China will strengthen strategic mutual trust and cooperation in economy, trade, mining, hydro-power, agriculture and infrastructure, and coordination with the Laos on international and regional issues, said Xi, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee.
