Chinese Premier Li Keqiang met with visiting German Vice Chancellor and Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy Sigmar Gabriel here on Tuesday.

Li said President Xi Jinping's Germany visit in March has promoted bilateral relations and cooperation. Li also welcomed German Chancellor Angela Merkel to pay an official visit to China this year.

He said China, to maintain steady, sustained and sound economic growth, will deepen its reform, balance the relationship between the government and the market, expand market access, adjust economic structure, as well as develop clean energy and energy conservation and environmental protection technology.

These measures will bring huge opportunities for companies worldwide, he added.

Germany will strengthen cooperation with China in innovation and technology research and development to create more opportunities for the two countries, Gabriel said.
