Mauricio Funes, president-elect of El Salvador, said Wednesday that he was interested in exploring the establishment of diplomatic relations and strengthening trade relations with the Asian country.
In order to exploit the opportunities offered by the Chinese market, the Salvadoran government is studying a way to do it without affecting relations with Taiwan.
The summit, which attracted about 200 businessmen from both countries, seeks to cement trade relations.
In the first meeting held no important issues are ever discussed, rather parties seek to build a relationship based on mutual trust and a sprinkling of friendship.
The visit of president Hu Jintao to Costa Rica will strengthen the commercial ties with China, which are vital for increasing Costa Rica's presence in Asian markets.
