China encourages foreign experts to help upgrade its technological innovation and the quality of economic growth, Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Dejiang said Sunday.

More than 270 experts from both countries attended the Eighth Sino-American Technology and Engineering Conference on April 11-18, at which they conducted academic exchanges in fields of advanced manufacturing, information technology, biomedicine and environmental protection.

Stressing that China was at a crucial stage of transforming the economic growth pattern, Zhang said China will continue to boost international cooperation and attract foreign expertise in science and technology.
