"The relations of both countries are based on mutual trust and mutual respect. This year has seen the deepening of friendship and cooperation," ministry spokesman Qin Qang told a press conference at the Peace Palace in Phnom Penh.

"In recent years in particular, China and Indonesia have maintained very close and frequent high level contact. We there have been very fruitful achievements in trade, economics and culture."

Qin was briefing journalists on a bilateral meeting between Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono who is attending the 21st Asean Summit in the Cambodian capital.

He said that the two countries had very closely collaboration and coordination in regional and global issues.

According to Qin, Wen suggested that in the next phase China would like to make joint efforts with Indonesia to fully implement existing agreements to forge even closer trade and economic ties.

He said the first objective was to make plans for the next five years in trade and economics so that they can select key areas and projects.

"Second is to increase our mutual two-way investment. China continues to encourage Chinese enterprises to increase investment in Indonesia so we can achieve more balanced growth of trade," he added.

Qin emphasised that both sides had to be in mutual accord to address the problems in cooperation. He also said that that both countries could join hands to face the challenges in regional and international financial crises.

He also said that Yudhoyono congratulated Wen on the successful conclusion of the Communist Party of China's congress.

"The Indonesian government is looking forward to working closely with the next generation of Chinese leaders to strengthen strategic relations between the two countries," Qin quoted Yudhoyono as saying.

Qin said the Indonesian side fully agreed with the Chinese side on the proposals and plans for future cooperation and was ready to work with the Chinese side.
