Wen Jiabao made the pledge during a meeting with Argentine agricultural officials and representatives at a farm near the capital.

Both China and Argentina are large agricultural countries with each boasting different competitive advantages. He pointed out that the two countries’ agriculture industries are highly complementary, given Argentina’s rich resources, advanced technologies and China’s huge market potential.

Agricultural trade hit about 5.5 billion US dollars in 2011, comprising mostly of exports from Argentina to China, according to Chinese customs figures.
