BEIJING - Trade relations between China and Turkey will deepen in the coming years despite inevitable frictions, experts said.

"Trade frictions between China and Turkey are inevitable as bilateral trade volume expands and the global economic slowdown intensifies export competition between the two fast-growing economies," Li Guofu, director of the Center of Middle East Studies in China Institute of International Studies, told China Daily.

"But the bilateral trade prospects are broad and will not be affected by trade frictions as China's fast development also benefits Turkey," Li said.

Gong Xiaosheng, Chinese ambassador to Turkey, agreed with the promising future in Sino-Turkish cooperation.

"As strategic partners, China and Turkey will embrace comprehensive cooperation, and the potential of cooperation under international organizations, including the United Nations, is vast," Gong said when addressing the International Conference on China in the World Order and the Turkish-Chinese Relationship in Ankara on Feb 10.
