WUHAN, June 20 (Xinhua) -- Mozambican Prime Minister Aires Bonifacio Baptista Ali said here his country hopes to expand agricultural cooperation with central China's Hubei Province.

In meeting with Luo Qingquan, secretary of the Hubei Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Saturday, Ali highlighted the results of cooperation with the province in agriculture and encouraged the cooperation to spread to other areas like infrastructure, energy, mining and telecommunication.

During his two-day trip to Hubei that ended Sunday, the Mozambican Prime Minister also attended a workshop on agricultural technology where he invited Chinese businesses to make investments in Mozambique.

China has helped a number of African countries to construct agricultural technology demonstration centers, the first of which was founded in Mozambique in 2008.

Hubei built a pilot farm in Gaza Province of Mozambique in 2007 and both regions have conducted extensive cooperation in recent years.

Luo said Mozambique has great potential for development and the prospects for cooperation between Hubei and more Mozambican regions are great. He added Ali's visit would be a new starting point for improving future cooperation.

Ali arrived in Beijing Wednesday to start his working visit to China. Apart from Beijing and Hubei, he will also visit Shanghai.
