Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who returned from his week-long China trip on Sunday, said there were new areas of cooperation in sectors like tourism, power and agriculture that the two countries could work together for mutual benefit.
"India and Bihar in particular will benefit economically if tourists from China visit Buddhist pilgrim interests. Similarly, our people should also visit China to see tourist
places in that country," he told reporters at Jai Prakash Narayan airport on his return.
"The tourism sector has potential for growth bilaterally," he added.
Kumar lauded the commitment of the Chinese towards development of their country and said their dedication was worth emulating.
"I was amazed by the quality of development works in all spheres in China ... Be it infrastructure, bridges, railway network, industries, power, the quality of development
in China is amazing," he said.
Kumar said he would send a delegation of MLAs to China to learn development activities connected with different ministries and benefit from new techniques.
