The Chinese president underlined that both sides should work hard to build large-scale projects within bilateral cooperation, and to accelerate the implementation of the free-trade agreement between China and Serbia. They should also strengthen cooperation in the domain of research and technological innovation, and tighten their ties in education, sports, tourism and other areas.
