Information and communication minister Yang Seung-Taik, visiting China in the capacity of a presidential envoy, met with Chinese prime minister Zhu Rongji and discussed ways to promote bilateral cooperation in the Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) industry, the Ministry of Information and Communication said Friday.

Officials said that, at the meeting, Yang delivered a personal letter from president Kim Dae-Jung to Zhu. Zhu then expressed gratitude to president Kim for having a deep interest in Korea-Chinese industrial cooperation and predicted that bilateral CDMA cooperation would proceed smoothly.

Particularly, Zhu hinted at supporting Korea-Chinese CDMA cooperation by saying that Korean participation in China`s mammoth CDMA project to attract more than 60 million subscribers would be essential.

He also praised Korea for reacting properly to the dispute over Japanese textbooks, and he promised full support for the project to construct a ``Trans-Eurasia (Europe to Asia)`` information network proposed by president Kim last year during his visit to Europe.
