year.

Corazon H. Dichosa, an officer of the Board of Investments of the Philippines, said at the meeting that China and ASEAN member nations complement each other in many industrial areas, and that both sides should help each other "like brothers."
