Li spoke highly of the relationship between China and Denmark.

"Health has become one of the most important cooperative fields of the two nations. China and Denmark have achieved advances in medical payment systems, e-health, elderly health, chronic diseases treatment, medical scientific research and food safety," Li said.

She hopes for further cooperation in high level visits, seminars and medical staff training.

Ellemann highly praised China's achievements in the health sector.

"Although China and Denmark are different in national conditions, the two nations face similar health sector challenges and have broad prospects in health cooperation," she noted.

The two sides also exchanged ideas on healthcare reform, mental health, chronic disease prevention and control, and drug policy.

After the meeting, the China National Health Development Research Center signed a memorandum of understanding with the Danish health data administration.
