He called for the two sides to step up the mid-and-long term plan for bilateral economic and trade cooperation as well as the outline for cooperation in neighboring areas, speed up the construction of customs posts on both sides of the border and strengthen cooperation in areas including energy, agriculture, finance and infrastructure so as to inject vigor to China-Kazakhstan relations.
