BEIJING, May 11 (Xinhua) -- China and Denmark had forged good cooperation and friendship in the past six decades, bringing "real and tremendous" benefits to both peoples, a senior Chinese diplomat said Tuesday.

Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Fu Ying made the remarks in Beijing at a reception held by the Danish embassy to China celebrating the 60 years of China-Denmark diplomatic relations.

Working as an interpreter and accompanying the Queen Mother of Denmark on her visit to China in the mid-1980s, Fu said nobody expected the trade volume between the two countries would grow the way it had.

"For many years now China has been the largest trade partner of Denmark in Asia."

Even in the most remote areas of China, the Danish beer, Carlsberg, could be seen and many garment brands from Denmark were very popular among Chinese young people, she said.

In 2008, China and Denmark established an all-around strategic partnership to expand bilateral relations, as evidenced by closer cooperation in clean energy technologies, research and education and growing people-to-people exchanges.

"On clean technology, Denmark has been a first mover. And China is certainly a fast mover. Eventually, we will become the leading clean-tech economies of tomorrow," Danish Permanent Secretary of State Claus Grube said at the event.

One in every 1,000 Danes were studying, working or traveling in China and Chinese businesses were establishing themselves in Denmark, which increased mutual understanding, said Grube.
