NANNING, June 20 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar's second top leader Maung Aye concluded a week-long visit to China and returned home Saturday afternoon.

Maung Aye, vice-chairman of the Myanmar State Peace and Development Council (SPDC), arrived in Nanning, capital city of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, from east China's Zhejiang Province Friday night.

Guo Shengkun, the Communist Party chief of Guangxi, met him Saturday noon.

Guo said Guangxi and Myanmar have complementary economies, and the two should promote cooperation in agricultural, trade, mining and cultural areas.

Maung Aye said Myanmar hopes to expand cooperation with China in resources exploration, and will actively participate in the China-ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Expo in Nanning this October.

Nanning was Maung Aye's last leg of China tour. He also visited Beijing, Shaanxi and Zhejiang.
