BANGKOK, Nov. 11 (Xinhua) -- Visiting top legislator Wu Bangguo met Chai Chidchob, President of the Thai National Assembly and Speaker of the House of Representatives here on Wednesday over stepping up bilateral legislative cooperation.

Strengthening exchanges between the two countries' legislatures will contribute to each other's national construction and development, Wu said.

The Chinese top legislator said the National People's Congress of China is ready to further friendly exchanges with Thai parliament at various levels and exchange experiences in governing the country, administrating government affairs, developing economy, improving people's lives, maintaining social stability, promoting national solidarity and strengthening democracy and legislation so as to push forward bilateral cooperation in economy, politics and culture and enrich contents for and add vitality to bilateral relations.

Highly evaluating bilateral relations, Wu said both sides have been consistently rendering support for major issues related to each other's core interests, pressing economic and trade cooperation ahead, unfolding cultural exchanges, developing people- to-people exchanges since the establishment of diplomatic ties 35 years ago.

These efforts have brought not only tangible benefits to the two countries and the two peoples, but also contributed to regional peace, stability and development, Wu said.
