"I am delighted that NSW and Beijing have confirmed our relationship this year – 2012 marks the 40th anniversary of diplomatic ties between China and Australia.
"China and NSW have strong ties that continue to develop in many areas – this agreement with the capital city of China will enhance and strengthen our relationship.
"Under the agreement Beijing and NSW will work together to develop exchanges and co-operation in areas such as business, culture, education, science and technology and environmental protection to promote mutual benefit and development."
