KIEV, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- China's Guangdong Province will expand cooperation with Ukraine in economics, trade, technology and culture, its Party chief Wang Yang said here Monday in a meeting with Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov.

"Guangdong will make its own contributions to the China-Ukraine annual trade target of 10 billion U.S. dollars by 2012," Wang said, recalling Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich's earlier visit to China.

Early in September, Yanukovich held talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao, top legislator Wu Bangguo and Premier Wen Jiabao during his four-day visit. The two sides agreed to boost economic and parliamentary cooperation as well as increase two-way trade to 10 billion U.S. dollars by 2012.

"The extensive consensus between top leaders has given a clear direction to the future China-Ukraine ties," Wang said.

Azarov said bilateral cooperation had great potential and a bright future in areas of infrastructure, trade and investment, adding that Ukraine would fully implement all the consensus and agreements with China.

The delegation led by Wang arrived in Ukraine on Saturday at the invitation of the Ukrainian Party of Regions.

Azarov, also the Party leader, said the Party of Regions attaches great importance to its cooperation with the Communist Party of China (CPC), hoping to learn from the CPC in governing the country.

The CPC would like to develop friendly and cooperative relations with the Ukrainian Party of Regions, Wang said.
