According to He, a series of agreements on sister-city programmes and sports cooperation signed at the conference are bound to boost the economic, trade and cultural exchanges between Henan and Uruguay, and continuously consolidate the public support for the friendship between the two sides. It is suggested to further develop high-level bilateral cooperation and expand its depth and breadth to promote the deep integration of industries and markets. Besides, the two sides should play their respective advantages, consolidate cooperation in such traditional fields as agriculture and agricultural products, and seek new cooperation in cross-border e-commerce, “exchange of agricultural machinery for soybeans”, new crop planting, etc. At the same time, the bilateral exchanges in such areas as tourism, sports, literature and art should be strengthened to build Henan-Uruguay cooperation into an example of cooperation between China and Latin American countries.
Fernando Lugris remarked that an in-depth understanding of Henan is of great significance to the promotion of China-Uruguay strategic partnership since Henan is an important agricultural and industrial province as well as a transportation hub in China, so he expected more fruitful cooperation projects between the two sides.
