Chinese President Xi Jinping says exchanges between Chinese and New Zealand citizens should be a new driving force for bilateral relations.

The president commented as he concluded a two-day state visit to New Zealand earlier today, addressing a gathering of city mayors from both countries.

"New Zealand Prime Minister John Key and I decided to upgrade the relationship between our two countries to the level of comprehensive strategic partnership. This is not meant to lift dialogue only, but to also inject new vitality to this relationship. So, exchanges in cooperation between our cities should be a new driving force for this relationship."

For his part, New Zealand Prime Minister John Key says the two countries wish to deliver a higher standard of living for the people.

Earlier, the two leaders met with agricultural exporters on a farm in Auckland.

During the Chinese President's visit, the two countries also agreed to increase bilateral trade to 30 billion New Zealand dollars by 2020.
