Hu recalled his recent state visit to Canada, during which he reached consensus with Canadian leaders on developing bilateral relations and other issues of common concern.

He extended a warm welcome to Jean and hoped she enjoyed celebrating Canada Day at the Canadian pavilion at the Shanghai Expo.

China hopes to make joint efforts with Canada to respect and accommodate each other's core interests and major concerns, step up bilateral friendly exchanges and pragmatic cooperation, enhance coordination on major international and regional issues to push forward the bilateral strategic partnership, Hu added.

Calling her current China visit a "trip of friendship," Jean said she was greatly impressed by China's prosperity, the colorful Shanghai Expo, the brand-new look of the country's Sichuan quake area as well as the Chinese people's friendly sentiments towards Canada.

She said she is confident of promoting friendly cooperation with China, and hopes to strengthen mutual trust, boost innovation, cooperation and cultural exchanges, in a bid to facilitate greater progress of the Canada-China strategic partnership.

During her week-long stay in China, Jean has so far visited Beijing, Shanghai and southwestern China's Sichuan Province, and will soon head for southern China's Guangdong Province.
