One involves a senior diplomat's hot-line to address maritime emergencies. The other covers accidental encounters between China and ASEAN in the South China Sea. A China-ASEAN industrial capacity cooperation statement was also reached to promote cooperation in infrastructure, electricity and communications, among others.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has hailed the achievements made so far in China-ASEAN ties. He has pledged to lift the relationship to a new level by building a closer community for a shared future. Li and the Laotian Prime Minister have also inaugurated a handbook on China-ASEAN relations.
